Finally, the day is here, which we all have been waiting for. The second leg of IPL 2021 will kick off later today with the MI-CSK clash at Dubai International stadium. With the players back to the ground, Wasim Jaffer is back too, to his own ground, Twitter. The former Indian batsman is well-known for his coded tweets that often leave the users confused. He has done the same for the El Clasico of IPL as he has hinted at players to watch out for in today’s game.
Wasim Jaffer shared a picture from the Bollywood movie ‘Darr’ with the caption, “Watchout for these 2 tonight. #CSKcMI #IPL 2021”. The picture had Juhi Chawla and Shah Rukh Khan which left the users all at sea as they tried to decode Jaffer’s secret message. After a lot of guessing, a user successfully decoded one of the two names. He identified the player as Mumbai’s Rahul Chahar (SRK’s character name in the movie). However, the second name became harder to guess as Juhi Chawla’s character name in the movie was Kiran Chawla and people got confused between Kieron Pollard and Piyush Chawla.
Have a look at Jaffer’s tweet and some reactions:
To make it a bit easier for you, Jaffer may be pointing towards Pollard as the West Indies all-rounder enjoys a great record against Chennai Super Kings. He averages 39.57 and has a strike rate of 175.32 in 21 IPL innings against CSK with the bat while has 14 wickets to his credit at an average of 26.50. Also, he single-handedly won the game for MI (87* off 34 balls) when both teams met during the first phase.
Bravo to miss today’s game
In the latest team news, it has been reported that Dwayne Bravo will not take the field today against MI as he has a groin injury. Australia’s Josh Hazlewood can replace him in the playing XI. Apart from Bravo, Sam Curran is also doubtful. Sam Curran has not yet completed his mandatory six-day quarantine as he arrived on 15 September.
