Former Indian cricketer Murali Vijay, who comes from Tamil Nadu in India, didn’t mince his phrases when he was criticising commentator Sanjay Manjrekar for his bias in the direction of gamers who come from similar state as his. Vijay took to twitter and wrote: “Some Mumbai ex players can never be appreciative of the south.” Vijay additionally tagged Manjrekar within the tweet to make sure his criticism was not imprecise. Manjrekar apparently was stunned to see Vijay’s identify within the record of India batters who had greatest conversion fee batting in India. Vijay sits atop with 60 % conversion fee. In 30 matches, he has 6 fifties and 9 tons batting in India. Conversion fee is how properly a batter converts a begin into a giant rating. Right here the parameter was a minimal of ten 50-plus scores.

Even Laxman Sivaramakrishnan, former spinner who too belongs to Tamil Nadu, criticised Manjrekar. He replied to Vijay: “Why surprised Sanjay Manjrekar? There was a time when Vijay and Pujara had the highest partnership average for the top order. Interesting comment.”

Vijay just lately retired from all types of cricket with 3982 runs in 61 Check matches that included 15 fifties and 12 tons. He was averaged 38.29.
This isn’t the primary time an Indian cricketer, former or present, has reacted strongly to one in all Manjrekar’s feedback on air. Again in 2019, Indian all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja had slammed Manjrekar, asking him to cease his ‘verbal diarrhoea’. It was in response to Manjrekar calling Jadeja a ‘bits and items cricketer’ in white-ball cricket. Final yr, throughout Asia Cup, Manjrekar and Jadeja grew to become buddies once more when the commetator politely requested the all-rounder if he was okay to talk to him within the presentation ceremony. The query broke the ice and Jadeja smiled and stated that he was able to do the interview.
Hopefully a peace treaty is signed quickly between Manjrekar and Vijay too.
