Tennis star Sania Mirza and former cricketer Sanjay Manjrekar got into a Twitter spat on Wednesday after her 80-week stay at the top of tennis rankings confused the former Indian cricketer.
On Tuesday, Sania posted: "Today I complete 80 consecutive weeks as the number 1 player in d world. its been an amazing journey and just inspires me to work harder[sic]," on her Twitter handle.
While several sportspersons congratulated Sania, here's how former Indian cricketer Sanjay Manjrekar reacted to her tweet: "No 1 doubles player you mean. Congrats!"
Sania was quick to replying: "Since I don't play singles anymore isn't that obvious/common sense? my bad, common sense is not that common after all I guess.. :) [sic]" She also didn't forget to thank him for wishing her. "Hey.. But thanks for your wishes though of course [sic]."
Sanjay clearly defeated reply: "Well, you missed out an important detail for someone like me who lacks," Sania shared an article published on the website of the World Tennis Association that gives important details on her achievement. "Clearly!!! So here you go http://www.wtatennis.com/news/article/5989813/title/sania-mirza-hits-80-consecutive-weeks-at-world-no1 ... .. An article with all the 'important details' .. :) [sic]," Sania replied.
Sanjay ended the argument with: "Yes, the article also says No. 1 doubles player in the world. Said what I had to, will leave all balls outside the off stump alone now [sic]."
