The infamous moment Nasser Hussain winning the toss at Gabba in 2002 and choosing to bowl

England’s two great cricketers in Nasser Hussain and James Anderson embroiled in hilarious banter on Twitter. The funny conversation was with regards to the infamous 2002 Gabba test against Australia, which left the fans laughing.

Hussain mentioned that he was putting together top-10 moments featuring England after being asked by a sports broadcaster from 1990-2020. He picked England's historic World Cup victory last year, saying he needs nine more such moments.

"Break could just add on a year or two to my career", says James Anderson

Sky Sports then pitched in with Hussain celebrating one and only ODI century, which came against India in the 2002 NatWest series final. To this, the former England skipper wrote: "Looking at 8 more now

Well, his former teammate James Anderson took note of the ongoing moments’ theme and decided to remind Hussain of his decision to bowl first on a road of a pitch at Gabba, Brisbane on the 2002 Ashes tour to Australia. England ended up losing the Test by 384 runs and lost the series 1-4.

Hussain wasn’t the one to take the jibe lying down and replied with a parody toss video of Anderson and former spinner Graeme Swann where the fast-bowler was seen mimicking Hussain and the latter impersonating Ian Chappell, who was with the broadcasters at the time.

Hussain's post read: "I still think this is a better version of that fateful morning."
