Wasim Jaffer

Wasim Jaffer is a previous Indian cricketer. He was a right-given opening batsman and an intermittent right arm off-break bowler. He is at present the most noteworthy run-scorer in Ranji Trophy cricket, outperforming Amol Muzumdar. In November 2018, he turned into the primary batsman to score 11,000 runs in the opposition. Wasim Jaffer is in India for the second Test between India and South Africa. The former Indian opener is enjoying every moment of Johannesburg.

Former India cricketer Wasim Jaffer is famously known as the 'meme king' on Twitter for his hilarious tweets and memes on the latest happenings in cricket. Jaffer often manages to tickle the funny bones of cricket fans with his witty and funny takes on the game. Jaffer also doesn't shy away from enjoying some fun banter with others and has enjoyed a great rivalry with former England captain Michael Vaughan on social media. While the two came up against each other on a few occasions while playing for their respective countries, Vaughan and Jaffer have kept the rivalry alive off the field.

Team India is chasing history in the second Test in Johannesburg. India are yet to win a Test series in South Africa and the second Test at the Wanderers is poised for an exciting finish, with South Africa ending Day 3 at 118/2 in the 240-run chase. The Indian pacers will be aiming to exploit the deteriorating pitch conditions in the opening hours of Day 4 – if the rain gods show mercy on the two teams.

Ashwin bowls one on the half-volley and Elgar drills it past mid-on to bring up his fifty with a boundary. Runs have come at a good rate for South Africa as they move to 137/2. Bumrah goes past van der Dussen's outside edge with a delivery that seamed away sharply, almost like a very fast leg break. Two leg byes in the same over help South Africa open the account for the day. Ashwin is given the ball from the other end and he bowls one on Elgar's pads and three leg byes come as a result. Elgar gets the first run of the bat as he clips away a Bumrah delivery for a single. Bonus runs for South Africa as Bumrah bowls a short ball that goes above the keeper and results in five wides.

The weather forecast for Day 4 doesn't look as promising as it did in the first three days and it is expected that rain will likely hamper the proceedings throughout the day. While the first hour of the day is likely to be played without much hindrance from the weather gods, rain is expected to hamper a large part of the remainder of the day. This comes as a positive sign for the hosts, as they can opt for a heavy roller ahead of the day's play which would dampen a significant bit of extra bounce on the surface in the opening hour. Earlier, India put 266 in the second innings on Day 3 to set South Africa a 240-run target to win in Johannesburg. After a brisk start, Aiden Markram fell on 31 to Shardul Thakur before Ravichandran Ashwin removed Keegan Petersen near the closing stages of the day.

While the South Africans finished Day 3 on a strong note, India will be looking to draw inspiration from their previous Test win in Johannesburg three years ago, where the Virat Kohli-led side made a comeback from a similar position.

Australian media trolls Virat Kohli by comparing Mitchell Starc and Virat Kohli's batting average in Tests since 2019. Virat Kohli has been in low form since last 2-3 years. To which Wasim Jaffer trolled them by comaparing the ODI batting averages of Navdeep Saini and Steve Smith.
