Wasim Jaffer trolls Steve Smith with a hilarious meme featuring Shoaib Akhtar
Delhi Capitals had posted a video message by their new buy Steve Smith.
Australia batsman Steve Smith shared a message for Delhi Capitals (DC) fans after being bought by the franchise in IPL 2021 auction. Delhi paid INR 2.2 crore to get Smith in their squad. He was the captain of Rajasthan Royals last season.
Smith recorded a video message for his fans and DC's official Twitter account posted the clip for those who were excited about the Aussie's reaction. Funnily, Smith didn't blink in the video and former India cricketer Wasim Jaffer saw the funny side of it.
Jaffer, with no offense, shared a meme featuring Ex-Pakistan pacer Shoaib Akhtar which read, "aapne mere bacche dara diye (you scared my kids)". He captioned the meme, "aise kyu dekh rahe ho? (why are you looking like this?)".
In the video shared by Delhi Capitals on Twitter, Smith said, "Hey there Delhi Capitals fans, just wanted to say that I am really excited about joining the team this year. I think it is a great squad of players and a great coach. I look forward to getting over there and creating some amazing memories and hopefully helping the team go one better than last year."
Apart from Smith, DC also bought England bowling all-rounder Tom Curran for Rs 5.25 crore, and Sam Billings at his base prices of Rs 2 crore.
Wasim Jaffer's tweet went viral in time as fans flooded it with responses. Several reactions poured in as fans lauded the former cricketer for his impeccable sense of humour. Here's how fans reacted to Wasim Jaffer's tweet.
Meanwhile, Steve Smith became the first player to join forces with the Delhi Capitals team in the mini-auction. The Steve Smith IPL 2021 price stands at ₹2.20 crore. Besides the former Australian captain, Delhi bought the likes of Umesh Yadav, Tom Curran, and Sam Billings. Moreover, they also added rising Indian domestic stars like Ripal Patel, Vishnu Vinod, Lukman Meriwala, and M Siddharth to their squad.
If the 31-year-old Smith’s first bid was made by Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB), the second bid was made by Delhi Capital and he went to his account. “I’m really excited to join the team this year.” The team has great players and great coaches (Ricky Ponting). I am excited to join the team and add some great memories with them. Hope that helps the team get better results than last year.
The star batsman will be associated with the Rajasthan Royals in 2019 and his captaincy in the UAE in 2020. However, the Rajasthan Royals finished last. In the IPL, Smith has scored 2333 runs in 95 matches at an average of 35.34. Smith captained the Rising Pune Supergiants in the IPL.
Wasim Jaffer was at his hilarious best once again as he used a famous Shoaib Akhtar meme to react to the Steve Smith IPL 2021 message for Delhi Capitals fans.
Former Indian opener Wasim Jaffer never fails to amuse his fans with his wicked sense of humour. The 43-year-old has become a fan favourite recently due to his hysterical way of explaining different situations through memes. Jaffer has been immensely active on Twitter since the IPL 2020 as he keeps sharing his views regularly in a unique way.
Reacting to Steve Smith's message for Delhi Capitals fans, Wasim Jaffer posted a Shoaib Akhtar meme where the Pakistani veteran says 'Aapne mere bacche dara diye!" which means "You scared my children". Jaffer used the Shoaib Akhtar meme to take a jibe at the Australian as he was looking at the camera in an unusual way. For the unversed, the Shoaib Akhtar meme was born out of his YouTube video where he roasted the PSL anthem ‘Groove Mera’, revealing how it frightened his children.
