After a number of injuries, and a plenty of drama happening after the third test between India and Australia in January 2021, Indian team were looked as a very weak side, with all the key players injured, before going to the final encounter at the Gabba. But, the Indian team shook the cricket fans all around the world with their performance in the final game, where the Indian team had a very bad record in the past, and they changed it, with a spectacular win. The test had everyone contributing in the game, at some point of time. Washington Sundar and Shardul Thakur scored 129 runs combined, in a game saving partnership. Rishabh Pant has been the star of the series, and also won the game in the chase of the 2nd innings, where India looked to have lost the plot and the game as well. This series will be well remembered for ages, where Virat’s absence and a plethora of injuries couldn’t fade away India’s triumph.
The former Indian cricketer, who is at present the batting coach of Punjab Kings in IPL has been proactive in the social media platform, Twitter. His sense of humour has been liked by many and his tweets gain tractions among cricket enthusiasts as well as general Indian public, This time he has trolled Australian opener Marcus Harris on his remark made for Indian test batsman Cheteshwar Pujara. The below statement was made by Marcus Harris on the batting performance of Pujara and Pant in 4th test betwene India and Australia, where the former scred 56 off 211 balls.
“The final day was amazing to watch. We were thinking the whole day if they would go for the runs or not. I think Rishabh played the best innings that day, but for Pujara to be copping an absolute barrage from everyone, it felt like he batted like an Australian, taking everything on the chest and getting on with it. The rest of the team just batted around him,” said Australian opener Harris on ‘Cricket Life Stories’ channel on Youtube.
Jaffer was quick to troll Australian opener for his remark on Twitter:
Harris made his test debut against India in 2018 at Gabba after 7 years of hardwork in the domestic circuit. He scored two half-centuries in the series and proved himself but soon lost his place to the Australian stalwart David Warner who returned to the team after the ban due to the ball tampering incident. In the series against India in 2020, he remained in the sidelines due to the presence of the experienced batsman, Joe Burns who performed the role of an opener. In 10 test matches, he has amassed 428 runs at an average of 23.8 and is likely to be a permanent candidate in the tour as well as home series for few years due to his track record.
