Sanjay Manjrekar has been earning a lot of haters during his commentary stint. He is trolled for his views, called biased for his opinions. He has been taking on players as well.
Recently, he said that Ravindra Jadeja is a “bits and pieces” cricketer and he is not a fan for him.
“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.
Jadeja had hit back at Manjrekar, telling that he heard enough of his “verbal diarrhoea”
He said in a tweet: 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
