When the fan asked Sanjay Manjrekar about why he hasn't considered joining the support staff, he responded by saying -
"Is job mein filhaal bahut khush hoon" (I am happy in this job for now).
The calls for a change in the Indian cricket team's coaching setup have been doing the rounds for quite some time now, and it has been further enhanced after the debacle at Adelaide.

Sanjay Manjrekar's advice for the Indian batsmen ahead of the 2nd Test against Australia
Sanjay Manjrekar had a small piece of advice for the Indian batsmen on what they could work on during the break between the Tests. As per his Tweet, Manjrekar seemed to suggest that the Indian batsmen must work on their feet movement by playing a 'million balls'. He also added that this was the basic 'Riyaz' for defensive Test batting.
India will be hoping for a better performance from their batsmen in the second Test at MCG that begins on Boxing Day. With skipper Virat Kohli having flown back to India to attend the birth of his first child, and seamer Mohammad Shami ruled out with a fracture, India can be expected to make quite a few changes to the playing XI.Published 25 Dec 2020, 10:00 IST
