Well, recently, Ravi Shastri had said that people wouldn’t have been able to digest the success of Virat Kohli in the longest format of the game. Talking to India Today, Shastri had said:

“Whether Virat could have continued to lead India in Tests. For sure, he could have led India for at least 2 years because next two years India would be playing at home and who is coming over – 9 and 10 jacks, going by the rankings. But he would have then made it to 50-60 wins under his captaincy and a lot of people will not be able to digest that fact,”

Reacting to the comments of Ravi Shastri, Sanjay Manjrekar made some bold remarks. Speaking to CNN-News18, Manjrekar said that he doesn’t understand Ravi Shastri’s 2.0 version and that he doesn’t make accurate cricket observations.

The cricketer-turned-commentator expressed how he ‘was’ a huge admirer of Shastri during his playing days. He also said that the former all-rounder used to support youngsters, however, now he feels that Shastri’s statements have an agenda behind them. He said:

I was a huge admirer of Ravi Shastri. I played under him, he gave players support, a great fighter, senior. This Shastri 2.0 I don’t understand. What he says in public is expected, I don’t react to it. I don’t want to be disrespectful. He doesn’t make very intelligent comments, you can see the agenda behind it. It’s not an accurate cricketing observation,”
