KP & Manjrekar's mixed thoughts about Kesrick Williams

It had all started when Sanjay Manjrekar had recommended Kesrick Williams' name in the recently concluded IPL Auctions. He had urged that one must go for Kesrick Williams as he reckoned that the Caribbean cricketer is perfect for IPL conditions.

Kevin Pietersen was not on the same page with the veteran commentator and after having read his tweet, the ex- English cricketer wrote that he completely disagreed with the former Mumbai batsman and added that Kesrick Williams is not good enough and has nothing special apart from his celebration.

Kesrick Williams' name was put up in the IPL 2020 Auctions at a base price of Rs.50 lakh. Unfortunately, none of the teams showed any interest in him and he went unsold whereas, some of his Caribbean team-mates were brought for a huge amount by a couple of franchises.
