Michael Vaughan was pulling Wasim Jaffer's leg after India lost to South Africa.

India let go of a good opportunity to win the Test series in South Africa as they lost the final Test match in Cape Town and faced a 2-1 series defeat. South Africa chased down the target of 212 on Day 4 with 7 wickets in hand. 

India needed to take early wickets in the morning session of Day 4, but they could pick only 1 wicket. The Player-of-the-Match, Keegan Petersen (82 off 113) was the only one to be dismissed, but he had already done his job.

Former England captain Michael Vaughan poked Wasim Jaffer after India's loss and he posted a tweet asking the ex-India cricketer if he is fine or not. "Evening @WasimJaffer14 !! Just checking you are ok," the tweet read.

Jaffer responded to the tweet and reminded Vaughan that India is leading the Test series against them by 2-1. India and England will play the final Test match later this year after it was postponed last year due to the COVID-19 outbreak in the Indian camp.

"Haha all good Michael, don't forget we are still leading you 2-1," wrote Jaffer in his response.

India could have ended their wait of winning a Test series in South Africa this time. They had gone 1-0 up in the series after a win in Centurion against a relatively less experienced Proteas side. 

But the hosts fought back in the last two matches and kept their home record against India intact.
