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.

Stay clear of fresh proposals and also from those people who are known to give unwanted advice. You are better judge of your condition and take all measures to protect your job or financial interests. At a family gathering you may not like the overtures or attention of a person who is a pest, say so in your own interest. You will not be hurting anyone.
