The veteran Indian commentator, Sanjay Manjrekar has often been seen giving divided opinions on air and on social media. He has been known among his fans but because of the reasons, he would have liked to. Many call him biased towards cricketers with Mumbai origin while many takes dig at his commentary. And Manjrekar’s tweets have a different fan base of his its own. Well, it seems like former India skipper, Sourav Ganguly is not a big fan of Manjrekar’s tweets either.
On Sunday, Ganguly tweeted something without mentioning Manjrekar and took an indirect dig at the latter. Fans were quick to state that the tweet was for Manjrekar and it became more or less clear when they found out that Manjrekar himself had posted a tweet which was related to Ganguly a couple of hours ago. It all began when Sanjay attempted to take a dig Ganguly – the commentator.
Manjrekar tweeted, “Always happy when Sourav Ganguly is in the commentary. You get to relax not just in between commentary stints but during it too.”

Well, Manjrekar learned his lesson soon that he picked up the wrong person as Ganguly gave him a fitting reply. Ganguly did not tag Manjrekar in his tweet but in ordeert to pull his leg, Dada tweeted, “His comments on Twitter is a bit like his batting meaningless and and lack of ideas .. may be just an attention seeker…in the negative way”.

With World Cup expected to be lasting more than 4 weeks, one should not be surprised if Ganguly and Manjrekar take shots at each other once again. Neither of the two likes to back down and fans can definitely expect some more fireworks.
Talking about Sunday’s match, India beat Australia by 36 runs to register their second win of the competition. Batting first, India scored 352 for 5 in the stipulated 50 overs. In reply, Australia was all out for 316.
