Former India cricketer-turned commentator Sanjay Manjrekar has admitted that he is yet to master the art of expressing his thoughts on social media platforms.
During his latest question and answer session with ESPNCricinfo, Manjrekar was asked to reveal a few things he loves and hates about Twitter and Instagram.
At this, the 55-year-old has termed Twitter as a double-edged sword and highlighted that the micro-blogging platform didn’t serve him well on many occasions.
“Twitter is a double-edged sword. It has served me well at times and hasn’t served me well on many occasions. Now, at this stage, when you sort of balance it, I think it has done me more harm than good,” Manjrekar said.
Furthermore, the renowned Indian commentator asserted that he is still trying to figure out the dynamics of social media.
“Social media has been a beast that I have not been able to tame or understand. I’ve tried different techniques, but yeah still trying to understand the dynamics of it,” he added.
Recently, Manjrekar posted a controversial tweet, stating that the veteran India off-spinner Ravichandran Ashwin is not an all-time great in the longest format of the game.
Ashwin is the fourth-highest wicket-taker for India in Tests and has scalped 409 wickets in 78 matches so far.
Manjrekar’s statement didn’t go down well with the netizens and the commentator was criticized for his tweet.
