West Indian Players Takes A Dig On Commentator Sanjay Manjrekar
On Sunday, the match between Mumbai Indians and Kolkata Knight riders was held at Wankhede Stadium. The West Indian all-rounder Kieron Pollard slammed former Indian cricketer Sanjay Manjrekar for calling him ‘brainless’.
Manjerekar commentating on Pollard's dismissal said, "When I look at Pollard, I look at him as more a six-seven-overs-left-in-the-innings batsman. Whether he will be able to bat at No 3 and whether he has the versatility to pick up the singles if the boundaries are not coming, does he have the range as a batsman? I don't think so. My view is, maybe six or seven overs left in the innings is the perfect time for Pollard to come in."
Pollard came out to bat at No.6 on Sunday with MI at 74/3 after the dismissal of captain Rohit Sharma and managed to score only 17. He was caught by Rishi Dhawan off a Chris Woakes delivery, chasing a total of 179.
The all-rounder west Indian player either misunderstood the comment or was misinterpreted.
Kieron Pollard took twitter to send the message to Sanjay and wrote "@sanjaymanjrekar u feel any positive can come out of your mouth bcuz u get pay to talk u can continue with your verbal diarrhea .."
He also added "Do you know how I get big so.. about BRAINLESS.. words are very powerful .. once it leaves u can't take it back.. sins of parents fall on..." and "U finish that sentence .. !! "
Then he also celebrated MI victory over KKR.
However West Indian player is not new to controversies. In 2014, Pollard was involved in an ugly on-field spat with former Royal Challengers Bangalore pacer Mitchell Starc. The two of them had had a go at each other with Pollard even threatening to throw his bat at the left-arm speedster. The very next year, Pollard had taped his mouth in protest after he had been warned over verbal jousting by the umpire.
