New Delhi, June 11: Former India opener Wasim Jaffer is known for his witty oneliners on social media. The Mumbaikar's tweets and responses often tickle the funny bone of his fans and followers.
Jaffer - who is a stalwart of India's domestic cricket - is carving a name out of himself with his witty posts and comments on Twitter. The Mumbaikar has been sharing humorous tweets and memes on social media in the run-up to the highly anticipated World Test Championship (WTC) Final between India and New Zealand, starting June 18 in Southampton.
In his latest comment to a tweet posted by India off-spinner Ravichandran Ashwin, Jaffer has once again given Twitteratti a chance to laugh by calling India batsman Cheteshwar Pujara as 'White Walker' and also posted a popular Hindi movie dialogue.
Apparently, Ashwin posted an image of himself with Pujara from the net session and asked the fans to caption it. "Prizes for guessing what @cheteshwar1 is telling me here!," tweeted Ashwin.
Jaffer - in his own funny way - replied: "2016 WT20, 2019 WC semi sabka badla lega re tera White Walker. unbowed, unbent, unbroken #WTCFinal. (Your White Walker will take revenge for 2016 WT20, 2019 WC semi-final defeat. unbowed, unbent, unbroken)."
Ashwin gave Pujara the nickname 'White Walker' for his ability to bat for a long period of time on the crease and used the word from the popular US TV series Game of Thrones. The Hindi dialogue Jaffer wrote was from the popular Hindi movie 'Gangs of Wasseypur-2'.
Hahahaha!! White Walker 😂— Mask up and take your vaccine🙏🙏🇮🇳 (@ashwinravi99) June 11, 2021
Earlier, former India wicket-keeper Parthiv Patel backed Pujara to be the highest run-scorer in the WTC Final. Speaking exclusively on the Star Sports, Patel said, "I will back Cheteshwar Pujara to get the highest scorer title in this Test match. If India has to win, you have to keep Pujara for your No.3 - if India loses early wickets. If he goes on to bat for 3-4 hours in this Test match, I think India will be in a very good position. So, I am backing Pujara to be the highest run-scorer in this Test match."
