The social media banter between former India batter Wasim Jaffer and ex-England cricketer Michael Vaughan is nothing new. The two often engage in pulling each other’s leg and their topic of talk mainly revolves around the performance of their respective national teams against each other. Given that India are currently touring England, the ongoing series between the sides gave the former cricketers yet another chance to have some fun. This time it was Vaughan, who found himself at the receiving end of Jaffer’s witty reply.
As the England batters put a flop show against India in the first ODI of the three-match series at Kennington Oval in London on Tuesday, Vaughan wrote to Jaffer on Twitter: “Fancy coming round for Tea @WasimJaffer14!! Think I have an evening free. #ENGvsIND.”
To this Jaffer replied: “Haha sure Michael, just let me get my ducks in a row first #ENGvIND.”
