“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," Manjrekar's message read.
The chat apparently took place after Manjrekar and Jadeja were involved in a heated altercation in 2019. After India's loss to England in the World Cup, the analyst had called Jadeja a “bits and pieces” cricketer. To this, the Chennai Super Kings all-rounder replied by saying, “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."
Ravindra Jadeja had hit a half-century during India's semi-final loss against New Zealand.
