Former Indian player Wasim Jaffer is the new ‘meme king’ on the micro-blogging Twitter platform. Jaffer often grabs the headlines when he posts rib-tickling memes or epic replies when a foreigner takes a dig at India.
Recently, Michael Vaughan took to Twitter and made an early prediction on Australia vs India series. The former England skipper was confident that Australia would defeat India convincingly in 3 formats.
However, the Men in Blue proved him wrong by winning the T20I series by 2-1. While Indian fans trolled Vaughan, Jaffer showed his hilarious side on Twitter. The 42-year-old replied to Vaughan’s prediction tweet with an extremely hilarious meme.
Jaffer’s tweet went viral in no time. Earlier, Brad Hogg took a swipe at Indian top-order batsmen by giving them important tips. Jaffer came up with a hilarious response which went viral on social media.
His apt reply won millions of fans’ hearts. The word ‘meme king’ started trending on Twitter after Jaffer showed his funny side. His activities earned him a huge fan base.
Jaffer trolls Indian fan with an honest reply
For the first time in Test cricket history, India registered a low-scoring total of 36/9. The likes of Josh Hazlewood and Pat Cummins ran riot as wickets kept falling like a pack of cards. Hazlewood picked up a magnificent fifer whereas Cummins took 4 wickets in the second innings.
After being slightly ahead of Australia in the first innings, nobody will have predicted India’s outcome in the second innings. After India was reduced to a low-scoring total, fans from across the world made plenty of memes.
Even Wasim Jaffer wasn’t really pleased with India batting. He took to Twitter to post a meme along with a message. The caption reads: “This is the worst! This is the worst! I hate looking at my timeline! I wanna smash it!”
Meanwhile, one of the fans tagged Wasim Jaffer for lack of creativity in India’s batting approach. The fan must have thought Jaffer is India’s batting coach. After India’s defeat at Adelaide Oval, a fan slammed Jaffer for not being serious as he is busy making memes.
“When the batting coach is busy making memes, what can be expected from the batsmen. #INDvAUS,” the fan wrote. Meanwhile, Jaffer could have easily ignored the post but preferred to give him an honest reply at least to tell him that he isn’t the batting coach.
Australia take the opening lead
The hosts comfortably beat the visitors by 8 wickets in the first Test. Rightly so, they took a 1-0 lead in the four-match Test series. Tim Paine was the man of the match for his unbeaten 73* in 1st innings.
India will play the last three Tests without Virat Kohli. The skipper will return to India to be with his wife. The star couple is expecting the arrival of their child in early January. The second Test is scheduled to be played at the MCG on December 26.
