Recently, Sanjay Manjrekar lost his place on the BCCI commentary panel. He was not even a part of the first ODI between India and South Africa in Dharamsala.
He said that he respected his employer’s decision and also commentary was never an entitlement, rather, it was a privilege. Furthermore, he contemplated that the committee was not happy with his performance and that he accepted the situation as any seasoned professional would. In any case, the IPL is postponed due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.
To his credit, Sanjay Manjrekar was part of the World Cup 2019, as a commentator.
During the world cup 2019 in England, Sanjay Manjrekar commented that the Indian all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja was a ‘bits and pieces cricketer’ although he later apologized.
In an ensuing debate, Sanjay is said to have quipped about his achievements and continuous learning abilities, while snubbing other verbal wisecracks.
An unhappy CSK also tweeted that they do not need to hear bits and pieces of audio. Co-commentator Harsha Bhogle has also been a victim to Sanjay Manjrekar’s criticism, while on air.
