IND vs SA: Fans React After Tabraiz Shamsi Mocked Delhi’s Weather

IND vs SA: The South African team had landed in Delhi for the first of the five T20I matches against India. After one of their practice sessions at the Arun Jaitley Stadium, they felt the heat of the hot weather and spinner Tabraiz Shamsi didn’t shy away from letting his fans know about the sweltering Delhi heat.

Tabraiz Shamsi Mocked Delhi’s Weather Ahead Of IND vs SA

Currently the number 1 ICC ranked T20I bowler, Tabraiz Shamsi took a sarcastic dig at the Delhi temperature, saying that it was only 42 degrees “cool” temperature which was not at all hot and uncomforting for the Proteas.

“Just a cool 42 degrees outside ..not hot at all lol,” Shamsi tweeted on Monday.

Check out Tabraiz Shamsi’s tweet on Delhi’s weather:

What no one saw coming was that this tweet from Shami sparked a temperature-tweet-fest between Indians and Pakistanis!

Plenty of fans from both nations reacted to Shamsi’s tweet with the temperatures of their cities and it led to a hilarious series of tweets.

Here are some of the best ones:

Tabraiz Shamsi will be a key figure for the visitors. He’s the numero uno ICC T20I bowler, by a distance and has been in this position for a while now. The chinaman has a number of variations, including a sharp googly.

Last year, 2021, Shamsi snapped up 36 wickets in 22 matches, his average of 13.36 and economy of 5.7 last year amongst the best a bowler has had across an entire year. He is expected to prove difficult to score against for the Indian batting line-up that will be missing Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli, and Suryakumar Yadav, who is regarded as one of the finest batsmen of spin bowling.

After the first T20I on Thursday, the teams fly to Cuttack for the second game on Sunday, followed by matches in Visakhapatnam, Rajkot and the series will conclude on June 19th in Bangalore.

South Africa squad:

Temba Bavuma (C), Quinton de Kock, Reeza Hendricks, Heinrich Klaasen, Keshav Maharaj, Aiden Markram, David Miller, Lungi Ngidi, Anrich Nortje, Wayne Parnell, Dwaine Pretorius, Kagiso Rabada, Tabraiz Shamsi, Tristan Stubbs, Rassie van der Dussen and Marco Jansen.
