Exclusive: Muttiah Muralitharan slams Sanjay Manjrekar’s comments on Kieron Pollard

Posted on by

first_imgKieron Pollard is a angry man these days, smarting from Sanjay Manjrekar’s criticism highlighting his batting limitations. The big hitting Mumbai Indians batting star would be happy to know he has found support from Sri Lankan legend and Sunrisers Hyderabad bowling coach Muttiah Muralitharan.Speaking to India Today, Muralitharan chose to play players’ advocate and slammed Manjrekar’s comments made on air. “I think it is about both parties; not just Pollard or even Sanjay Manjrekar. He should also not have commented in public that he is not suited to bat in the top order. It is criticism. It should not be done openly. He has got (nearly) 7000 runs in the T20 format of the game. So how can someone who has got all these runs not fit in the top order? These are harsh words and his opinion. And the player can respond in his way,” he said.

Pollard came into bat at no.6 and struggled to a run-a-ball 17 in the game before Hardik Pandya took the team home with a quickfire knock.Pollard did not take Manjrekar’s comments kindly and took to twitter to have a go at the Former India batsman. “@sanjaymanjrekar u feel any positive can come out of your mouth bcuz u get pay to talk u can continue with your verbal diarrhea…”advertisementPollard took particular exception to Manjrekar’s remarks. He ranted on, “Do you know how I get big so..about BRAINLESS..words are very powerful…once it leaves u can’t take it back.. sins of parents fall on…”While the casual observer on social media has egged Pollard on following his offensive against Manjrekar, some in the Indian cricket community have been critical of Pollard’s language and defended Manjrekar’s right to comment objectively.Muralitharan prefers to marvel at Pollard’s T20 track record and backs his right to defend his case. “He can say I am good enough I have (nearly) 7000 runs and I have played 10-15 years of T20 cricket. I am one of the most important players in Mumbai Indians set up. Players also get hurt. The way you comment is also most important. When you play a bad shot criticism is fine but these were unfair comments. If Sanjay has given his word, player can counter attack him because he has done it and show his performance,” he opined.Manjrekar who has in the past not been shy of engaging in social media confrontations with public figures has so far chosen to stay silent on the matter.last_img read more

NCP MLA meets Thackeray amid rumours of joining Sena

Posted on by

first_imgMumbai: Amid speculations that he may quit the NCP, party MLA Avadhut Tatkare on Thursday met Shiv Sena president Uddhav Thackeray here and said he wants to stay in “mainstream politics”. Rumours have been doing the rounds that the MLA, who represents Shrivardhan Assembly seat in Maharashtra’s Raigad district, and his uncle and NCP MP Sunil Tatkare may join the Shiv Sena, which is an ally of the ruling BJP in the state and at the Centre. Sunil Tatkare, the Lok Sabha member from Raigad constituency, earlier denied the rumours.

I will announce my official decision in next two days,” Avadhut Tatkare told reporters here. Asked if he would part ways with his uncle, he said, “I would take a decision after consultation with my party workers and close aides. I need some time to make a statement on the same. I cannot confirm anything but I want to stay in mainstream politics and as part of it, I met Thackeray.” Several senior leaders from the opposition NCP and Congress have recently joined the ruling BJP and Shiv Sena in the state, where the Assembly polls are due in September- October. Six-time legislator Dilip Sopal earlier this week resigned from the Sharad Pawar-led party and joined the Shiv Sena on Wednesday.last_img read more
