Indian all rounder Ravindra Jadeja has lashed out at commentator Sanjay Manjrekar after the latter had said that he was not a fan of bits and pieces player like him.
Jadeja took to Twitter and slammed the commentator for his ‘disrespectful’ remarks.
Still i have played twice the number of matches you have played and i m still playing. Learn to respect ppl who have achieved.i have heard enough of your verbal diarrhoea.@sanjaymanjrekar— Ravindrasinh jadeja (@imjadeja) July 3, 2019
Following India’s loss to England, experts had suggested that Jadeja be brought into the team. But Manjrekar hadn’t found the idea too appealing.
According to Hindustan Times, he had 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-over cricket, I would rather have a batsman and a spinner.
Jadeja is yet to play in a single game at the World Cup. That being said, he has featured as a substitute fielder in a few games. He even took a brilliant catch of Jason Roy against England.
