Was The selection Biased?
Santner & Shakib both are identical spinners. You deliberately chose Santner because of Jadeja. 🤣
One more batsman in place of Santner.
Or Jimmy Neesham in place of him.

During the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019, Manjrekar stated that “I am not a big fan of bits and pieces players which Jadeja is at this point of his career in 50-over cricket”. to which the 30-year-old all-rounder tweeted: “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.”
Later in the mega-tournament, Jadeja played a magnificent of 77 runs in the all-important, semi-final match against New Zealand. The cameo wasn't sufficient to guide India over the line but enough to shatter the commentator. In the post-match discussion Manjrekar said that "By bits 'n' pieces of sheer brilliance, he's ripped me apart on all fronts" and again become a topic of mockery in social media.
