New Delhi: Mumbai Indians all-rounder Kieron Pollard slammed former Indian cricketer Sanjay Manjrekar for calling him 'brainless' during Mumbai's second Indian Premier League match against Kolkata Knight Riders at the Wankhede Stadium on Sunday. (IPL 2017Full Coverage)

Pollard, who has been an integral part of the Rohit Sharma-led side, was dismissed for 17 when Mumbai needed 64 runs to win off the last 24 balls.

Soon after English all-rounder Chris Woakes got rid of the West Indian, Manjrekar said while commentating, "Pollard does not have the brains to play early in the innings."

Pollard was clearly unhappy with Manjrekar's remark as he tweeted, "@sanjaymanjrekar u feel any positive can come out of your mouth bcuz u get pay to talk u can continue with your verbal diarrhea .."

The 29-year-old didn't end there and slammed Manjrekar futher.

 

Pollard also got support in his compatriot Tino Best who also slammed Manjrekar for his insensitive comment.

It remains to be seen what would be Manjrekar's reply.

Mumbai, who have won one out of two matches so far in the tournament, will now take on defending champions Sunrisers Hyderabad at the Wankhede Stadium on April 12.
