Amazing win for India. They did it despite Manjrekar's commentary. #WCC2017 #INDvAUS
Retweeted by Anand RanganathanWorld Cup Final, Sunday, July 23, 2017, Lord's. India Vs England + ManjrekarIndia 1 : Manjrekar 0No, you sad git, she can't. YES!!Manjrekar (whispers): Can she (Blackwell) do it?Hate this rascal. I thought the match was dead & buried. Now his enthusiastic support for the Aussies has set me thinking. What a nutter.The last thing one wants when India is playing badly, is Sanjay Manjrekar commentating. The man rubs it in till the salt reaches the bone.
Retweeted by Anand RanganathanThe only thing worse than Manjrekar in the commentary box, is Manjrekar at the crease.
Retweeted by Anand RanganathanYou know the cricketing moments where you shout: DON'T cough or twitch? Those moments are when Manjrekar breaks into a coughing fit & a jig.
Retweeted by Anand Ranganathan @ARanganathan72 He just said 12 overs left. Can he be booked for sedition?
Retweeted by Anand Ranganathan55 required by Aussies off 4 overs, 1 wicket left. Manjrekar: Tell you what, there are some nervous Indian faces in the dugout.Haha, I too noticed that. What a man. are dying, and Manjrekar is giving them CPR.Hence the delay in getting to the finish.

Retweeted by Anand RanganathanPromise. Won't tweet on any news item tomorrow, good or bad. Not until I fully digest the two crows flapping inside… Apologies. Thanks for this, @IndiaToday. Come, let us tuck into this together. Beak side up.[Personally, I am not enamoured by asking shops to cover their meat displays along the Kawariya route, but that's minor, understandable.]Update: Whatever it was, wasn't a ban; and certainly not leading to non-availability of meat or eggs for a week.’s developmental deficit can be attributed to @laluprasadrjd & the anarchic governance, argues @anandvardhan26

Sensational.Analysis of the Paranjoy Guha Thakurta affair by the fact-checking portal @the_truepicture. Do read. cc: @sriram_ET "Australia are the clear favourites here." Me: C'mon, ladies. More than winning it for India, win it to prove this man wrong.Was looking forward to watching the #WomensWorldCup #AUSvIND, when a familiar squeak reached my ears. So Manjrekar has sneaked in here, tooCongratulations, President Kovind. don't make me eat crow again so soon; the last one has barely been digested. Damn it, @IndiaToday. you ask someone to grin and bear it, you are the one grinning and he is the one bearing it.Rarely, if at all, does one come across a fellow-Indian who doesn't believe in, or doesn't propagate, Social Darwinism. A fact to live with.This is TOTALLY unacceptable. The SHO, Ram Sen Singh should be suspended. If we still are in a democracy, that is.… fastest way to end suffering in this country is to make our politicians suffer it.
