The legend of the West Indies Curtly Ambrose he stated Sanjay Manjrekar has the right to have his views on Team India off-spinner Ravichandran Ashwin. According to Ambrose, each person looks at size through a different prism.
Manjrekar recently found himself in the middle of a controversy after revealing that he does not rate Ravichandran Ashwin as an all-time great. Manjrekar led Ashwin’s average record in SENA countries (South Africa, England, New Zealand, Australia) to highlight his position.
Ambrose shared his views on Manjrekar’s comments on the Curtly & Karishma show. The former bowler of fast west India said:
“We all have different opinions. We all look at size in different ways. Sanjay Manjrekar was a wonderful cricketer in his time. He has his own opinion on it, we all have our views. But how do you define size? That’s a good question. “
Curtly Ambrose added:
“Because sometimes, to be completely honest, we loosely use the word size. So we have to be careful with how we define size. In my opinion, size is when a player can be very consistent over a period of time, years, not one or two years.”
Ambrose added that players can be judged better at the end of their careers, unlike when they are still playing. Developed by:
“Some guys can get into international cricket and set the world on fire for two or three years. And for the next six to seven years they do nothing. You can’t really judge in the first two or three years. It went through a certain amount of time, throughout his entire career. At the end of your career, you may be judged on whether you were great or good or average. “
How Ravichandran Ashwin reacted to Sanjay Manjrekar’s assessment
After Sanjay Manjrekar’s comments on Ravichandran Ashwin created a fever on social media, the commentator clarified his comments on Twitter. He wrote:
“Top value is the greatest praise and recognition for a cricket player. Cricketers like Don Bradman, Sobers, Gavaskar, Tendulkar, Virat, etc., are great times in my book. With all due respect, Ashwin is still not there as a great player of all time. #AllTimeGreatExplained. ”
Ravichandran Ashwin had an easy response to Manjrekar’s tweet. He responded with a familiar dialogue from the Tamil film ‘Aparachith’. The dialogue read:
“Apdi Solladha Da Chaari, Manasellam Valikirdhu.” (Don’t say things like that, it hurts.)
Ravichandran Ashwin picked up 409 tickets from 78 tests averaging 24.69, including 30 five fors and seven 10-wicket matches.
