Jadeja doesn’t know English, says Sanjay Manjrekar in a Twitter chat

Published

Former cricketer and popular commentator Sanjay Manjrekar is making it to the headlines these days for all wrong reasons. Just a few days back, he stated that he would not include Ashwin in his all-time great players’ list and made harsh comments on him. Now, a Twitter user publicized the private chat he had with Manjrekar where the latter said Ravindra Jadeja doesn’t know English.

Recently, a Twitter user lashed out at Manjrekar’s comments on Ashwin. Responding to him, Manjrekar said, “You can’t be saying anything about me because you are not even 1% player I was.” Then the user criticized Manjrekar for being a ruthless commentator rather than a constructive critic. Then, Manjrekar wrote, “Sad state you are in. Expecting me to worship players like you do… by the way I am not a fan. I am an analyst. And Jadeja doesn’t know English so he did not know the actual meaning of bits and pieces. And surely somebody spelt verbal diarrhoea for him.”

During the 2019 World Cup, Manjrekar said that he would not rate Jadeja as a proper player in the ODI format. “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,” he said.

Responding to his comments, Jadeja wrote, “Still I have played twice the number of matches you have played and I am still playing. Learn to respect people who have achieved. I have heard enough of your verbal diarrhoea.”

Meanwhile, netizens are now demanding BCCI to sack Manjrekar from his commentating status, stating that he doesn’t deserve to be a commentator anymore.

MC Mary Kom lost in her quarter final bout against Colombian Rio 2016 bronze medallist Ingrit Valencia at the Tokyo Olympics. She was declared the loser in a 3-2 decision in the quarter-final bout.

Speaking to a news channel, Mary Kom said that, “When I entered the doping centre to give my sample after the fight, even then I couldn’t believe that I lost. My coach was trying to tell me that I won, but what does that mean I’m not able to understand.”

She further added that, “I thought I was winning the fight. Then I saw Kiren Rijiju’s tweet on social media about my defeat, I was shocked and upset after that. I don’t know what to say, I can’t believe a decision like this was made.”

She also said that, “I can’t even protest because we were told that’s not allowed in this Olympics. Things like these have happened to me in the past as well in other competitions. It’s not the case with this Olympics alone. A similar thing happened with me in the last boxing world championships also.”

She asserted that this was the worst Olympics for her and very badly organised.
