Former India cricketer Yograj Singh, who’s the father of Yuvraj Singh, has blasted cricketer-turned-commentator Sanjay Manjrekar for his recent ‘bits and pieces’ comments regarding Team India’s all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja.

In the recent past, Manjrekar had faced criticism for taking sides of Mumbai-based players. He had recently made a statement by saying he doesn’t like ‘bits and pieces’ players after Jadeja had failed to make it to the playing XI for the World Cup.

Pertinently, he had featured in two matches at the ICC World Cup. Jadeja returned home after scoring 77 apart from two scalps in the ODI showpiece.

In the semis against Kiwis, Jadeja had conceded 34 runs in his quota of 10 overs. He has bagged a prized scalp of Henry Nicholls. He has also affected a run out of Ross Taylor 74 (90).

Ahead of the Sri Lanka game, Manjrekar maintained that Jadeja should not feature in the line-up.

However, later on, Manjrekar took to his official Twitter handle to name Jadeja in India’s semi-final playing XI.

Interestingly, following a solid show from Jadeja, Michael Vaughan has taken a sublime dig at Manjrekar by questioning former’s ‘bits and comments’.

Meanwhile, the 61-year-old Yograj had lashed out at Manjrekar by terming he should be ashamed of using such words.


 “I want to ask Sanjay Manjrekar – you have played for India. Don’t you feel ashamed to use words like these? MS Dhoni is playing slow. Because he has aged. Make him play at number four. The words you have used for Jadeja and Dhoni do not suit you,” Yograj told NNIS Sports.

THe concluded by saying such word don’t suit a player who had represented India at the highest level.

“You have played for India. You are son of Manjrekar Sir who played so many games for India. These words don’t suit you,” Yograj concluded.

The 54-year-old Manjrekar had represented India between 1985 and 1996. Besides, he had featured in 74 ODIs and 37 Tests for India.
