With more than a month remaining in the World Cup, one should not be surprised if Ganguly and Manjrekar take shots at each other once again.

Sanjay Manjrekar has divided opinions more often than not because of his comments on air and social media. The former India batsman is popular among the fans but not because of the reasons he would have liked to. Many call him biased towards Mumbai players while many make fun of his commentary. And it would not be very wrong to say that Manjrekar’s tweets do not go down well with the fans either. Well, it seems like former India skipper Sourav Ganguly is not a big fan of Manjrekar’s tweets either.

The legendary batsman, on Sunday, posted a tweet without mentioning Manjrekar in which he took a sly dig. 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 for Ganguly a couple of hours ago. It all began when Manjrekar took a cheeky dig at Ganguly the commentator.

The ex-cricketer-turned-commentator Sanjay indirectly said that Ganguly doesn’t let others speak much in the commentary box, writing, “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 picked up the wrong person and must have been regretting his decision as Ganguly gave him a fitting reply. Ganguly did not tag Manjrekar in his tweet but there is little doubt that it was for him as he wrote, “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 more than a month remaining in the World Cup, 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 game, India beat Australia by 36 runs to register their second win of the competition. Batting first, India posted 352 for 5 in the stipulated 50 overs. In reply, Australia were all out for 316.
