Accepting that he has been proved wrong former India cricketer turned commentator Sanjay Manjrekar, has said that Ravindra Jadeja a ‘bits and pieces cricketer’ has proved him wrong in all fronts as India had semifinal exit from the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019
In the first semifinal of the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 against New Zealand, Jadeja played a blinder of an innings in a lost cause and Manjrekar, who was critical of the all-rounder, accepted that he was taken aback by the performance.
“By bits and pieces, he has completely ripped me apart today. By sheer brilliance, he has proved me wrong on all fronts. But this is not the Ravindra Jadeja we have seen very often,” Manjrekar was quoted as saying to ICC media.
“In the last 40 innings, his highest score has been around 33. But, today he was brilliant. Economical with the ball and the familiar celebration you see more in Test matches with him,” Manjrekar added..
Earlier, Manjrekar was critical of Jadeja and in an interview said that he was ‘not a bi fan of bits and pieces players like Jadeja.’
Jadeja on his part didn’t take the criticism lightly and in a tweet said that he has played twice the number of matches than Manjrekar.
