The Indian cricket team lost its second consecutive match in the ICC T20 World Cup 2021 against New Zealand which was played yesterday at Dubai International Stadium.
The Kiwis won the toss and asked India to bat first. The Indian batters performed very poorly as the whole team managed only 110/7 in the stipulated 20 overs and the way they batted, cricket fans were not able to believe that this is the same team which was considered as the favorites for winning the tournament. The Black Caps achieved the target of 111 runs in just 14.3 overs and won the match comfortably by 8 wickets.
Earlier in its first match of the tournament, the Indian squad suffered a humiliating defeat against Pakistan and fans were really hoping that India would make a strong comeback but the manner in which the Indian side played against New Zealand, all the hopes of cricket lovers must have got thrashed.
The former England cricketer Michael Vaughan used India’s poor performance as an opportunity to take a dig at the former Indian cricketer Wasim Jaffer as they both often engage in Twitter banters.
Michael Vaughan tweeted, “How are you @WasimJaffer14?”

Wasim Jaffer who is known for his funny tweets replies with a still from the American sitcom Friends in which the character Ross doesn’t look in the good condition and replies in a squeaky voice that he is fine.

Wasim Jaffer tried to troll Michael Vaughan earlier when the latter predicted that the final of the tournament would be between England and Pakistan.
Vaughan tweeted, “England are an outstanding T20 Team.. So much clarity in everything they do.. making a decent Aussie team look very very average.. Pakistan v England final anyone?? #T20WorldCup #Pak #Eng”

Wasim Jaffer reacted with a meme of the Indian comedian Raju Shrivastav with the caption, “Team India who’ve played just one game seeing people pick semi finalists and finalists already: #T20WorldCup21”.

The Indian cricket team has disappointed fans in a big manner in the T20 World Cup and with the recent defeat against New Zealand, India’s chances of going into semi-finals have also become very bleak. What do you say?
