Former India opener Wasim Jaffer took a dig at England’s batting line-up after their below-par show in the first ODI match at Kennington Oval in London on Tuesday. Incidentally, the hosts got rattled for a paltry 110 after Indian captain Rohit Sharma asked them to bat first after winning the toss.

Jasprit Bumrah was at his lethal best with the new ball as he dismissed four England batters in powerplay overs while three of them were dismissed on ducks. He returned with his career-best figures of 6/19, which is the third-best bowling figures by an Indian in ODIs after Stuart Binny (6/4) and Anil Kumble (6/12).

Mohammed Shami also supported well, picking up three wickets. He also became the fastest Indian to scale 150 ODI wickets, overtaking Ajit Agarkar. Prasidh Krishna picked up the remaining wicket to bowl out England within 25.2 overs.

While India derailed the English batting, Michael Vaughan and Wasim Jaffer were at loggerheads, continuing their funny Twitter exchanges. During the match, Vaughan took to Twitter and wrote, “Fancy coming round for Tea @WasimJaffer14!! Think I have an evening free …. #ENGvIND.”

Jaffer, who is known to set social media on fire with his witty posts, hit back at the former England captain. Replying to Vaughan’s post, Wasim Jaffer wrote, “Haha sure Michael, just let me get my ducks in a row first #ENGvIND.”

“Sorry, Jasprit Bumrah is unplayable” – Wasim Jaffer lauds Indian pacer

Jaffer was also impressed with Jasprit Bumrah’s fierce spell in the first ODI as he took to Twitter to praise the pacer with a humorous post. Taking to Twitter, the former cricketer wrote:

“Alexa, please play Jasprit Bumrah. Sorry, Jasprit Bumrah is unplayable” #ENGvIND.” 

Chasing a small total, Rohit and Shikhar stitched an unbeaten century partnership and led India to a convincing 10-wicket win in the 18.4 overs. Rohit hit six fours and five sixes in his 58-ball unbeaten 76, while Dhawan finished on 31 not out off 54, having hit the winning boundary.
