Team India registered a dominating win over Bangladesh by an innings and 46 runs in the second Test in Kolkata to clean sweep the series on Sunday. While the Indian skipper, Virat Kohli drew all the praise from fans across the country, former India batsman Sanjay Manjrekar received a lot of heat.

During the match, Manjrekar had an argument with fellow commentator Harsha Bhogle over reviewing pink-ball cricket after India’s first Day-night Test. Bhogle had asked for a proper analysis of the pink-ball Test and suggested that players should be asked about any problems in sighting the ball.

Manjrekar was quick to respond and said that “only you need to ask Harsha, not us, who have played a fair bit of the game.” Fans on Twitter did not like Manjrekar’s comments on his fellow commentator’s concern for the visibility of the pink ball.

One of the fans tweeted: “It is this incredible smugness that makes #SanjayManjrekar the worst possible broadcaster in the history of the game. Unreal arrogance combined with a total ignorance about his own pathetic quality as a commentator. A public apology to #Harshabhogle is the least he can do”.

Another fan wrote: “U were right @bhogleharsha. Nothing wrong in asking the batsmen from both teams. Good to know the opinion. @sanjaymanjrekar u were rude.U dont know how to talk to ur fellow commentator even if he didnt play the game. How many matches did u won for IND. Watch ur language #INDvBAN”.

Taking a dig at Manjrekar, a wrote: “Really didn’t expect that from you @sanjaymanjrekar A player turned broadcaster who knows the difference between the two professions. You were almost questioning Bhogle’s credentials to voice his opinion. It didn’t sound good”.

In the match, Bangladesh’s batsmen were troubled by the short ball barrage from India’s fast bowlers. Two Bangladesh players were substituted after being hit on the head due to concussion.
