Former India player Wasim Jaffer knows for his funny and witty tweets as well as strong meme game. However, this time, he hasn’t tweeted anything on the ongoing Ashes series. The series is playing between two arch-rivals – England and Australia. It has started on Wednesday (December 8) at the Gabba in Brisbane.
Meanwhile, on Thursday (December 9), a fan has asked the Jaffer why he hasn’t tweeted anything regarding Ashes. To which, he gave a brilliant reply. Jaffer said he was more interested in the Vijay Hazare Trophy than the Ashes. “Frankly I’m more interested in the #VijayHazareTrophy at the moment,” tweeted the veteran. He stated that because he is the head coach of Odisha and was appointed in July.

On the other hand, as far as India’s cricket is concerned, the BCCI has announced Rohit Sharma as the new ODI captain, replacing Virat Kohli. Rohit recently opened up how the newly-appointed head coach Rahul Dravid started his tenure. Dravid took over the reins from Ravi Shastri after the 2021 T20 World Cup and Rohit Sharma praised him. Rohit has shared that Dravid will ensure the team gets used to his culture of hard work.
Speaking to Boria Majumdar on his show ‘Backstage with Boria’, Rohit said: “Rahul Bhai was a brilliant cricketer, we all know that without a doubt. We all know how he has played his cricket. He himself has come out and said on so many occasions that he was not so talented. He had to work so hard to get where he is today. I think that is going to reflect on this team as well.”
He continued: “Making sure that we work hard as a team. That nothing is given on a platter to anyone. He will make you work hard. Obviously, when you do that, when you enjoy that process, you feel good about it. Because there is a process that has been put in place.”
