Sanjay Manjrekar And Harsha Bhogle’s Heated Exchange On Air Is Trending On Twitter

The Indian cricket team kickstarted their day/night test match journey with an amazing way by thrashing Bangladesh by an innings and 46 runs.

The fans came in large numbers to witness the Indian cricket team playing first pink ball test and there’s no denying the fact that it was an absolute eye-treat for the fans to witness the amazing pink-ball Tests.

However, amidst the match, something happened that has caught everyone’s attention. A heated banter took place between Indian commentators Harsha Bhogle and Sanjay Manjrekar while commentating during the just-concluded second Test.


While the energy was at its peak during the match as the Indian cricket team was heading towards the win. The two commentators were talking about the visibility of the pink balls and this is when things got out of control. The heated argument started when Harsha Bhogle opined that consulting the players should be the best option to get the views on the pink ball. He said:

“When there is a post-mortem done of this match, the visibility of the ball will be one of the things to look at,”

But Sanjay Manjrekar, who has played only 37 Tests and 74 One-Day Internationals for India, disagreed with Bhogle’s statement and came up with a rude reply. He said:

“Don’t think so. Don’t think visibility is an issue,”

He added:

“You need to ask perhaps, for us, those who have played the game, we have a fair idea of what’s happening out there.”


While the heated conversation was still going on, Al-Amin Hossain played a shot through mid-wicket for four. Sanjay Manjrekar, who was still not done with the conversation, sarcastically said that the lower-order batsman saw the ball well enough there. In response.

However, Harsha Bhogle came up with a rather sensible reply, he said:

“Having played cricket should never be a limitation or a ceiling to learning.”

Here, watch the entire conversation:

Twitterati are left in anger after hearing the banter between the two. People just can’t stop slamming Sanjay Manjrekar for the way he talked to Harsha Bhogle. From calling him arrogant to requesting BCCI’s new President Sourav Ganguly to end his commentary contract, people are leaving no stone unturned to slam him.
