Ever since Sanjay Manjrekar’s “bits and items cricketer” touch upon Ravindra Jadeja, the previous India batter usually finds himself on the finish of some jokes every time the star all-rounder performs properly. To Manjrekar’s credit score, he himself takes it on the chin and even requested Jadeja after India’s win over Pakistan within the Asia Cup on Sunday if he was “okay” to speak to him. Jadeja too laughed in response and mentioned he had no downside, with each of them seemingly having put the episode behind them.
Nevertheless, Manjrekar’s fellow presenter Mayanti Langer was maybe not executed with the jokes simply but.
Earlier than the beginning of Afghanistan’s match towards Bangladesh on Tuesday, Manjrekar, Langer and Scott Styris had been discussing the India-Pakistan match and the subject of gradual over charge got here up.
Each India and Pakistan had been penalised for sustaining a gradual over-rate within the match on Sunday and each groups needed to deliver an additional fielder contained in the 30-yard circle in the previous few overs as a result of new ICC rule.
“We have now seen that lots of spinners do not wish to bowl within the demise as it’s. Even the good Rashid Khan is not a giant fan of it. Now you probably have one much less fielder to guard, it means he has to vary his whole technique on the strains he has to bowl specifically. Groups attempt to shield one facet of the boundary fairly than have splits of two and two on the boundaries on both facet. So these are the changes that need to be made and therefore they need to get their spinners executed a little bit earlier now,” Styris opined on the matter.
He was speaking on the backdrop of Pakistan saving left-arm spinner Mohammad Nawaz for the ultimate over – a transfer which didn’t repay for them.
Manjrekar, nevertheless, had a less complicated suggestion to groups to take care of the gradual over charge concern.
“I’ve a really fast resolution and a quite simple tactic. Simply bowl your overs faster,” he quipped.
That is when Mayanti Langer chipped in with a hilarious interjection.
“Sanjay, not everyone seems to be Ravindra Jadeja,” she mentioned earlier than breaking into laughter and including “I needed to do it.”
Manjrekar, shocked at first by the remark, was fast to answer, saying “good one”.

Jadeja, after all, is thought for bowling his overs fairly shortly.
