Mute Button for Manjrekar? OYO CEO Ritesh Agarwal Agrees To Invest In Vishal Dayama’s Idea

Indian Premier League (IPL) viewership goes beyond just the on-field action. The commentary panel plays a crucial role in setting the tone and enhancing the viewing experience. However, the style of one particular commentator, Sanjay Manjrekar, has become a source of debate among cricket fans.

A Tongue-in-Cheek Suggestion Goes Viral

Content creator Vishal Dayama, known for his wit, took to social media with a lighthearted solution to a perceived problem. He proposed an app that would mute Sanjay Manjrekar’s commentary specifically.  Dayama’s humorous post suggested the app would  “detect that sound and prevents it from reaching your ears.”

“hello sharks my idea is mute button but only for manjrekar, this app detects that sound and prevents it from reaching your ears”, Dayama wrote in his tweet. 

Sharks take Notice 

The proposition gained significant traction online, even catching the eye of Ritesh Agarwal, CEO of OYO and a judge on the popular TV show Shark Tank India.  Playing along with the joke, Agarwal replied, “You will get an offer, and the deal is confirmed. This is a huge opportunity.”

While the exchange was lighthearted, it highlighted the ongoing discussion surrounding Manjrekar’s commentary style.  Some viewers find his analysis insightful, while others criticize it as overly critical or lacking excitement. Agarwal later clarified his stance,  emphasizing the playful nature of the interaction: “BTW I actually do like Sanjay’s commentary and this is in good zest, like my friend said, bura na mano Holi hai” (Don’t feel offended, it’s Holi).

Is There a Middle Ground?

The “mute Manjrekar” proposition, though humorous, raises a valid point:  commentary styles can be subjective. What one viewer enjoys, another might find distracting.  While some may crave a more analytical approach, others might prefer a more enthusiastic style.

Perhaps the answer doesn’t lie in muting specific commentators, but in offering viewers more options.  Imagine a platform where fans could choose from a variety of commentary styles, catering to their individual preferences. This would allow viewers to personalize their IPL experience and ensure they enjoy the complete package – thrilling on-field action paired with commentary that enhances their viewing pleasure.
