ICC World Cup 2019: Sanjay Manjrekar Tweets After Ravindra Jadeja’s Brilliant 77
What a knock it was from Ravindra Jadeja against New Zealand side in the semifinal? He almost pulled it out for the team proving that he is not a bits and pieces cricketer. Meanwhile, Sanjay Manjrekar takes to Twitter to applaud the knock he played for the Indian National Cricket 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.
Jadeja 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.

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.
Jadeja and Dhoni kept putting pressure on the New Zealand fielders as the two kept stealing the extra run whenever possible.
Jadeja and Dhoni added 106-runs for the 7th wicket and took India closer to New Zealand’s total. Jadeja perished for 77 from 59 balls, hitting 4 sixes and as many boundaries. Jadeja tried to hit a big one in the 48th over against Boult and got caught in the deep.
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.”
”Well played Jadeja,” Sanjay Manjrekar tweeted after the knock from Ravindra Jadeja.
Well played Jadeja! 😉
