In the T20I series that just ended against New Zealand, the new captain of India Rohit Sharma won all three games. A rare miracle has happened Wasim Jaffer and Zaheer Khan Take part in a funny joke about rare times in cricket. It all started with Zaheer’s tweet praising Rohit for his rare feat.
Rohit took over the captaincy of the Indian team in the shortest form since Virat kohli. While Kohli has a reputation for regularly losing pitches, Rohit has worked wonders by winning his first three throws as the team’s new full-time captain. This feat got the cricket brothers talking and the legend Zaheer Khan even joked if the coin had a secret chip attached.
“Still can’t believe that India has won 3/4 of the throws in the recent series. Do coins have a secret chip, like currency notes? just kidding, can you recall more such rare moments? Read Zaheer’s tweet.
Wasim Jaffer and Zaheer Khan come up with daring digging tricks together
Jaffer, who is known for his sarcastic tweets, gave a hilarious reply. Share a screenshot of India’s bowling scoreboard for the 4th game against the West Indies in 2002. Jaffer picked up two points in the match and had an even better economy than Zaheer. And domestic leaders were quick to point out the rarity.
“Yes, it’s rare to win 3 toss in a row but it’s not uncommon for Wasim Jaffer to have a better bowling figure than Zaheer Khan,Read Jaffer’s tweet.
Zaheer Khan is not one to back down from a fight and come up with a sly dig. The Swinging King gave a screenshot of a Fifth Test match against the West Indies in 2002, the same series that Jaffer mentioned earlier. In the game, Zaheer overtook Jaffer in both innings when the former Mumbai batting player was sent off for a duck in the first inning.
“Equally rare is Zaheer Khan’s passing @ WasimJaffer14 not in one but in two halves of a test match!“Zaheer returned fire.
In his defense, Wasim Jaffer asserted that pitchers can beat in most other Test matches while pitchers like him rarely cross their arms. Implying that Zaheer overestimates him is not too uncommon a phenomenon in the game. “Wasim Jaffer didn’t do well on every test but Zaheer Khan passed (almost) every test,‘ wrote Jaffer.
After wiping out the T20I series, India will now face New Zealand in a two-match Test series, starting Wednesday, November 25 in Kanpur. This will be the first meeting between the two solid sides in the longest format since ICC World Test Championship (WTC) last in June.
