Wasim Jaffer is one player who has become an internet sensation because of the memes that he shares on social media. In his recent Tweet, he gave a befitting reply to an Australian broadcaster who compared Virat Kohli’s average in Test cricket since the start of 2019 to that of Mitchell Starc. In his reply, Jaffer compared the ODI career average of Navdeep Saini to that of Steve Smith and declared Saini as the better batter than Smith.

During an interaction with InsideSport, Jaffer was asked about his banter with former English captain Michael Vaughan. Jaffer mentioned Vaughan has a habit of poking the Indian fans and leaves no chance to troll the Indian team which he doesn’t like. The former Indian opener also added that the English team is also not playing very well in recent times but he never makes any unnecessary comment on that.

“He (Michael Vaughan) has a habit of doing unnecessary poking, which I don’t like. He doesn’t waste any opportunity to tweet something that might poke Indian fans even though we know how well England has performed. Indians don’t poke as much as he does. But it is a friendly banter between us as we have played against each other for quite a long time,” Jaffer said during an interaction with InsideSport.

Jaffer also shared a video of this conversation on Twitter with the following caption:

“This is the bit I enjoyed most while talking cricket with @Syaduvanshi1287 on @InsideSportIND and no prizes for guessing why,” Jaffer said.

Jaffer also trolled the English team for their performance in the Ashes

While talking about Vaughan, Jaffer mentioned how well England has performed in recent times. England lost the Ashes in a record 12 days after losing the first three Test matches. The fourth Test is currently underway where England needs to chase a target of 388 runs to win. The English captain Joe Root and head coach Chris Silverwood have been criticized a lot in the recent past due to their failed strategies by Vaughan himself.
