ICC World Cup 2019: Ravindra Jadeja Just Ripped Me Apart – Sanjay Manjrekar
Well, it seems like the cricketer-turned-analyst Sanjay Manjrekar has finally wanted to put an end gate for his “Bits and Pieces” Comment on Ravindra Jadeja. The former Indian opening batsman has admitted that his perception was wrong on the all-rounder, who almost did it for the Indian team.
Ravindra Jadeja walked out to bat when India had lost Hardik Pandya for 32 in the 31st over of their 240-run chase at Old Trafford on the reserve day of the World Cup 2019 semi-final after rain played spoilsport on Tuesday.
He joined MS Dhoni when India was reeling at 92 for 6 but the left-hander played with a lot of positive intent from the word go to keep India’s hopes alive. More often than not, he kept the scoreboard running in the middle overs to put New Zealanders on their toes.
By Bits And By Pieces, Ravindra Jadeja ripped me apart – Sanjay Manjrekar
With Dhoni taking the time in the middle, Jadeja did all the damage by walking down the pitch against both pacers and spinners. Jadeja was severe against left-arm spinner Mitchell Santner as he was comfortable dancing down the track and hitting him out of the park.
Though he couldn’t quite achieve the goal in the end, Jadeja smashed 77 crucial runs in the chase. And also, grabbed a brilliant run out and catch as well. After reaching 50, “Jaddu” appeared to taunt Sanjay Manjrekar in the commentary box, following comments made by the commentator suggesting he was a “bits and pieces” player.
Earlier, Sanjay Manjrekar said ”I am not a big fan of bits and pieces players which Jadeja is at this point of his career in 50-over cricket. In Test matches, he is a pure bowler. But in 50-over cricket, I would rather have a batsman and a spinner.”
However, he admitted that Ravindra Jadeja has ripped him apart with his performance in the semifinal game. Sanjay Manjrekar also spoke about the sword celebration after reaching the milestone.
Here is his version:
