The banter between Wasim Jaffer and Michael Vaughan is one that has caught the attention of the cricketing world. Both former cricketers pull each other’s legs in a cheeky manner and are extremely active on social media.
After India’s superb victory in the Under 19 World Cup Final against the England U19 side, Wasim Jaffer took to Twitter to offer his thoughts about India’s scintillating victory. Jaffer observed how the Indian side had reached the final and had then won the title that has now formed a pattern.
India had been the runners up of the 2016 U19 World Cup, had won the title in 2018, had once again reached the summit clash of the 2020 tournament, before going on to win the final of the 2022 U19 World Cup. He also tagged Michel Vaughan and added that some things just do not change.
“Finalists 2016. Champions 2018. Finalists 2020. Champions 2022 India. Some things never change eh Michael Vaughan,” tweeted Wasim Jaffer.
