As social media is buzzing with tweets on Bazzball, former Indian cricketer-turned-commentator Sanjay Manjrekar came up with a hilarious Tweet while talking about the viral term. In his Tweet, Sanjay Manjrekar took a hilarious dig at Brendon McCullum by writing how Bazzball is similar to what Rishabh Pant is doing since the last 31 Tests. He wrote:

“So what’s Bazball? Well, it’s how Rishabh Pant has been playing in his last 31 Tests.”

Earlier, after the conclusion of the final Test match, Rahul Dravid was asked about his thoughts on the Bazzball concept during a press conference. The team India coach, in his reply, had said, “Don’t really know what’s that. I would definitely say that the kind of cricket they have been playing in the last few months has been really good. They have been really good at chasing. That chasing is not easy in fourth innings in England. Whatever brand of cricket one wants to play, it depends a lot on the players and the kind of form they are in presently. When the players are in good form, you obviously play a more positive game, like we did in that innings where Pant and Jadeja were batting.”
