Pollard - Manjrekar verbal diarrhea

Wednesday, April 12, 2017

Gentleman's game of cricket is suffering at the hands of new generation of cricketers opting to play shortest form of the game for big money.  As IPL 10 season began during the summer, the heat generated on the field will be passed on in parts outside the playing arena as well. Sanjay Manjrekar - Kieron Pollard spat and subsequent tweet was all in bad taste and the social media is able to generate heat as the matter was taken off the field as well. Sitting in commentary box and criticising and playing the game in the middle are two different things. How can man sitting with mike in hand make a hasty remark about the way Pollard got out and making a critical analysis saying that the batsman is only good enough to bat for the last six or seven overs is too much. Hit and run game of T-20 cricket need big hitters and these cricketers did not wait for national selection but ready to play IPL because it involves big money. Sanjay Manjrekar crossed the limits and Pollard paid him in his own coin. Pollard - Manjrekar verbal diarrhea is assuming greater importance than Slapgate, which left more Mumbai player in a spot and banned for the rest of the IPL season. The case of Harsha Bhogle leaving the commentator's box scene is fresh in our minds for all the wrong reasons.

Aries (Mar 21 - Apr 20)Maybe the way you’re handling difficult situations is becoming counterproductive. Don’t hedge your bets simply take up something that needs attention. You stand to benefit from short term deposits. A leisure pastime could lead to great achievements and could propel you into the limelight. There is someone interested in you romantically but you have not noticed. A certain development might show you the way to proceed.
