During India’s T20 World Cup warm-up match, commentator Sanjay Manjrekar made a humorous reference to his past criticism of Ravindra Jadeja.

Cricket fans were treated to a moment of reminiscence during the recent India vs. Bangladesh T20 World Cup warm-up match. Ravindra Jadeja, who has a history with commentator Sanjay Manjrekar, was batting when a close dismissal call arose.

The incident occurred in the 17th over. Jadeja attempted a big shot but missed the ball, with Bangladesh appealing for a caught-behind dismissal. While replays showed Jadeja’s back foot may have been slightly behind the crease, the decision ultimately went in his favour.

The commentators, including Manjrekar, initially believed it was out. However, Manjrekar’s following remark drew chuckles from his colleagues: “He did not get his toes behind the line, and only the toes, as you can see, are in contact with the ground. Now it’s Jadeja batting, so I better shut up.”

This lighthearted comment alludes to the infamous exchange between Jadeja and Manjrekar during the 2019 World Cup. Manjrekar had called Jadeja a “bits and pieces player,” leading to a fiery response from the all-rounder on social media. “I’ve played twice the number of matches you have and I’m still going strong. It’s time to respect those who have achieved. I’ve had my fill of your verbal diarrhoea,” commented Jadeja.

While both parties have seemingly moved on, the incident remains a memorable one for cricket fans. Manjrekar’s commentary, delivered in jest, humorously referenced the past tension between him and Jadeja.
