Former Australia spinner Brad Hogg has reacted to Wasim Jaffer’s dig at Australia’s batting order. The former cricketers were recently involved in a banter on Twitter which started after Brad Hogg criticised the batting technique of Team India’s top-order.
The ex-spinner made the comment after observing the batsmen in action during the ongoing tour game between Australia A and India. Brad Hogg pointed out that Indian top-order batsmen need to leave more deliveries outside off-stump against the moving ball.
“Indian top order need to know where they’re off stump is, learn to leave the ball off a good length, and not chase the ball moving away outside off stump,” Brad Hogg wrote on Twitter.

This is when Wasim Jaffer decided to take a dig at Australia’s top-order. The former India opener, who has been posting some hilarious tweets in recent times, hilariously pointed out that Australia don’t even know who their top-order batsmen are going to be in the first Test of the Border-Gavaskar series.
David Warner and Will Pucovski are already sidelined while Joe Burns is completely out of form. Australia have added Marcus Harris to their squad but things are not looking promising at all for the hosts. Taking a dig at their situation, Jaffer tweeted:

Brad Hogg’s reply”
A day after the banter on Twitter, Brad Hogg replied to Jaffer in a hilarious manner. The former spinner agreed with Jaffer’s views and cheekily wrote: ” Spot on Legend, looks like our openers are Burns out”

Well, Australia’s openers are definitely ‘Burns’ out as Joe Burns awful form continued on Sunday. After registering a duck in the first innings of the tour game, Joe Burns was out for just 1 in the second innings. He was also out for 0 in the first tour game. Harris failed to deliver too and departed for just 5 after scoring 26 in the first innings.
