Match Tied (Royal Challengers Bangalore win one-over eliminator)
Former Indian batsman turned commentator Sanjay Manjrekar has found himself in the midst of controversies in recent times. A subject of much public backlash from cricket fans for hi supposedly biased commentary, Manjrekar had also got involved in a row with Ravindra Jadeja a week ago.
Manjrekar had termed the all-rounder as a ‘bits and pieces cricketer’ which drew the ire of Jadeja, who lashed out at the ex-cricketer on Twitter. Now, the 53-year-old has received criticism from Bollywood actor Siddharth who was quite brutal in his assessment of Manjrekar’s commentary.
The renowned showbiz personality used words such “terrible”, “partisan” and “crass” to describe the commentator even going as far as calling him an “idiot”. These harsh words only add to the negative narrative surrounding Manjrekar.
