Vaughan has been considering it as a friendly banter and asked Manjrekar to unblock him, but extended the duel further with a hilarious meme out of Yuzvendra Chahal’s picture that went viral last week. On his post on Instagram, Vaughan captioned, “Come on Sanjay unblock me on Twitter … It’s only Bantz … !!!!”

The picture of Chahal resting along the boundary was doing rounds on the internet after India’s last World Cup 2019 league stage match against Sri Lanka in Leeds. The meme shared by Vaughan has Manjrekar’s face edited in place of Chahal’s and the fans can’t stop laughing.

On Tuesday, Vaughan had tweeted: “BREAKING NEWS .. I have been blocked by @sanjaymanjrekar .. !!! #CWC19 (sic).”

The 44-year-old later added his “life is now sorted” after being blocked by Manjrekar.

Jadeja and Manjrekar have been one of the talking topics on various social media platform after the latter called the Indian all-rounder a “bits and pieces” cricketer. This did not go down well with Jadeja as he asked the commentator to respect players.

In an interview with IANS, Manjrekar said, “I am not a big fan of bits and pieces players which Jadeja is at this point of his career in 50-over cricket. In Test matches, he is a pure bowler. But in 50-overs cricket, I would rather have a batsman and a spinner.”

Reacting to the comments, Jadeja had tweeted: “Still I have played twice the number of matches you have played and I’m still playing. Learn to respect people who have achieved. I have heard enough of your verbal diarrhea Sanjay Manjrekar.”

However, Manjrekar was quick to change his opinion on July 6 during the India-Sri Lanka game in which Jadeja featured, calling him a “street-smart” cricketer.
