In the recent past, former Indian cricketer and domestic legend Wasim Jaffer has established himself as one of the popular faces among cricket fans on social media. Jaffer is famous for his social media game and sharing memes and hilarious pictures on his official Twitter handle. The Punjab Kings batting coach recently made his much-anticipated YouTube debut too.
The 43-year-old posted a minute-long introduction video on his YouTube channel. In his very first video, Jaffer gave a hidden message to the Indian cricket team for their upcoming fixture against New Zealand. India is all set to be a part of a historic event as they will lock horns against New Zealand in the final of the inaugural edition of the World Test Championship from June 18 to June 22 at Southampton.
The Blackcaps boast of having a formidable pace attack including the likes of Matt Henry, Tim Southee, Kyle Jamieson, and Trent Boult. Thus, it will be nothing less than a challenge for the Indian batting line-up to perform at the English pitches that are known for providing assistance to the seamers. Jaffer, who has toured England twice in his cricket career, advised the Indian contingent to take inspiration from the police in old Bollywood movies and do what they are famous for.
Fans easily decode Wasim Jaffer’s hidden message
“I have been on tours to England twice with the Indian team. My coded message for the Indian batsmen is – Do what our police is famous for doing in old Bollywood movies. Use that while batting in the final,” said Jaffer in his YouTube video.
The video posted by Jaffer attracted the attention of a lot of cricket fans. Many in the comment section easily decoded the message given by the veteran batsman. Back in time, the police in the Bollywood movies were famous for arriving late. Thus, Jaffer wanted to convey that the Indian players should play late against the New Zealand pacers if the conditions assist seam and movement.
Meanwhile, India is participating in the practice games to get back in the rhythm and get accustomed to the English pitches and weather conditions. In the practice match, many players including the likes of Rishabh Pant, KL Rahul, Shubman Gill, Ravindra Jadeja, and Mohammed Siraj seemed to be in good touch.
