Sanjay Manjrekar is one person who is popular for the controversies he gets himself into. The former Indian cricketer has been embroiled in controversies more often than not. His statements and remarks on certain players have gotten him into a tight spot many times. One of the most infamous controversies was when Sanjay Manjrekar called Jadeja a ‘bits and pieces’ player which irked the Indian all-rounder to a great extent.
The incident goes back to the 2019 World Cup when India lost a match against England.

Ravindra Jadeja was not one to be cowed down as he hit back at the commentator for his remarks against him. The cricket fans also thrashed Manjrekar for his inappropriate tweet against Jadeja.
Sanjay Manjrekar’s fresh comments on Ravindra Jadeja
It seems that the controversies are not going to leave Manjrekar anytime soon as he may have invited fresh trouble for himself. A Twitter user has disclosed Sanjay Manjrekar’s direct messages and they are not a good sight for the fans and Manjrekar alike. In one of the messages, Manjrekar has stated that Ravindra Jadeja doesn’t understand English, so he didn’t get the meaning of ‘bits and pieces.’
I didn’t want to share this personal chat in public, even though it’s full to shit. But couldn’t help, coz ppl need to know this side of this man. @imjadeja would be proud of what he did to prove you wrong. @BCCI is this the kind of man you would want in your com panel in future? pic.twitter.com/AUjX301Foz

As for Jadeja, he is currently preparing himself for the World Test Championship Final which is scheduled to start from June 18 in Rosebowl, Southampton, England. Jadeja has become a vital cog in the Indian team setup after he improved his game with the bat. He has been one of the most important players to have played for India in the past few years.
The Indian team will be playing a 5-match Test series against England after the conclusion of the WTC final. WTC Final will be the first time in the history of Indian cricket when the team will play at a neutral venue.
