Manjrekar’s Latest Comments On Ravichandran Ashwin

Sanjay Manjrekar brought into notice on Twitter that he feels Ravichandran Ashwin is still isn’t part of the all-time greats yet in his book. He mentioned few examples of all-time greats like Don Bradman, Gary Sobers, Sachin Tendulkar, and this wasn’t taken well on social media.

“All-time great is the highest praise & acknowledgment given to a cricketer. Cricketers like Don Bradman, Sobers, Gavaskar, Tendulkar, Virat, etc are all-time greats in my book. With due respect, Ashwin not quite there as an all-time great yet,” Manjrekar had tweeted on June 6
