Bloody hell, bits and pieces can spin it: Michael Vaughan trolls Sanjay Manjrekar over Ravindra Jadeja comment

first_imgFormer 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.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.Bloody hell Bits & Piece can Spin it …. #CWC19Michael Vaughan (@MichaelVaughan) July 9, 2019IPL franchise Chennai Super Kings also did not let go off the chance to troll Manjrekar.Quadrennial ExaminationFill in with suitable idioms/phrasesQuestion #8That partnership was broken into ____ & ______. @imjadeja #SirJaddu #WhistleForIndia #INDvNZ #SemiFinal1 #CWC19Chennai Super Kings (@ChennaiIPL) July 9, 2019A 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.Ravindra Jadeja was far from impressed with Manjrekar’s analysis and took to Twitter to say that he has had enough of Manjrekar’s ‘verbal diarrhoea’.advertisementStill i have played twice the number of matches you have played and i m still playing.
