Sanjay Manjrekar has commented on the captaincy of Rishabh Pant and Sanju Samson at the IPL 2021
How Sanjay Manjrekar continues to be accorded with a public platform to air his bemusing opinions is something which remains one of the biggest mystery of the current era.
Over the years, the cricketer turned commentator has offered some of the most hilarious and comical views on cricketers and developments in the world of cricket. And despite being asked to shut his tirade by a string of players, Manjrekar’s decadent personality and thirst for staying in the controversy has seen him continue his diatribe.
Sanjay Manjrekar Would Never Make Rishabh Pant Or Sanju Samson The Captain
Manjrekar has now come up with his expert analysis on the young Indian captains in the Indian Premier League with him talking about how he would never given the starlets the charge of a team. He has gone onto question why young guns like Shreyas Iyer, Rishabh Pant and Sanju Samson were asked to lead teams with him saying expert captains are only capable of winning matches.
“The two teams that have reached the finals have been led by two seasoned captains – Morgan and Mahendra Singh Dhoni.
I just wonder when you are looking at T20 specialist bowlers and batters and all-rounders, I think it’s time for us to also start looking for T20 specialist captains, you know, great T20 captains. It’s beyond me how T20 captaincy is given to a young Rishabh Pant, [he’s] still young cricket wise, young Shreyas Iyer or Sanju Samson,” said Sanjay Manjrekar.
Delhi ended up making the final of IPL 2020 under the captaincy of Shreyas Iyer last season while the side topped the league stages of IPL 2021 with Rishabh Pant as captain.
