Fan teases Wasim Jaffer on Twitter; former cricketer gives an apt reply
Team India stunned Australia and the cricket fraternity after a magnificent win at The Gabba. Ajinkya Rahane & Co breached the fortress with a 3-wicket victory as Australia lost their first Test at this venue after 32 years.
Rishabh Pant was named the man of the match for his unbeaten 89* (8 fours, 2 sixes). Shubman Gill scored a staggering 91 at the top while Cheteshwar Pujara scored 56. With this famous win in Brisbane, India won the Test series by 2-1.
This is also India’s second Test series victory in Australian soil. Following a historic Test series victory over Australia, fans from all across the nation rejoiced the victory. Fans poured in with wishes for Team India and congratulated them.
Meanwhile, former Indian opener Wasim Jaffer took this as an opportunity to troll the Australian cricket team. “So what’s gonna be the excuse this time? Ponting, McGrath, and Warne weren’t playing? #AUSvsIND,” Jaffer hilariously trolled the Australian team.
