Former India batsman Sanjay Manjrekar has a knack of inviting trolls from the fans. Every now and then the cricketer-turned-commentator comes up with a statement or a tweet that compels the fans to take a shot at him. And it would not be entirely wrong to say that he has now made it a habit. Unsurprisingly, the cricket fans also keenly wait for the opportunity to have a mighty laugh at Manjrekar’s expense.
Well, in his latest blunder, Manjrekar made a hilarious gaffe in the commentary box during the third match of this IPL between Mumbai Indians and Delhi Capitals at the Wankhede Stadium. The game was tipped to be high-scoring and so far it has lived up to the expectations. Batting first, Capitals have posted a massive total of 213 for 6 in the allotted 20 overs The visitors were off to a disastrous start as they lost Prithvi Shaw and skipper Shreyas Iyer for just 29 runs on the board.
But from thereon it was just one-way traffic. Shikhar Dhawan and Colin Ingram steadied the ship and laid the foundation for the big total by sharing 83 runs for the third wicket before departing in quick succession. Ben Cutting broke the stand by dismissing Ingram for 47 before Hardik Pandya accounted for Shikhar Dhawan for 43.
But those two wickets did not bring any respite for the three-time champions as Rishabh Pant played a blinder of an innings. The southpaw hit every bowler that he faced all around the park including Jasprit Bumrah to take the score past the 200-run mark. He eventually remained unbeaten on 78 off just 27 balls. The knock contained 7 fours and as many sixes.
Now coming to Manjrekar’s mistake in the game, he was commentating in English. The Mumbaikar then, for some reason known only to him, suddenly decided to switch to Hindi. And the fans were quick to take note of that hilarious mistake. In no time, they took to Twitter to mercilessly Manjrekar once again.
Here are some of the reactions:
