ENG v IND 2021: 'Bring it on', Wasim Jaffer's witty response to Barmy Army's challenge for Virat Kohli

Team India will be taking on England in a five-match Test series from August 4.

Virat Kohli | GettyAs the five-match Test series between powerhouse India and hosts England is just two weeks away, Barmy Army, the famous English fan-based group that supports the three lions' team from the stands, put up a social media post on Thursday asking Virat Kohli whether he's ready to take on the English side.

In reply, former India cricketer Wasim Jaffer who is known for his sarcastic and extremely funny tweets, posted a meme from a famous television show ‘Game of Thrones’.

Why do you think I came all this way?” read the text in the image posted by Jaffer which consisted of Virat Kohli's name over the meme's protagonist, Bran Stark's head, with a 'King' emoji.

Have a look at Wasim Jaffer’s reply on Twitter:

After a well-needed break post the World Test Championship (WTC) final against New Zealand in July, Virat Kohli and Co. are getting ready to take on Joe Root-led England side in the five-Test series slated to begin from 4 August at Trent Bridge in Nottingham.

After the first Test match, the remainder of matches will be played at Lord’s in London (from 12 August), Headingley in Leeds (from 25 August), Kennington Oval in London (from 2 September) and Old Trafford in Manchester (from September 10) respectively that too possibly in front of a full capacity crowd.
