My timeline is flooded with people pummeling Sanjay Manjrekar for his partisan commentary in the #IPL2019Final. While he could control the urge to keep dissing someone or the other to feel good, should commentators mandatorily be neutral? A few thoughts on that:
@adikulk
Why do we need commentary at all when we understand the game? As Richie Benaud put it, the viewer is not an idiot and can see what's going on. If what you want to say does not add to the viewer's experience, shut the hell up!

Couldn't have captured it better. Most commentators these days think of themselves as a piece of the main dish rather than the condiments that enhance its flavour. TV commentary should always be supplement or add-on to what is going on, on the field

Lasith Malinga played an #IPL2019 match (#MIvCSK) till midnight.

He was there till the end, bowling full steam, taking 3/34.

At some point he took an international flight (immigration customs etc I suppose were fast-tracked).

He reached Kandy for a 9.45 AM start match.

Thankfully, his team (Galle) was asked to bat first.

Fully charged, he took first over for Galle, bowled unchanged for 9.5-0-49-7, and blew Kandy away for 99.

His wickets included Samarawickrama, Senanayake, Chaturanga, Thisara - all international cricketers.

2/n
I have left out three specialist international bowlers.

And cricketers - especially fast bowlers - complain about workload.

Remember, Slinga is 35, and on the last leg of his career.
