Indian commentator Sanjay Manjrekar has been on the receiving end of some heavy criticism over the past few weeks. The former Indian cricketer hasn't been impressing too many viewers with his comments on-air, leading to a widespread vexation among the game's followers. In fact, one of the viewers even wrote a letter to the ICC requesting the removal of Manjrekar from the commentary team.
He has also been trolled on social media for his allegedly 'biased' commentary. The man has even been at the centre of a scathing attack from MS Dhoni's fans, who weren't too pleased with his remarks on their favourite cricketer. In fact, a few fans preferred to mute the channel while Manjrekar went on air. Some celebrities and cricketers too have vented frustration over his commentary.
In the latest, the commentator's recent remarks on Ravindra Jadeja haven't down well with the Indian all-rounder. Expressing his views on Ravindra Jadeja, Sanjay Manjrekar said, "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."
Giving a sharp response to the same, Ravindra Jadeja took to Twitter to slam the commentator. Terming the comments as 'verbal diarrhoea', Jadeja stated that he has played twice the number of matches played by Manjrekar.
"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 had enough of your verbal diarrhoea," Jadeja wrote on Twitter on Wednesday.

Interestingly, Jadeja's tweet has found thumping support from the fans.
