Sanjay Manjrekar Trolled For Advising Mumbai Indians From Commentary Box In IPL 2019 Final
Mumbai Indians and Chennai Super Kings (CSK) are facing each other in the final for the fourth time in the history of the IPL.
Sanjay Manjrekar advised Quinton de Kock to play cautiously
Sanjay Manjrekar's advise did not go down well with some fans
Fans alleged Sanjay Manjrekar of biasness on Twitter
Mumbai Indians opted to bat against Chennai Super Kings (CSK) in the high-octane Indian Premier League (IPL) 2019 final in Hyderabad on Sunday. Openers Quinton de Kock and Rohit Sharma gave Mumbai Indians a flying start in the IPL 2019 final and stared dealing in sixes from the beginning. Watching the fireworks by Mumbai Indians openers, even commentator Sanjay Manjrekar couldn't resist admiring the duo but ended up advising Quinton de Kock to be cautious against CSK bowlers in such a crucial match.
Manjrekar's advice for Mumbai Indians from the commentary box didn't get a positive response from the fans, who started trolling the former India batsman on Twitter.
Some fans even alleged Manjrekar of biasness towards Mumbai, a city he belongs to.
"@sanjaymanjrekar saying "Dont do it, Dont do it" to Quinton De Cock! Is he a commentator or @mipaltan coach?," asked a fan on Twitter.
Another one joined in, saying: "Why is a commentator @sanjaymanjrekar so biased in his commentary in favour of Mumbai Indians? He should sit in the stands and cheer his favourite team"

Mumbai Indians and CSK are facing each other in the final for the fourth time in the history of the IPL.
In 2010, CSK had defeated Mumbai Indians by 22 runs to clinch their maiden title.
In 2013, Mumbai Indians avenged their defeat and crushed CSK by 23 runs to win their first-ever IPL title. The Rohit Sharma-led added to their trophy cabinet by with an emphatic 41-run win over Dhoni's CSK in the 2015 edition of the IPL final.
Now, both Mumbai Indians and CSK eye an unprecedented fourth crown in the IPL.
