Sanjay Manjrerkar, the former Indian cricketer and controversy go hand in hand. And, he was yet again in the spotlight for disrespecting Harsha Bhogle while commentating during the Eden Test. However, such behavior of the former didn’t go down well with the fans and was criticised upside down on social media. Also, the heat reached the courtyard of Murali Kartik, the former Indian spinner.
In the Day-Night Test, the Indian fast bowlers looked pretty lethal and were bang on with the pace. On numerous occasions in the match, the Bangladesh batters were hit on their helmet with the bouncers. Moreover, in the same game, two batsmen from the visitors side got substituted after getting hit by the ball. However, Mehidy Hasan replaced Liton Das and Taijul Islam replaced Nayeem Hasan as a concussion substitute.

The same discussion was going in the commentary box when Harsha Bhogle said that several incidents have taken place in the same match. And, it looks like the Bangladesh batsmen are finding it difficult to sight the pink ball. So, he gave his opinion to do a “post-mortem” of the ball after the game.
“Well there is a post-mortem done on this game and there should be a post mortem on this game. Visibility of that ball will be a big factor against the big white sight-screen,” Bhogle said as quoted by DNA.
In reply to it, Manjrekar recited that if slip catchers can see the ball then the batters shouldn’t have that problem. The 54-year-old also added that he is a former player so he doesn’t want any post-mortem. As per him, unlike Bhogle he had an idea because he has played the game.
“Don’t think so. Because when you see the slip catchers the way they have taken catches. “You need to ask perhaps, for us, those who have played the game, we have a fair idea of what’s happening out there,” Manjrekar added.
So, in order to take a dig on Manjrekar, a fan took to his Twitter handle, and wrote, “I think the next item on Dada’s To-Do list should be de-list Sanjay Manjrekar. Adds absolutely no value, raging sycophant, makes watching Cricket a painful experience and is an around nuisance. We deserve better”

Later on, another fan joined the conversation and said that please include former Indian spinner Murali Kartik in that to-do list as well and replied, “Plead dada SGanguly to add Kartik murali to the list too. Absolutely pathetic”.
