India all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja on Wednesday said “learn to respect people” while replying to former cricketer Sanjay Manjrekar‘s remarks. Manjrekar told media that he is not a big fan of bits and pieces players like Jadeja. The statement did not go well with the all-rounder and Jadeja in a tweet said he has played twice the number of matches than Manjrekar. “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,” Jadeja tweeted.
Despite being named in India’s 15-man squad, Jadeja has not played a single match in the ongoing World Cup. He has come in as a substitute fielder couple of times and made headlines for taking a brilliant catch of England batsman Jason Roy on June 30. India booked its semi-finals berth on July 2 after beating Bangladesh. The Men in Blue will take on Sri Lanka on July 6 at Leeds.
