A few days ago, veteran Indian commentator, Sanjay Manjrekar said that the all-rounder, Ravindra Jadeja is a ‘bits and pieces’ player. He also clarified that he doesn’t like the latter. The harsh words didn’t go down well with the all-rounder by any stretch of the imagination.

Jadeja put up a strict message, calling Manjrekar’s words as ‘verbal diarrhea’ and asked the veteran to respect someone. The all-rounder also reminded him of the stark difference in the number of times both have played for the country. Even as he got support from all quarters, Manjrekar faced a lot of heat from everywhere.

Michael Vaughan, the former England cricketer took a dig at Sanjay as well after Jadeja broke a crucial partnership to jolt New Zealand during the World Cup 2019 semi-final against India in Manchester. In the 19th over of the 1st match, Jadeja cleaned-up New Zealand opener Henry Nicholls. The ball sneaked through the gap between Nicholls’ bat and pad to crack the stumps as the all-rounder, broke the 68-run stand between Nicholls and skipper Kane Williamson.

Soon after Jadeja’s crucial breakthrough for India,  Vaughan took to Twitter to pull Manjrekar’s leg over his ‘bits and pieces’ comments on the Indian bowling-all rounder.

IPL franchise Chennai Super Kings also did not let go off the chance to troll Manjrekar.

A few hours after Vaughan’s dig at Manjrekar, the former English skipper announced that his fellow commentator has blocked him on Twitter. Michael tweeted: “BREAKING NEWS .. I have been blocked by @sanjaymanjrekar.. !!! #CWC19”.

Former England skipper got some support from fans as well. Here are some of the reactions:

Earlier, after winning the toss, the Kiwi skipper, Kane Williamson decided to bat first with one change in their squad as Lockie Ferguson came back in to replace Tim Southee. The Indian skipper, Virat Kohli also announced a change in the Indian squad as Yuzvendra Chahal replaced Ravindra Jadeja.
