Former Indian test opener during 2000s Wasim Jaffer , known to produce intigruing tweets , came up with another brain teaser after England hammered India in the 2nd ODI.
Jaffer’s tweet below has some indicative words below the captioned picture which gives a hint of the replacements in the Indian XI for the 3rd ODI that he is suggesting.
The photo caption read: “Chess players can be seen in the late afternoon sun in Washington Square Park in Greenwich Village, Manhattan, NY”.
He also tagged skipper Virat Kohli to wish him luck for the match and as always, asked his followers to solve the puzzle. “Chess players can be seen in the late afternoon sun in Washington Square Park in Greenwich Village, Manhattan, NY,” said Jaffer in the tweet.
The netizens didn’t take long to decode the message and understood that Jaffer is asking for the inclusion of Yuzvendra Chahal, Suryakumar Yadav, and Washington Sundar.
The words “chess players” refer to leg-spinner Chahal, who played chess from 1997 to 2003 before taking on cricket as a profession.
Jaffer used the name of a park in NY to allude to the inclusion of all-rounder Sundar, while “sun” referred to Suryakumar Yadav’s inclusion in the third ODI
The intelligent and brain storming tweet came after India’s thrashing in the hands of Ben Stokes and Johny Bairstow as the England pair blew away the Indian spin duo of Kuldeep and Krunal leaving their immediate international future in jeopardy.
