Sanjay Manjrekar, commentator and former India cricketer, has been reportedly dropped from BCCI’s commentary team.

According to a report in Mumbai Mirror, a BCCI source has confirmed that Manjrekar has been excluded from India matches and might be dropped from the IPL commentary team 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 source as saying, adding that the cricketer was not available for a response.

Manjrekar had an eventful time in 2019, when he got into a controversy for having called all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja a bits-and-pieces player.

Chennai Super Kings, Jadeja’s IPL team, seemed to take a sly dig at Manjrekar’s ouster on Saturday.

There have been much speculation on why Manjrekar has been dropped from the BCCI commentary team.

Some fans have dug up an old tweet by BCCI President Sourav Ganguly, where the former India captain had criticized an unspecified commentator.

With cricket having been halted around the world in light of the coronavirus pandemic, it is unclear when Manjrekar can be heard on commentary once again.
