It seems controversy surrounding Sanjay Manjrekar and Ravindra Jadeja won't die its natural death. After days of discussion and taking sides by fans and former cricketers, things were finally settling down but Chennai Super Kings' entry has ignited the feud once again.

Former Indian cricketer-turned-commentator Sanjay Manjrekar was lambasted on Twitter by Ravindra Jadeja after his words didn't go down well with the Indian all-rounder.

Ravindra Jadeja's Indian Premier League franchise, Chennai Super Kings took to Twitter and posted a cheeky tweet in support of their player.

Seeing Jadeja being called a bits & pieces player by Manjrekar, CSK took a subtle dig at the former Indian cricketer.

“We, dear Sir, love you to bits, to pieces, eight times round the Moon and back! #WhistlePodu #SirJaddu #Yellove @imjadeja”, CSK tweeted.

"I am not a big fan of bits and pieces players which Jadeja is at this point of his career in 50-over cricket. In Test matches, he is a pure bowler. But in 50-over cricket, I would rather have a batsman and a spinner," Manjrekar had said.

"You never actually base your judgements on exceptional results. India losing to England was an exceptional result. Spinners going for runs is exceptional and you have to understand that," he added.

Jadeja decided to give him back. “Still i have played twice the number of matches you have played and i m still playing. Learn to respect ppl who have achieved.i have heard enough of your verbal diarrhoea.”
