Indian batting might be suffering from inconsistency in Australia but it is fair to say that their former opener Wasim Jaffer is hitting everything out of the park on Twitter.

From posting hilarious memes to giving befitting replies, Jaffer has been in peak form on Twitter for some time now. And, the latest victim of his hilarious and witty replies is former Australian leg-spinner, Brad Hogg.

After the Indian batting-unit fell like nine pins in the first innings of the pink-ball warm-up Test despite having been given a good start by Prithvi Shaw and Shubman Gill, the ‘chinaman’ leg-spinner took to his official Twitter account where he advised the Indian top-order to take cognizance of where their off-stump is. He also asked to learn to leave the ball off a good length and not chase anything outside the off-stump,

“Indian top order need to know where their off stump is, learn to leave the ball off a good length, and not chase the ball moving away outside off stump,” Brad Hogg tweeted.

Wasim Jaffer took exception to the advice and went to reply that Australia currently needs to know who their top-order is, pointing to the home sides’ long growing injury list of the batsman. While David Warner and Will Pucovski have already been ruled out of the first Test, Joe Burns horrific form means the Aussies are still searching for their ideal opening partner to Marcus Harris, who has been added to the Test squad.

”Australia need to know who their top order is,” Wasim Jaffer wrote quoting Hogg’s tweet.

Meanwhile, India, on the back of a maiden FC fifty from Jasprit Bumrah, recovered from 9/123 to post 194 all-out. Indian fast bowlers then ran riot with the pink ball to dismiss Australia A for a poultry 108.

The Indians showed remarkable improvement in their batting in the second innings, with Mayank Agarwal [61], Shubman Gill [65] posting half-centuries. Hanuma Vihari is currently batting on 89 and he has Rishabh Pant for company, who has blazed his way to a 28-ball 39 with the help of two fours and three sixes.
