For a section of the cricket lovers, it has become a routine to look out for Wasim Jaffer's tweet and try and decode the players to watch out for in the IPL match on that day. The former India opener also rarely disappoints with his memes and posts and has continued his tradition of posting cryptic memes as he named two players to watch out for in the match between Royal Challengers Bangalore and Chennai Super Kings on Friday.
While a part of his picture showed a one hundred US dollar note, the other half shows bright sunshine falling upon a house surrounded by lush green fields and gardens. While the cryptic tweet may appear a little difficult for some, nothing is impossible for the passionate Indian fans who have guessed the answers. While there is more or less consensus regarding the first name which is AB de Villiers as Benjamin happens to be the middle name of the South African cricketer and Benjamin Franklin is the man on the 100 US dollars note, netizens are divided over the second name.
Some have answered Ravindra Jadeja while others have even named Shardul Thakur. Jaffer is yet to confirm the names which he does usually before the start of play in the evening.

Meanwhile, it hasn't been an ideal start to the UAE leg of IPL 2021 for Jaffer's Punjab Kings. Notably, the legend of Indian first-class cricket is the current batting coach of the KL Rahul-led side and wouldn't be pleased in the manner in which they failed to score eight runs in the final two overs against Rajasthan Royals despite having eight wickets in hand.
With 6 points from 9 matches, the Punjab franchise would now have to win each of their five remaining matches to keep the fate of their campaign in their own hands. However, in the manner in which they have faltered near the finish line on numerous occasions in recent times, they will have a mountain to climb from here if they are aiming at a Playoffs berth.
