‘You okay to talk to me? Right Jaddu?’ Sanjay Manjrekar’s cheeky question to Ravindra Jadeja in his post-match interview
Ravindra Jadeja’s 52-run stand for the fifth wicket with Hardik Pandya played a key role in India’s five-wicket win over Pakistan in the Asia Cup.
Ravindra Jadeja and Sanjay Manjrekar didn’t have the best equation on social media as the former cricketer termed the Indian all-rounder a ‘bits and pieces player’ during the 2019 World Cup. The all-rounder also responded to criticism on Twitter by terming his remarks as ‘verbal diarrhoea’.
After his fifty in the 2019 WC semi-final, Jadeja had taunted Manjrekar at the commentary studio with ‘Ab kya bologe?’ shrug. Later he also explained that famous celebration to this newspaper.
“Tab toh Bhatta garam tha, na! (The grill was hot, then!) I was searching for the commentary box. Then I thought, it must be somewhere there, only. And those who understand would know who I was targeting the celebration at!”
During a post-match interview on Sunday, former India batsman Sanjay Manjrekar asked Ravindra Jadeja a cheeky question after India’s five-wicket win over Pakistan in the Asia Cup.
Manjrekar asked: “First question – are you okay to talk to me? Alright, Jaddu?”
Jadeja replied: “Yes, yes (laughs). Absolutely!!”
