Sanjay Manjrekar loves cricket and Twitter, but both don't love him back. The commentator had another bad day on the micro-blogging site after his tweet attracted trolls.
Manjrekar tweeted, "He is a big hitter of the cricket ball.* *Wrist spin not included." Without mentioning any name, he meant that batsmen these days find it hard to play wrist spinners, no matter how hard hitter they are.
He is a big hitter of the cricket ball.*— Sanjay Manjrekar (@sanjaymanjrekar) June 29, 2018
*Wrist spin not included.
Wrist spinners have taken cricketing world by storm and cricket world has acknowledged it. But what Twitter never admits is Sanjay Manjrekar's opinion. No matter what, they have to come back at him with sharp digs.
Not too long when the commentator turned cricketer had to face the fire of Twitter. During IPL, he was trolled by some Twitter users for getting Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) wicketkeeper Quinton de Kock's name wrong. Manjrekar in his tweet misspelled the South African cricketer’s name as Quinton 'De Cock'. He wrote, “See how important wicket keeping is in T20s also! #QuintonDeCock (sic)”
