Sanjay Manjrekar's T20 Squad: Picked Axar in place of Jadeja


Sanjay Manjrekar and Ravindra Jadeja tussle is back. Manjrekar believes that Jadeja will not be able to find his spot at the T20 world cup squad.

In his official statement, he mentioned “Clearly, Dinesh Karthik has shown that he can be a number 6 or 7 as a pure batter. The impact that he is making is phenomenal and we saw that in T20Is against South Africa and also in the IPL.So, it’s not really going to be easy for Jadeja to come in and take his place and India might settle in with somebody like Axar Patel."

He also added, "The side now has Hardik Pandya, Karthik batting down the order. Rishabh Pant is also there so it’s not going to be easy for him. But knowing the kind of player Jadeja is, he will be making sure that the headache doesn’t get less for the selectors.”

Due to injury, the star all rounder player was not able to participate in the T20 world cup against South Africa. 

This is not the first time when the veteran player is cricitzing Jadeja. Back in 2019, we saw a same situation when he called him a "bits and pieces" player.
