Punjab Kings batting coach Wasim Jaffer was undoubtedly delighted after his team won their opening contest against Rajasthan Royals in a run-fest in Mumbai. As the action shifts to Chennai for the match against high-flying Kolkata Knight Riders and defending champions Mumbai Indians on Tuesday, the 43-year-old came up with a mysterious tweet where he named the players to watch out for the exciting contest.
Jaffer’s puzzling prediction decoded
The former Indian batsman is known for posting some extremely curious tweets related to the selection of players. The fans really enjoy decoding his tweets and they have successfully done the same once again. Ahead of KKR vs MI clash, Jaffer named two players to watch out for ‘ah mint’ and ‘anger nomoi’. While there were a few people who couldn’t figure it out, the others put on their thinking hats and solved it. As it turned out, the 43-year-old had jumbled up the names of the captains of both sides.
ah mint (jumbled) –> hitman (decoded)

All eyes on Rohit and Morgan in Chennai
Talking about Jaffer’s players to watch out for, Rohit Sharma and Eoin Morgan will have to step up for the crucial contest on Tuesday. Both the skippers had a relatively disappointing start to IPL 2021 with the bat. While Hitman was unfortunately run-out against RCB at a score of 19 runs, Morgan could only score 2 runs against SRH. With two of the most charismatic captains locking horns tonight, they would be hoping to lead their respective sides from the front.
