Recently Manjrekar also had a friendly exchange with Ravichandran Ashwin. Manjrekar had commented that he doesn’t consider the off-spinner as an all-time great. He had tweeted, “All-time great’ is the highest praise & acknowledgement given to a cricketer. Cricketers like Don Bradman, Sobers, Gavaskar, Tendulkar, Virat etc are all time greats in my book. With due respect, Ashwin not quite there as an all-time great yet”.
Ashwin reacted to Manjrekar’s comments with a meme from a Tamil film Aparachith.
Manjrekar was a middle-order right-handed batsman for India, during his playing days. He could also play the role of a wicketkeeper, when needed. He made his international debut in 1987, against West Indies in Delhi.
Meanwhile, he last played for India in 1996, and his last match was against South Africa. After his retirement, the former cricketer has turned in a commentator and pundit.
