Australia’s wicket-keeper batswoman Alyssa Healey gave a befitting reply to former Indian cricketer Sanjay Manjrekar’s take on the Aussie women’s cricket team on social media.

The cricketer-turned-commentator Sanjay Manjrekar has once again come under Twitterati’s radar for opening his mouth.

On Wednesday, Manjerakar posted on Twitter, wherein he took on the Australian women’s cricket team and it didn’t go down well with the Twitterati.

“Will never forget a sight that made me quite angry at that time,” Manjrekar started out in his post.

“Harmanpreet Kaur had just played one of the all time great innings of 171 n.o in the Women’s World Cup semi final in England last year.”

“At the end of the innings, not one Australian player waited for Kaur to leave the field first. Forget applause, there was not even an acknowledgement of one of the greatest performances seen in women’s cricket.”

“Instead, the Aussie women were sen walking away like an army battalion whose pride had been hurt and could not wait to get back on the front & teach the ‘enemy’ a lesson.”

“As it turned out, Australia lost that game easily.”

“Australian players for some reason are convinced that showing grace on the field makes them weaker as opponents, when actually there is no connection between the two, as it was seen in this Women’s game,” Manjrekar concluded his post.

 

Responding to his Tweet, Alyssa Healy, the wife of current Aussie pace Mitchell Starc, wrote: “This makes me really mad. Completely unfair and very poorly timed. Why are you trying to drag our game down as well? Happy to discuss this with you in person instead of you just throwing these comments out there.”

 

Not just Healey, but Manjrekar’s post upset many cricket fans including Indians.

Here is how Twitter reacted to his rant:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Australia men’s cricket team is in the eye of a storm over the ball-tampering scandal. Former skipper Steve Smith accepted that they tampered the ball during the third day of the third Test against South Africa.
