Former India opener Wasim Jaffer gives an epic reply to Australian media ‘Channel 7’

Former India opener Wasim Jaffer has given an epic response to Australian media Channel 7 for their dig at Virat Kohli’s batting form. Virat Kohli did not have a good time in Test cricket in 2021, finishing with 536 runs from 11 matches including four half-centuries at a very low average of 28.21, in comparison to his overall average which goes in excess of 50.

7Cricket posted a tweet stating that since the beginning of 2019, Kohli has an average of 37.17 in Tests, which is lower that that of Mitchell Starc’s 38.63. Tweeting this along with a picture collage of Starc and Kohli, 7Cricket wrote ‘stat of the day’.

Jaffer came up with a quick witted response to this! “ODI Career batting average: Navdeep Saini: 53.50, Steve Smith: 43.34,” Jaffer tweeted. Quite true actually, Saini possesses a higher batting average than the star Australia batter. In five ODI innings, Saini scored 107 runs with a highest score of 45 against New Zealand.
