Former Indian batsman Wasim Jaffer has posted a cryptic message for Indian skipper Virat Kohli and the Indian team management to suggest changes in the playing XI of team India for the third ODI. Jaffer, who began his second innings on Twitter after having an illustrious domestic career, has once again left the fans baffled.
Team India were brutally thrashed by England in the second ODI of the three-match series on Friday, as the Englishmen beat them by 6 wickets to level the ODI series 1-1. The Indian bowlers were bashed all around the MCA Stadium in Pune as Jason Roy, Jonny Bairstow, and Ben Stokes came up with one of their best knocks in the 50-over format.
Wasim Jaffer Posts A Cryptic Tweet To Suggest Changes In The Indian Playing XI For The 3rd ODI
The poorest among the bowlers were the Indian spin duo of Kuldeep Yadav and Krunal Pandya. Hardik Pandya has not bowled in the ODI series so far and the impact of team India going with a less bowler in the first eleven was quite visible on Friday. While Kuldeep gave away 84 runs in his 10 overs, Krunal Pandya went for 72 runs in the 6 overs that he bowled with both the bowlers going wicketless.
Now, former Indian batting legend, Wasim Jaffer has come up with interesting changes for the Indian team to include in their playing XI for the third ODI against England. On Saturday, Wasim Jaffer posted a cryptic tweet with a photo and wrote, “Good morning @imVkohli a photo to brighten up your morning. And yes, good luck for the game tomorrow”

By this tweet, Jaffer clearly wanted to state that he thinks that Yuzvendra Chahal should be included in the playing XI and so must be Washington Sundar. Fans have been busy decoding the former Indian legend over his cryptic message. However, this is not the first time that Jaffer has come up with such a hilarious message.
Team India Beaten By England
The India National Cricket Team were bashed brutally by England in the second ODI of the three-match series. After losing the toss, the Men in Blue were invited to bat first and they used the opportunity with both hands as KL Rahul came up with a century and Indian skipper Virat Kohli and Rishabh Pant came up with half-centuries to help India post 336 runs for the loss of 6 wickets in their 50 overs.
However, the Indian bowlers once again failed to deliver the goods. Only Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Prasidh Krishna were able to clinch the wickets as the English team chased down the gigantic total in just 43.3 overs to win the game and level the series. Now, the final ODI of the series will take place on March 28 and whichever team wins it, will eventually win the series.
