Jaffer trolls Hazlewood after Pujara bought by CSK
Former Indian cricketer Wasim Jaffer trolled Australian right-arm fast bowler Josh Hazlewood after the IPL contract for Cheteshwar Pujara.
The hammering process for this year’s edition of the Indian Premier League has come to an end. The event witnessed some good bids as well as some surprise bids. End of the day, the auction ended as a successful one and the excitement for IPL 2021 has already at peak among the fans.
Indian right-handed batsman Cheteshwar Pujara got a surprise IPL contract as he was picked by Chennai Super Kings for the base price of 50 INR Laks. This was indeed a surprise pick in the day as we all know the batsman is a pure Test cricketer.

Meanwhile, former Indian cricketer Wasim Jaffer made fun of Australian fast bowler Josh Hazlewood after the above bid by Chennai Super Kings. It is because the Indian batsman troubled the Aussie bowlers a lot during India’s last tour to Australia.
Indian fielding coach R Sridhar too funnily told in an interview that the fast bowler was very much annoyed with the batting from Cheteshwar Pujara in the Test series. Ironically, now both of them are in the same franchise for IPL 2021.
The former Indian cricketer mentioned the fact that Hazlewood may need to bowl against Pujara in the nets of Chennai Super Kings. “That moment when you realize you will have to bowl again to @cheteshwar1 in the nets,” Jaffer quoted with a photo of the Aussie fast bowler.
