Sanjay Manjrekar: What he said, really meant and definitely did not
Sanjay Manjrekar Finds Test Centuries Easier To Get Than a No. 11
What he said:
“Courtney found it a little more difficult than me, but trust me Test centuries are not easy to get.”
Former India batsman, Sanjay Manjrekar, taking a playful dig at fellow commentator, Courtney Walsh, points out that Test tons are not facile.
Sachin Tendulkar missed out on his 100th international hundred once more in the first Test against West Indies at the Ferozeshah Kotla.
Tendulkar has not scored a ton in his last five Tests; he averages one in three.
What Manjrekar really meant:
“Courtney made it a lot more difficult—for most.”
What Manjrekar definitely didn’t:
“Courtney was the best night-watchman you could wish for.”
