India-New Zealand: Has Sanjay Manjrekar blocked Michael Vaughan on Twitter? Former English captain Michael Vaughan has accused cricketer-turned-commentator Sanjay Manjrekar of blocking him on Twitter. Vaughan had earlier taken a jib at Manjrekar for not picking Ravindra Jadeja in his playing XI after Jadeja scalped a big wicket during India’s match against Sri Lanka. Now, Jadeja has picked up another wicket in the ongoing semi-final 1 and Vaughan is now accusing Majrekar of blocking him. Vaughan’s tweet read, “BREAKING NEWS .. I have been blocked by @sanjaymanjrekar .. !!!”

“Ind could pick players specific to the pitch, boundaries & opposition. Get Kedar back in the playing XI & look at numbers of Indian spinners v NZ before picking them. Chahal – Avg 27.15, Eco – 5.11 Kuldeep – Avg – 21.00, Eco – 4.84 RA Jadeja – Avg – 73.00, Eco – 5.61,” read Manjrekar’s post.

India has also made one change to their playing XI which featured against Sri Lanka. Yuzvendra Chahal has been included in place of Kuldeep Yadav.

At the time of filing the copy, the Kiwi’s were reeling at 211/5 in 46.1 overs. Williamson top-scored with 67 off 95 balls.
