Wasim Jaffer & Michael Vaughan Engage In A War Of Words Post India’s Defeat In First T20I


Wasim Jaffer & Michael Vaughan Engage In A War Of Words Post India’s Defeat In First T20I

Michael Vaughan, the former England cricketer certainly loves to criticise the Indian team whether it wins or lose and the humiliating manner in which India got defeated by England in the first T20I match was more than enough for Vaughan to take dig at the Indian side.

The Indian cricket team’s batting performance was disappointing as it managed to score only 124/7 in the stipulated 20 overs despite having a star-studded batting line-up. In fact, it won’t be wrong to say that if Shreyas Iyer had not played a brilliant knock of 67, India would have found it difficult to reach the 100 runs mark. Achieving the target was not difficult for the England team as they won the game by 8 wickets with 27 balls remaining in their innings. The English pacer Jofra Archer was adjudged as the player of the match for the 3 wickets that he took in the game.

Michael Vaughan took to Twitter and wrote that the IPL team Mumbai Indians is a better team than the Indian team. Vaughan’s tweet read, “The @mipaltan are a better T20 team than @BCCI !!! #JustSaying #INDvENG”.

Rohit Sharma led MI is certainly one of the best cricketing units as it has won the IPL five times but comparing it with the Indian team is certainly not right. The former Indian cricketer Wasim Jaffer who is now known for his witty tweets decided to respond to Vaughan’s tweet and he wrote, “Not all teams are lucky enough to play four overseas players Michael”.

This was a subtle dig taken by Wasim Jaffer on the team composition of England as they have players of different nationalities playing for them while in the IPL, teams can play only four overseas players and the remaining team has to be comprised of the Indian players.

Michael Vaughan was in no mood to end the banter so he responded with the memories of 2002 Lord’s test in which he took the wicket of Wasim Jaffer when the former Indian cricketer was at the score of 53.

Vaughan tweeted, “Have you still not recovered from me getting you out at Lords!??”

While everyone expected a strong reply from Wasim Jaffer, he replied in quite simple manner, “That’s just Life’s Amazing Memories Eh, Michael 🙂 #INDvENG”

However, there is a catch in the reply as few Twitter users stated and it seems that the Mumbai Legend has trolled the former England cricketer in an amazing manner as “Life’s Amazing Memories Eh” sums up to LAME.

Wasim Jaffer is not just cricket legend but Twitter Legend as well. What do you say?
