Former Indian cricketer and defending commentator Sanjay Manjrekar is back in the news. Manjrekar, who frequently comments on players, recently launched a new debate by refusing to consider off-spinner R Ashwin as the greatest bowler. He was later criticized on social media for his comments. Now he has once again made a controversial statement in which he is mocking Team India star spinner Ravindra Jadeja.
I didn’t want to share this personal chat publicly, even if it was complete. But couldn’t help, coz ppl need to know this side of the man. @imjadeja He is proud of what he did to prove you wrong. @BCCI Is there someone you want in your com panel in the future? pic.twitter.com/AUjX301Foz

R Ashwin tweeted about suspending Ally Robinson, then Wasim Jaffer joked
In fact a user named Suryanarayan posted his chat on his Twitter account, in which Sanjay Manjrekar joked that Ravindra Jadeja did not know English. Let us tell you that this thing started when Suryanarayan called Sanjay Manjrekar’s statement about Ashwin as garbage. He said Manjrekar wants to be in the headlines only through absurdity, and Manjrekar is not at 10 per cent compared to Ashwin.
“You cannot be a Shoaib Akhtar directly from Bhubaneswar Kumar,” Irfan Pathan said
In reply to his tweet personally, Manjrekar wrote, “You cannot say anything about me, for you are not 1 per cent of me.” The user then gave Jadeja’s example to Manjrekar and said Jadeja gave you a good answer. As soon as Manjrekar was angry at this, he replied angrily, ‘You expect me to worship players like you. I am not a fan, I am an analyst and Ravindra Jadeja does not know English, so he did not even know what I was saying to him (bits and pieces cricketer) and someone should have told him the meaning of the verbal diarrhea. ‘Let us tell you that Manjrekar called Jadeja a little and a piece (playing to pieces) during the 2019 World Cup.
