Former Indian cricketer Wasim Jaffer, known for his hilarious memes and suggestions on social media platforms, came again into the limelight. In his latest post, Jaffer explained how to tackle New Zealand bowler Kyle Jamieson, who has always enjoyed success over Indian batters in Test cricket.
To negate the Jamieson threat, Jaffer posted a photo and said there should be a “height limit” outside the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai- the venue for the ongoing second and final Test match between India and New Zealand.
“One way to negate the Jamieson threat could be to put this height limit outside Wankhede,” Jaffer captioned his post.
