Former England skipper Michael Vaughan on Tuesday (July 9) has taken to his official Twitter handle, to reveal that Indian cricketer-turned-commentator Sanjay Manjrekar has blocked him. This came after their feud over the micro-blogging website on holding a different perspective regarding Ravindra Jadeja.

Earlier, Vaughan and Manjrekar were involved in a heated exchange after Manjrekar has called Jadeja a ‘bits-and-pieces player’.

However, in response, the all-rounder Jadeja had lashed out at Manjrekar.

In between the Twitter users had trolled the duo for deeming the duo as ‘annoying’.

Before conveying the message, Vaughan on his Twitter account maintained that Jadeja ‘can spit it.
However, the tweet took an ugly turn, which further saw Vaughan alleging Manjrekar of blocking him on Twitter.

Pertinently, Manjrekar faced criticised for backing Mumbai-based cricketers.

Earlier, Vaughan had responded to Manjrekar with ‘bits-and-pieces’ comment when the latter had predicted the playing XI following the India-Sri Lanka game.

However, Manjrekar was quick to respond that it was his ‘prediction’ and not ‘his team’.

Meanwhile, during the ongoing semi-final against New Zealand, Jadeja had bowled exceptionally well, which further read his figures of 34 for 1 in his quota of ten overs. Jadeja has cleaned up Henry Nicholls 28 (51).

As Jadeja’s bowl spun sharply early on, Vaughan has taken a dig at Manjrekar on Twitter.

Manjrekar has recently picked Jadeja for the semifinal clash which he further referred to as a ‘prediction’.

“BREAKING NEWS .. I have been blocked by @sanjaymanjrekar .. !!! #CWC19,” Vaughan tweeted.

Meanwhile, India is facing New Zealand in the first semi-final at the Edgbaston in Birmingham. Earlier, on Tuesday (July 9), Kane Williamson-led Black Caps won the toss and opted to bat first.

India has bowled remarkably well early on to tighten things up for the Black Caps.

Meanwhile, the rain had halted the game when Kiwis were 211 for five in 46.1 overs.

Interestingly, the Men in Blue bowlers have done an exceptional job, which further saw all five bowlers picking a wicket each.
