Angry Pollard slams Manjrekar for on-air comments

Kieron PollardMumbai Indians batsman Kieron Pollard has slammed Sanjay Manjrekar for his on-air comments about his batting during the Indian Premier League match against Kolkata Knight Riders in Mumbai on Sunday, saying that the former India player suffers from "verbal diarrhoea".

Pollard was dismissed for a run-a-ball 17, leaving Mumbai Indians at a precarious 119 for five with less than four overs to go in his team's chase of 179. In the commentary box, Manjrekar had criticised Pollard, saying that he was only good enough to bat for the last six or seven overs of an innings.

Manjrekar was responding to a fellow commentator's query about what Pollard's ideal position in the batting order should be.

Pollard responded angrily to Manjrekar's criticism in a series of tweets.

"@sanjaymanjrekar u feel any positive can come out of your mouth bcuz u get pay to talk u can continue with your verbal diarrhea (diarrhoea)..," Pollard said in his first tweet.

"Do you know how I get big so.. about BRAINLESS.. words are very powerful .. once it leaves u can't take it back.. sins of parents fall on...," he said in another tweet.
