Ever since Sanjay Manjrekar coined the term ‘bits and pieces cricketer’ for India ace Ravindra Jadeja, the fans have not let him forget that. The former India batsman had caused a massive controversy in last year’s World Cup with his words for Jadeja.

Sanjay Manjrekar had called Jadeja a ‘bits and pieces cricketer’ after the latter failed to break into India’s playing eleven during the tournament in the UK. A furious Jadeja had then slammed Sanjay Manjrekar on Twitter, asking the latter to stop his verbal diarrhoea. The allrounder went on to play a heroic knock of 77 in the semi-final against New Zealand to give a fitting reply to the former cricketer.

The former cricketer-turned-commentator had later issued an apology for his comments while also clarifying that his statement. And while Sanjay Manjrekar has definitely moved on from the incident, the fans make sure to remind him of the same every now and then.

Something similar happened on Saturday (August 22) when he took to Twitter to post a non-cricket tweet, writing: “Must stop thinking of food as a source of entertainment.”

And one of the Twitter handles responded to that tweet in a cheeky manner, writing: “A few bits and pieces are fine’

Sanjay Manjrekar’s response:

The former batsman noticed the tweet and decided to respond it. In a nonchalant manner, he stated that the ‘bits and pieces’ jibe is predictable and overused, writing:

Oh no! This is so predictable and so overused.”

The Twitter handle then hit back at Sanjay Manjrekar by stating that while the jibe is overused, it is not predictable. However, the commentator did not agree to it as he wrote:

“Predictable too my friend.”

Earlier this year, he was sacked as commentator by BCCI in March just ahead of the ODI series against South Africa which was eventually postponed. Recent reports suggested that he requested the BCCI to hire him back for the upcoming IPL but he did not get any response from the Indian cricket board.
