Former Indian cricketer Wasim Jaffer is a popular figure on Twitter. The manner in which he timely comes up with hilarious memes based on the scenarios earned him a separate fan base. Every now and then, he chips in with memes and funny tweets.
The phrase ‘meme king’ started trending on social media platforms and Jaffer deservedly earned the name for himself for his hilarious activities on Twitter. The former Indian opener has been closely following Indian cricket and has often come up with opinions on the game.
When Michael Vaughan, Brad Hogg, and other foreigners tried to mess with Team India, Jaffer silenced them in the form of memes and epic tweets. Former Australian captain Ricky Ponting, former cricketer Brad Hogg said India has no chance of turning it around after the Adelaide debacle.
Even Tim Paine during the third Test in Sydney told Ravichandran Ashwin: “Can’t wait to see you at The Gabba Ash”. Aussies were confident that they would hammer India considering the fact that they haven’t lost a Test match since 1988, a 32-year-old streak that kept ongoing.
Perhaps the Aussies were overconfident as they underestimated the Indians at the Gabba. Ajinkya Rahane and Co breached the fortress and ended Australia’s dominant streak. India won by 3 wickets and also secured their second Test series glory on Australian soil.
After India retained the Border Gavaskar Trophy, Wasim Jaffer took to Twitter to troll Australia. “So what’s gonna be the excuse this time? Ponting, McGrath, and Warne weren’t playing? Winking face with tongue,” Jaffer wrote. His tweet went viral in no time.
