South Africa took on Pakistan in the third and final ODI at Super Sport Park in Centurion. The hard-fought series was won by Pakistan 2-1 courtesy of a superb all-round performance. Before the 3rd ODI, cricketer-turned-commentator Sanjay Manjrekar took to Twitter to give his views, but made a goof-up in his post regarding the series scoreline. However, he soon apologised to the South African team after his mistake.

Here is what actually happened:

Manjrekar commented on the SA vs PAK series from his Twitter handle. The veteran commentator praised Pakistan’s top performers in the series- skipper Babar Azam (103) in the first game and opener Fakhar Zaman (193) in the second ODI. However, he mentioned in his tweet that Pakistan had claimed two brilliant wins in the ongoing series. The 55-year-old later realised his mistake after being corrected by the fans that the series was level at 1-1 by then. He later issued an apology to the South African cricket team for “taking a win away from them”.

Here’s the tweet:
