Wasim Jaffer is ruling hearts on Twitter: Kings XI Punjab has finally found their way back to the league after suffering 6 defeats in the ongoing 13th edition of the Indian Premier League. KL Rahul led Kings XI Punjab have been giving back-to-back amazing performances. Last night, Kings XI Punjab won their fifth consecutive win by defeating KKR by 8-wickets.
As the game kickstarted yesterday at the Sharjah Cricket Stadium, KXIP won the toss and decided to bowl first. The bowlers of KXIP dominated the game from the word go and restricted the Kolkata Knight Riders to just 149 runs at the Sharjah International Cricket Stadium.
Mohammed Shami, Ravi Bishnoi, and Chris Jordan did phenomenal work with the ball and bundled up the KKR’s batting line-up. However, it was the performance of Mohammed Shami that stole the show tonight for KXIP.
Later, while chasing a target of 150 runs, KL Rahul and Mandeep Singh kickstarted the game brilliantly. However, KL Rahul was dismissed by Varun Chakravarthy on the 7.6 over with 28 runs in his account.
But Mandeep Singh and Chris Gayle held the game and formed a stunning partnership. Mandeep Singh remained unbeaten till the last ball and scored 66 off 56 balls, smashing 8 fours and 2 sixes. Chris Gayle, the Universe Boss, was at his best once again as he smashed the bowlers of KKR to all the corners of the ground. He scored 51 off 29 runs, smashing 2 fours and 5 sixes.
As soon as the game came to an end, social media was flooded with tweets applauding the performance of the Kings. From cricketers to cricket fans, everyone hailed the efforts made by the KXIP squad.
Among many, former Indian cricketer Wasim Jaffer also joined the bandwagon and shared a hilarious meme on Twitter. Replying to an old tweet of Salman Khan, that keeps resurfacing on social media that reads: “Zinta’s team won kya ?”
Replying to the viral tweet, Wasim used dialogue of Munnabhai MBBS and used it as a meme. Here, check out his reply:
