“It is surprising for many people. They keep tagging me and saying most of the cricketers have not come out. I cannot speak for anyone. Everybody has decided how they want to lead their lives, whether they want to be vocal about certain issues or not is completely up to them,” Tiwary forth his opinions during a live chat with Sportskeeda.

“I personally feel that people should obviously come out. As a public figure, we have responsibility. Our honest fans and lovers expect a lot of things out of us. They expect us to not only come out on the field and do well but at the same time when important issues come in our country, they expect us to come out and have a say,” he mentioned.

Tiwary also gives his opinion that cricketers remain silent as they don’t want to get involved into controversies. “But at the same time, I can understand why many people don’t come out and say what they want to. They want to be diplomatic. That’s fine with me but I’m not that sort of a person,” Tiwary added.
