India lock horns against New Zealand in the first semi-final of the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 at the Old Trafford in Manchester on Tuesday. The fans were earlier deprived of a contest between these two teams in the league stages as the match was washed away due to rain. 

Meanwhile, ex-Indian cricketer, Sanjay Manjrekar had come with his team where all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja was missing from the list.

After skipper Virat Kohli had revealed India's Playing XI in the squad, Manjrekar once again came forward to give his opinion. 

Here is India's Playing XI for the semis against New Zealand.

The cricketer-turned-commentator did not seem to be pleased with the Men In Blue's team selection. Here's what he tweeted.

No prizes in guessing who one of those bowlers was. It was Ravindra Jadeja himself. Meanwhile, Jadeja scalped the wicket of a well-set Henry Nicholls who was involved in a 68-run stand with Kiwi skipper Kane Williamson.

However, the fans after having realised who the veteran commentator was referring to asked him to be frank and at the same time, also highlighted their importance in the side.
