Former Indian cricketer and commentator Sanjay Manjrekar has been shown the way out of the Board of Control for Cricket in India. In addition to commenting on India’s defeat in the ICC ODI World Cup 2019 semifinals, Sanjay Manjrekar was in the news for his controversial remarks in 2012-2016. The BCCI took action against him and removed him from the commentary panel before the India-South Africa ODI series in March this year. Without the board officially confirming, Manjrekar was not on the commentary panel for the Dharamsala ODI against South Africa. It has become clear that they have been removed. Sanjay Manjrekar, 55, is returning to the IPL 2020 commentary panel.
According to a Times of India report, Sanjay Manjrekar has written a letter to the board and promised that he will follow all the guidelines from now on. This is the second email written by BCCI.

Sanjay Manjrekar wrote in the email, “Honorable members of BCCI, I hope you are all well. You have already received my email so that I can write about my position as a commentator. IPL date has been announced. In such a situation BCCTV will now select the commentary panel. I will be happy to work accordingly. We are working on your needs. Last time there was probably no clarity about this issue. Thank you.
In fact, Sanjay Manjrekar came into controversy by calling Indian all-rounder Rabindra Jadeja a ‘beats and pieces’ player. In his remarks, Jadeja became very angry and attacked Manjrekar. Following Manjerekar’s comments, Jadeja also tweeted and targeted him. Manjrekar then questioned Harsh Vogle during the pink ball Test match between India and Bangladesh, after which he faced a lot of criticism. But then he apologized.

Manjerkar has twice mailed to the BCCI. Now it remains to be seen whether the BCCI will include him in the commentary panel. The Times of India also reported that Sunil Gavaskar would be heading to the United Arab Emirates to take charge of the commentary. However, due to the corona virus epidemic, the government has advised senior citizens and children to stay at home.
