Former Indian opener, Wasim Jaffer has a knack for producing humor on social media and it has become a well-known fact in recent times. When the former Indian opener was asked for a meme on Sunil Gavaskar’s no-holds-barred reaction to criticism of Indian pitches, Jaffer came up with a gem.

Gavaskar lashed out at English cricket pundits who have been criticizing the pitch for the third Test between India and England in Ahmedabad. When Jaffer was asked to get a meme to describe Gavaskar’s emotions, he came up with a screenshot of a scene from the Bollywood film Hera Pheri.

Gavaskar came out hard on the critics of the Ahmedabad pitch and said Indian media should not pay any heed to what English pundits have to say. Quoting the example of the first Test of India’s 2020-21 tour to Australia, where Team India was bundled out for their lowest-ever Test score of 36, Gavaskar said any reaction to that score by Indian pundits would not have been quoted in Australian media.

Then why is the Indian media giving eth hipe to the thought of the English pundits, Gavaskar asked. Wasim Jaffer, who’s often brought his humor game to the fore, had on Wednesday posted a scripted conversation between the English cricketers as they set out to inspect the pitch a day ahead of the fourth Test.

There has been a plethora of discussion regarding the pitch conditions in the ongoing four-match series that has seen English and Indian experts take sides.

While former England cricketers Michael Vaughan, Alastair Cook, and Andrew Strauss wasn’t happy with the Motera pitch for the third Test that finished inside two days, the Indian skipper, Virat Kohli, Rohit Sharma, and Ravichandran Ashwin refuted claims of a doctored pitch and instead asserted that it was some poor application from the batsmen of both the teams as the reason behind a “bizarre” two-day Test.
