Sanjay Manjrekar blocks Michael Vaughan: Former England captain made the development public on the same development.

Former India cricketer Sanjay Manjrekar has blocked former England captain Michael Vaughan on social media platform Twitter. The development was made public by the latter as he took on the same platform to make the announce in a fresh tweet.

Manjrekar has been doing the rounds in the news lately. Since he voiced his opinion on India all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja being a ‘bits and pieces’ cricketer, he has faced both severe criticism and ardent support for his words.

The matter was highlighted after Jadeja eventually took on Manjrekar by posting a fitting reply on the same platform. While India’s last match against Sri Lanka was Jadeja’s first one in the tournament, him picking up a wicket in the first over itself didn’t bode well for Manjrekar who was harshly trolled on Twitter by fans and Chennai Super Kings.

It was Vaughan who posted a couple of tweets which included mention of ‘bits and pieces’ cricketer. These tweets were posted when Jadeja came in to bowl and when he dismissed Henry Nicholls in the 19th over in the ongoing first semi-final of ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 between India and New Zealand.

Just when New Zealand’s innings was in the slog overs, Vaughan tweeted about Manjrekar blocking him.
