India defeated New Zealand by 7 runs in the fifth and final T20I to register a memorable 5-0 whitewash over the hosts. Virat Kohli's men became the first side in the world to whitewash an opponent in a five-match T20I series. The Blackcaps were dominating the proceedings at one point, but similar to the previous two games, they threw away the match they had almost won.
Former India cricketer Sanjay Manjrekar lauded India's performance and Virat Kohli's leadership skills. Sanjay Manjrekar took to Twitter where he drew a comparison between Virat Kohli’s India and the yesteryears Pakistan side under the reign of the country's current Prime Minister Imran Khan. He said both instilled strong self-belief in the team. Sanjay Manjrekar also said that Pakistan under Imran Khan used to find different ways of winning matches, often from losing positions.
India under Virat in NZ reminds me of Pakistan under Imran. Strong self belief as a team. Pakistan under Imran found different ways of winning matches, often from losing positions. That only happens when the self belief is strong.— Sanjay Manjrekar (@sanjaymanjrekar) February 3, 2020
Sanjay Manjrekar was trolled by netizens for comparing the current Indian side with Imran Khan's Pakistan side. Twitterati roasted Sanjay Manjrekar and soon memes and comments started flooding the post. Let's have a look at a few reactions.
Comparing India with the West Indies of the 80/90's, OR with the Australian team of 2000's would have been the better benchmark!— Ali Bakrolwala (@Bakrolwala) February 3, 2020
