Kings XI Punjab batting coach Wasim Jaffer after the conclusion of Indian Premier League (IPL), remains in headlines for his newly developed talent of ‘meme-sharing’. Once again he caught the attention of cricket fans when he posted a Bollywood meme to troll the franchise superstar and Australian all-rounder Glenn Maxwell on Sunday.
Jaffer, the batting coach of Kings XI Punjab on Sunday, took to Twitter to pull Maxwell’s leg amid the ongoing series between India and Australia.
In the second One Day International of the three-match series against India, Maxwell once again proved his worth in Australian squad as he scored a gritty 63 off 29 balls. Maxwell was the biggest disappointment for the Mohali based franchise in the just-concluded Indian Premier League. He accumulated 108 runs in 13 games at an ordinary average of 15.42 and strike rate of 101.88. He couldn’t even hit a single six throughout the season. After witnessing his poor performance in the just-concluded cash-rich league, his form in the ongoing series raises many eyebrows in the cricketing fraternity.
After seeing Maxwell’s red hot form against Team India after a forgetful season in the IPL, KXIP batting coach Jaffer took a sly dig at the Australian batsman on Twitter. The former Team India cricketer used a popular dialogue of Naseeruddin Shah, a famous Bollywood actor to troll Maxwell.
“Gunaah hai yeh,” wrote Jaffer tagging Maxwell on Twitter.
(Translation: “It is a crime,” wrote Jaffer on Twitter)
As long as the match is concerned, Australia won the toss, opted to bat first in the second ODI. While batting first, Australia posted 389 for 4 in the allotted 50 overs. Steve Smith was the highest run-scorer for Australia as he smashed 104 off 64 balls.
