Surprisingly, in his squad Ravindra Jadeja found a place. It triggered a lot of speculation on social media as the former cricketer had earlier termed Jadeja as “bits and pieces cricketer” and had said he should not be picked. Michale Vaughan was quick to take a dig at the Indian commentator as he replied a tweet and raged a twitter-war. The tweet read, “I see you have picked that bits and pieces cricketer!!!”.
Manjrekar being Manjrekar was quick on his fingers again and replied to the former English cricketer by saying, “‘Predicted’ my dear Vaughan…not ‘my’ team”.
Michale Vaughan followed it with another reply and asked Manjrekar, “What’s your team then my dear Sanjay !! Are you picking any bits & pieces cricketer?”.
This conversation between the two former circketers led to a huge fuss on Twitter and the fans also joined to pour in their comments. India face New Zealand at the Emirates Old Trafford, Manchester in the first semi-final of the ongoing World cup on Tuesday.
