Sanjay Manjrekar is having a bad time on Twitter. Well, that is as obvious as the sky is blue. His shots at players or a team get slammed by the fans.
Recently, when England crushed Sri Lanka in a three-match Test series at their home Manjrekar targetted Ben Stokes and accused him of stealing credit without doing much. But unlike other cricketers, Stokes responded to him which created a lot of buzz on social media.
This time Manjrekar took a dig at West Indies who lost to Bangladesh in the second Test by an innings and lost the series 0-2. Commenting on the loss, he said, "If you don't play spin well, don't bother going to Bangladesh".
If you don’t play spin well, don’t bother going to Bangladesh. They play four good spinners now. There’s no escape.#TrialBySpin— Sanjay Manjrekar (@sanjaymanjrekar) December 3, 2018
Fans were ready to hop in and slam Manjrekar. Their support on a topic usually depends on the cricketer-turned-commentator. If Manjrekar is slamming a team, they would start supporting them to counter him.
Twitter once again lashed out at the former Indian cricketer. Here is how they reacted:
Also Zimbabwe ???????? defeated Bangladesh on a rank turner. Believe it’s more of a wind the toss and bat first and get 350-400 on the board. Team batting 2nd will definitely struggle— Karan Sharma (@PunjKaran) December 3, 2018
Velakenna, eng played much better than this.. and all you did was criticize.— Harish (@harishkp21) December 3, 2018
So Bangladesh should not go to England then???— ASB (@ahmad9998) December 3, 2018
???????? you mean only Asian countries should go there! Interesting to see ENG going to Bangladesh now— The RC- Rajan Chande (@ChandeRajan) December 3, 2018
By that logic everyone should stay at home. Sir these days you seem out of it. Hope all is ok. Get well soon.— ASB (@ahmad9998) December 3, 2018
Isn’t that how you improve? India have been going to Africa and Australia for 35 years now without winning. Should they stop touring?— Nishant Patel (@patel_nishu) December 3, 2018
None of your statements make any sense.— Sambit kumar Parida (@ucntcme90) December 3, 2018
In that sense only Virat should go outside the subcontinent from India. You have a very horrible way of analyzing.— Nihar Bhatnagar (@nihar_bhatnagar) December 3, 2018
So why we went to England then?? When we can't play swing well as England plays 4 good fast bowlers— Vaibhavbansal (@vaibhavbnsl21) December 3, 2018
