Former Indian cricketer Wasim Jaffer is the undisputable king of social media, without a doubt. The 43-year-old is quite famous for posting some of the most hilarious and engaging content around cricket, and fans absolutely love his sense of humour. While he is usually quite fun-loving with his comments on the micro-blogging site, he doesn't shy away from silencing users who try to act smart.
Social media is such a platform where one can have lot of fun through memes and funny comments. However, it brings with itself the culture of trolling where fans sometimes cross their limits while interacting with famous people. There are times when they get a mouth-shutting reply from the person they were trying to troll and an instance of the same was recently seen with Wasim Jaffer.
Fan alleges Jaffer for speaking in favour of Pakistan
It all started when Jaffer gave his opinion on England & Wales Cricket Board (ECB) opting to pull out from their upcoming tour of Pakistan, citing security concerns. He tweeted, "The @TheRealPCB have every reason to be disappointed with the ECB. Pak and WI toured England last year during pandemic before vaccines. England owes so much to both Pak and WI. Least ECB could do is not cancel the reciprocal tours. There are no winners when cricket is cancelled."
It was a genuine and justified comment from Jaffer as he spoke as a neutral cricket expert. However, some section of fans did not like the fact that he was commenting in favour of Pakistan. This is when a Twitter user replied to him, "Wasim bhai wahi hai jo India Pakistan ke match main Pakistan ko cheer karte hai in the name of sporting spirit"
Jaffer silences the fan in style
The former Indian cricketer did not have any angry reaction to the shameful tweet by the user. Instead, he replied in a very classy way with the scoreboard of Test match played between India and Pakistan in 2007 in Kolkata. In the match, Jaffer had smashed a brilliant double hundred (202 off 274) against a strong Pakistan bowling attack. It was just the perfect response from a former cricketer who gave everything for his country when he stepped on the field.
It looked like that the Twitter user was left embarrassed with Jaffer's response as he deleted his tweet later on.
