Commentator and former cricketer Sanjay Manjrekar was trolled on social media for calling Ravidra Jadeja as ‘bits and pieces’ cricketer.
Former England captain Michael Vaughan on Tuesday once again took a dig at crickter-turned commentator Sanjay Manjrekar after India all-rounder Ravindra Jaedeja broke a crucial partnership to jolt New Zealand during the World Cup 2019 semi-final against India in Manchester. Soon after, the social media were flooded with trolls against Sanjay Manjrekar not only by Ravindra Jadeja fans but cricket lovers.
In the 19th over of the 1st semi-final of the 2019 World Cup, left-arm spinner Ravindra Jadeja snared New Zealand opener Henry Nicholls. The ball sneaked through Nicholls' bat and pad to crack the stumps as Jadeja broke the 68-run stand between Nicholls and skipper Kane Williamson.
Soon after Jadeja's crucial breakthrough for India, Michael Vaughan took to Twitter to pull Manjrekar's leg over his 'bits and pieces' comments on the Indian bowling-all rounder. A few days back, Manjrekar had called Jadeja a bits and pieces cricketer.
"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-over cricket, I would rather have a batsman and a spinner," Manjrekar had said.
Taking to Twitter, Ravindra Jadeja retorted that he has had enough of Manjrekar's 'verbal diarrhoea'.
