Ravindra Jadeja's 'Bits & Pieces' Brilliance Ripped Me Apart: Sanjay Manjrekar

Ravindra Jadeja almost single-handedly took India to victory against New Zealand in the ICC World Cup semi-final.

Ravindra Jadeja almost single-handedly took India to victory against New Zealand in the ICC World Cup semi-final.

He picked 1/34 with the ball and showed glimpses of his brilliant fielding by taking a sensational catch and affecting a run out but it was his contribution with the bat, scoring 77 off 59 deliveries with four boundaries and four sixes which was the most telling.

He celebrated in his typical style, pointing towards the commentary box and taking a dig at Sanjay Manjrekar, who had called Jadeja a “Bits and Pieces” player.

Later on, after the match, Manjrekar admitted that Jadeja had proven him wrong.

"By bits 'n' pieces of sheer brilliance, he's ripped me apart on all fronts." Manjrekar was quoted as saying by ICC.

Manjrekar’s comments had not gone down well with the all-rounder, who had taken to Twitter to show his displeasure after being called a bits and pieces player. Jadeja went onto accuse the former India player of verbal diarrhea.

Jadeja’s sensational effort with the bat was in vain in the end as New Zealand registered a 18-run victory and sealed a spot in the final of the World Cup.
