Former India cricketer Sanjay Manjrekar, who's a TV commentator in the Indian Premier League (IPL), on Saturday clarified his on-air comments about Kieron Pollard.

Manjrekar denied rumours of calling the West Indian "brainless" during Mumbai Indians's match against Kolkata Knight Riders on April 9.

Manjrekar tweeted:

 

While it was clear from the footage that Manjrekar never uttered the word “brainless”, Pollard had thought that the Indian called him that.

So he had rebuked on Twitter: “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...

“u feel any positive can come out of your mouth bcuz u get pay to talk u can continue with your verbal diarrhea ...”
