Delhi Capitals head coach Ricky Ponting has promised to have a “hard conversation” with senior offspinner R Ashwin about running out batsmen backing up at the bowler’s end. Ponting was criticized during his playing days for being too arrogant and always trying to bend the cricket laws. Hence this came as a surprise that he is lecturing the World on spirit of cricket. The fauxy has learnt that Sanjay Manjrekar has been pretty impressed by Ponting and has started giving online classes on commentary.
Sanjay, as you know has been banned by the BCCI from doing commentary as his commentary had viewers get bored and complain about his arrogance when he gave Harsha a mouthful. But Manjrekar believes that if the world can accept Ponting’s Spirit of cricket lecture, they are also ready for commentary lessons from him.
