Former India batsman Wasim Jaffer called spinner R Ashwin a 'First Bencher' in his hilarious post for the upcoming ICC World Test Championship (WTC) final. His post came after ICC released the playing conditions for the WTC final featuring India and New Zealand.

The playing conditions were 98 pages long and Jaffer used a funny meme from the movie Munna Bhai MBBS tagging Ashwin. He wrote Indian team asked Ashwin to read the playing conditions and explain them to the players.

"Tu samajhke apunko sikha dena," read the meme. Even Ashwin commented on the post and translated it for his fans who didn't get the meme. "Please read it thoroughly and let us know," the spinner wrote.

As per ICC, India, and New Zealand, both the team will share the trophy in case of a draw or a tie, and there's Reserve Day to make up for the loss of playing time.

The match is scheduled to be played from 18 to 22 June, with 23 June set aside as the Reserve Day. The match will be played using Grade 1 Dukes cricket balls.
