Sanjay Manjrekar, commentator and former India cricketer, has been reportedly dropped from BCCI’s commentary staff.
According to a report in Mumbai Mirror, a BCCI supply has confirmed that Manjrekar has been excluded from India matches and is likely to be dropped from the IPL commentary staff too.
“Maybe he will be left out from the IPL panel too. At this stage, it is not on top of our mind. But the fact is they are not happy with his work,” the report quotes a BCCI supply as saying, including that the cricketer was not accessible for a response.
Manjrekar had an eventful time in 2019, when he acquired into an issue for having known as all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja a bits-and-pieces participant.
Chennai Super Kings, Jadeja’s IPL staff, appeared to take a sly dig at Manjrekar’s ouster on Saturday.
Need not hear the audio feed in bits and items anymore. 🦁💛

There have been a lot hypothesis on why Manjrekar has been dropped from the BCCI commentary staff.
Can’t see any purpose to be pleased a couple of commentator dropping his job.
Can see a number of purpose to fret although, particularly if stated commentator is being let go for expressing a political view.

You might not agree with him, however @sanjaymanjrekar is without doubt one of the finest commentators round. By throwing him out, Ganguly-led BCCI has primarily stated we don’t need essential evaluation, solely cheerleaders. https://t.co/Jw8GOlWtm8
