Sanjay Manjrekar Trolled After Ravindra Jadeja, Hardik Pandya Play Match-Winning Knocks in IND vs AUS 3rd ODI; Twitterati Roast Commentator

Sanjay Manjrekar was once trolled on social media after Ravindra Jadeja and Hardik Pandya played match-winning knocks to lead India to a 13-run win in India vs Australia third ODI match. Jadeja and Pandya shared an unbeaten 150-run stand for the sixth wicket to take India to a huge total and set the rolling stone for the victory. Manjrekar, who had hit the headlines with his bits and pieces comment on Jadeja, had recently stated he would not pick both Jadeja and Pandya in his ODI teams. With both players coming good in the IND vs AUS third ODI match, Manjrekar was once again trolled on social media for his comments.

Manjrekar had courted controversy last year when he called Jadeja a ‘bits and pieces’ cricketer after India’s defeat to England in the group stages of the 2019 ICC Cricket World Cup. He was not only trolled for those comments but Jadeja lashed out at him and demanded to show some respect. Recently, in an interview with The Hindu, Manjrekar had clarified his comments were blown out of context but reiterated he won’t pick the likes of Jadeja and Pandya in his Indian ODI team. India vs Australia Stat Highlights 3rd ODI 2020: Virat Kohli’s 12k Feat and Other Stats.

Pandya ended the series as the highest run-getter for India with 210 runs in three innings. He was once again the highest scorer for India in the third ODI match with his 76-ball 92 helping the team post 302 runs on the scoreboard after struggling at 152/5 at one stage. His score of 92 is also Pandya’s highest individual score in ODI cricket.

Jadeja scored 66 from 50 deliveries in the third ODI match. His innings was studded with three maximums and five boundaries. Jadeja first stitched a crucial unbeaten 150-run stand with Pandya then with the ball in hand, he took the important wicket of Aaron Finch to bring back India into the game. Finch, who scored 75, almost singlehandedly was taking the match away from India before Jadeja struck. He also took a brilliant low catch to remove debutant Cameron green.

India, meanwhile, won the third ODI match by 13 runs but conceded the three-match ODI series 2-1. They had lost the first match by 66 runs and followed it with another disappointing 51-run loss before winning the third game. Both teams now move into the three-match T20I series, which starts with the first T20I encounter at Canberra on December 4.
