New Delhi. Team India’s off-spinner R Ashwin has given a befitting reply to Sanjay Manjrekar on his tweet. Ashwin has posted a picture of Tamil film Enion on Twitter in which actor Vikram is telling his friend ‘Don’t say that, my heart is hurting.’ Ashwin has taunted Sanjay Manjrekar through the picture of this film. Let us tell you that Sanjay Manjrekar wrote in his tweet that he does not keep R Ashwin in the list of greatest bowlers of all time.
Sanjay Manjrekar wrote on Twitter, ‘The greatest of all time is the biggest compliment that is given to cricketers. Other cricketers like Don Bradman, Gary Sobers, Sunil Gavaskar, Sachin Tendulkar, Virat Kohli are included in my list. With all due respect, Ashwin is not in this list for me. After this tweet, the fans trolled Sanjay Manjrekar fiercely.
Manjrekar said – Ashwin does not take wickets in SENA countries
Sanjay Manjrekar said in a conversation with ESPN Cricinfo, ‘When people start calling Ashwin the greatest of all time, I object to this. Ashwin’s record is poor in South Africa, England, New Zealand and Australia, where he has not taken five wickets in an innings even once. Secondly, if you see him bowling on Indian pitches, Jadeja has also performed like him and Axar Patel has taken more wickets than Ashwin against England on the same pitches.
