Former India opener Wasim Jaffer has become a happening social media personality. While his on-field behaviour never quite showed this side of him, his online presence has been entertaining as well as insightful for his followers. While he is quick to send memes and hilarious content revolving around Indian cricket, only one parallel comes to mind in international cricket and that happens to be former England captain Michael Vaughan. Both love to express their views on world cricket. But given that Vaughan's stance has more often than not been against India, the duo has shared a few cheeky moments.
However, on international friendship day, Jaffer wished Vaughan publicly on social media. Taking to Twitter, he wrote, "Happy friendship day @MichaelVaughan 😄 #FriendshipDay."
Check out his wish here:
Earlier, the social media war between the two former cricketers became evident when Vaughan was asked to name one cricketer he would block on social media and he replied Jaffer.
“Wasim Jaffer. To be honest, I wouldn’t block anyone. I block people who abuse me, trying to have a go at me, or someone, whose handle isn’t real,” Vaughan had said during an interaction with CricTracker.
However, Jaffer wasn't the one to stoop as he hit back at the Englishmen in his typical style. “Me and my friends after knowing @MichaelVaughan want to block me,” he captioned a photo of the Indian team celebrating after a Test series win.
Kane Williamson would be the "greatest player in the world" if....
However, Vaughan did not waste much time as he replied to the former cricketer by saying that no player whom he got out by his off-spin will ever be blocked by him.
"I would never do that Wasim … No player that got out to my filthy off-spin will ever be blocked,” Vaughan had written in reply to Jaffer.
Although the duo has had exchanges on social media for quite some time, it took an ugly turn after Vaughan's comment that Kane Williamson would be the "greatest player in the world," if he was an Indian.
He had also said that people term Kohli the greatest player to “get a few more clicks and likes.”
