India all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja on Wednesday hit back at former cricketer Sanjay Manjrekar on Twitter for Manjrekar's remarks on him.
Manjrekar told media that he is not a big fan of bits and pieces players like Jadeja. The statement did not go well with the all-rounder and Jadeja in a tweet said he has played twice the number of matches than Manjrekar and told him to "learn to respect people".
