Sanjay Manjrekar who is a part of the commentary team for the South Africa series recently released his autobiography titled as imperfect where he has penned down several memorable incidents from his cricket career.
Recalling an incident involving India batting legend Sachin Tendulkar and Imran during the India-Pakistan Test in 1989 at Faisalabad, Manjrekar described how focussed the latter would remain on the field.
“In the Faisalabad Test, Sachin Tendulkar got light feather of a touch as he looked to work it off his hip. It was such a faint edge that no one appealed. Except for Imran Khan, who was at mid-on,” wrote Manjrekar.
“At the end of the over, Tendulkar and I got together, and he said, ‘What a guy, what sharp ears’. He knew he had edged it,” Manjrekar added.
Manjrekar had top scored with a 240-ball 76 for India in the first innings of the Test in which the visitors were bundled out for 288. His form continued in the second innings too, scoring 83 off 189 balls. This incidentally was the debut series of Sachin Tendulkar.
