Former Indian batter Wasim Jaffer has taken a sly dig at the England team after their massive defeat by an inning and 12 runs in the first Test at Lord’s against the South African team. Actually, everybody in World cricket was appreciating the way Brendon McCullum and Ben Stokes transformed the pattern of batting in Test cricket.
The English team started doing wonders in the fourth innings of the game. Cricket experts and fans were in all praise of the pair and termed it as ‘Bazball’. But South African skipper, Dean Elgar had something different to say just before the start of the first Test match against England.
Recently, former veteran Indian cricketer Jaffer took a jibe on English for their fourth innings approach. Jaffer also went on to praise the intent of the South African team to destroy the Bazball effect of England.
“Bazball has done wonders in the fourth inns, SA: There will be no fourth inns. #ENGvSA,” reads the tweet from Wasim Jaffer. Fans also reacted to in a funny manner to this tweet from the Jaffer.
"Bazball has done wonders in the fourth inns"

Notably, it’s not the first time when Wasim Jaffer trolled the English team, there have been a few instances in the past when he had some funny banters with the former England skipper Michael Vaughan.
