The feud between former Indian batsman Sanjay Manjrekar and former England skipper Michael Vaughan took an ugly turn after the former allegedly blocked the English commentator on Twitter, according to Michael Vaughan, who took to Twitter to convey the message to fans.
Read the tweet below:
Vaughan and Manjrekar were involved in a bitter exchange of words after the Indian commentator called India's Ravindra Jadeja a 'bits-and-pieces' cricketer, following which the all-rounder lashed out at Manjrekar. The Indian commentator, who is known for his extremely vocal views on the Indian team, has been facing the ire of the netizens as his analyses of the game have included a few too many criticisms for Indian fans' liking.
Vaughan had replied to Manjrekar who had put out a list of probable eleven who would play in the semi-finals, during the India-Sri Lanka clash. Vaughan had asked Manjrekar if he had picked the 'bits-and-pieces" cricketer in his team to which Manjrekar had snapped back saying that it was his 'prediction' and not 'his' team. The former English cricketer, however, did not give up and continued to press the Indian commentator for a reply.
Netizens reacted to Manjrekar allegedly blocking Vaughan. Read some of the reactions here:
One fan criticized Vaughan for repeatedly going after Manjrekar.
Prior to the India-New Zealand semi-final clash, Vaughan had put out a tweet that left fans baffled. The tweet said that India's all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja's inclusion in the playing eleven against New Zealand at Old Trafford would indicate that India was 'daft'.
