Nevertheless, he was quick to delete the tweet. However, active social media enthusiasts (one of them being former IPL chief Lalit Modi) were quick to grab a screenshot of the tweet and post it later in the day.
Manjrekar’s tweet which was addressed to IPL CEO Sunder Raman read: “Sundar, I have now been kicked off from studio for Ind / Aus by Star. Don’t you think this is a bit harsh. I have a contract with them”.
Later in the day, Manjrekar, once again on Twitter, admitted that one of his earlier tweets had created a buzz. He wrote: “A tweet that I deleted immediately has become a bit of a talking point. It was a segment of a private chat that erroneously got onto twitter.”
Manjrekar was part of the commentary team in the recently concluded Champions League T20 that was won convincingly by Mumbai Indians.
