Wasim Jaffer Trolled Tim Paine Like A Boss On Twitter: Australian skipper Tim Paine has found himself at the receiving end of criticism and trolling for his wicketkeeping blunders that eventually gifted team India a memorable escape during the third test match at the Sydney Cricket Ground (SCG). Besides his keeping blunders, his behavior behind the stumps also came under the scanner after he confronted India’s all-rounder R Ashwin on Day 5.
Paine was caught constantly sledging R Ashwin during India’s innings, forcing the batsman to pull away on multiple occasions. Tim was even heard calling Ashwin a ‘dic*he*d’ at one point during these moments. Since then the cricketer has been getting brutally criticized by the cricket fraternity.
Although, Tim has publicly apologized for his behavior, but it is expected that the controversy might linger even during the upcoming Brisbane Test.
Meanwhile, former Indian cricketer Wasim Jaffer took a hilarious dig at Tim Paine and displayed his humorous side. It started after a fan asked Wasim Jaffer if he would ever sledge the Australians in the same way as a keeper. The fan wrote:
“Imagine Wasim bhai as a keeper sledging australian batsman”

Wasim Jaffer was quick to notice the tweet and come up with a reply to it. In his reply, Jaffer took a hilarious dig at Australian skipper Tim Paine as he trolled him for Paine’s sledging and wicketkeeping performance. Taking a dig at Paine, Jaffer said that he would get so involved in sledging that he would end up dropping catches. He wrote:
“My friend, I will be so involved in sledging I’ll end up dropping catches”
