Former Indian cricketer and commentator Sanjay Manjrekar has recently been in the news for his fire-spitting remarks against Virat Kohli following India's historic T20 World Cup 2024 victory in Barbados.

For the unknown, Manjrekar's fiery criticism of Kohli was sparked by the 'controversial' decision to award him the Man of the Match in the T20 World Cup finale against South Africa. 

He argued that Kohli's knock did not allow 'devastating' Hardik Pandya to play more balls and that the award should have gone to the bowlers who saved the game.

Kohli's 76 off 59 helped India revive their innings and navigate through a callous point in the game after a massive fall-out at the beginning that led to the loss of Rohit Sharma and Rishabh Pant way too early.

Recently, a Pakistani journalist called out Manjrekar by taunting that the sole reason why he criticises Kohli is because he failed to get a picture with famous Bollywood actress and Kohli's wife, Anushka Sharma. (from 4:50 onwards)

Despite Virat Kohli's struggle during the tournament, his knock in the finals underscored the crucial role he played. His performance was not just necessary, but pivotal for India's victory. 

He anchored the innings at a crucial stage of the game, a feat that cannot be overlooked. Without his contribution, India might not have clinched the coveted trophy, as there wouldn't have been any runs for the Indian bowlers to defend in the first place.
