Former India cricketers Wasim Jaffer and Zaheer Khan engaged in a healthy banter on social media. It all started after Zaheer tweeted the rarity of India winning three tosses in a row.
India hasn't been lucky with the toss, but in the recently concluded three-match T20I series against New Zealand, Rohit Sharma won all three tosses as India defeated the Kiwis by 3-0.
"Still can't believe India won three out of three tosses in the recent series. Did the coins have a secret chip, just like the currency notes? Just kidding, can you recall more such rare moments? PS: Only Cricketers can reply," tweeted Zaheer.
Jaffer responded to the tweet with a scorecard in which he had better bowling figures than Zaheer. "Yes winning 3 tosses in a row is rare but not as rare as Wasim Jaffer having better bowling figures than Zaheer Khan," he joked.
It seemed like Zaheer was ready to give it back to his former India teammate. He replied with another scorecard in which Jaffer had scored a duck, while he outscored him. "Equally rare is Zaheer Khan outscoring @WasimJaffer14 in not one but both innings of a test match! ????," he tweeted.
Jaffer ended the banter by reminding Zaheer that he didn't get to bowl in every match. "Wasim Jaffer doesn't get to bowl every test but Zaheer Khan gets to bat (almost) every test," the response read.
