Aside from Team India’s semi-last annihilation on account of New Zealand; Sanjay Manjrekar’s questionable remarks stood out as truly newsworthy during the 2019/20 season. The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) at last made a move against the previous India batsman; and dropped him from the discourse board towards the finish of the period.

According to a report, Manjrekar has kept in touch with the load up and has vowed to ‘stick to the rules’. This is his second email to BCCI.
