Wasim Jaffer got here up with a hilarious response to former England skipper Michael Vaughan’s cheeky remarks on Virat Kohli, the place he in contrast the Indian skipper with the New Zealand captain Kane Williamson.
Hitting again on the former English cricketer, Jaffer made a reference of Bollywood actor Hrithik Roshan and tweeted: “Extra ungli Hrithik ke paas hai par karta Michael Vaughan hai.”

The tweet in Hindi if roughly translated into English means, ‘Vaughan unnecessarily tries to poke his nostril in enterprise that has nothing to do with him.’
Earlier within the day, Vaughan claimed that Kiwi skipper Williamson is barely behind his Indian counterpart due to his nationality.
“If Kane Williamson was Indian, he could be the best participant on the earth. But he’s not since you’re not allowed to say that Virat Kohli isn’t the best, since you’d get an absolute pelting on social media. So, you all say Virat is one of the best purely to get few extra clicks and likes, few extra numbers following right here. Kane Williamson, throughout codecs, is equally one of the best. I believe the best way he performs, the calm manner, his humbleness, the truth that he’s silent about what he does,” Vaughan instructed Spark Sport.
“I think recently, a lot of pundits have been shouting for him, whether he likes that or not, I’m not too sure. In English conditions, against the moving ball, Virat did enjoy success the last time he came in, but other than that he has struggled. Kane Williamson has mostly had success. I’m not just saying it because I’m speaking to you guys in New Zealand but I think Kane Williamson is right up there with the great players across the three formats and certainly matches Virat Kohli. It’s just that he doesn’t have the 100 million followers on Instagram and doesn’t earn the $30-40 million or whatever Virat gets every year for his commercial endorsements. But in terms of quality and what he brings on the pitch and his consistency, I wouldn’t back against Kane Williamson getting more runs. I think Kane may score a few more runs than Virat this summer,” he added.
Both Kohli and Williamson will lead their respective sides within the summit conflict of the ICC World Test Championship’s remaining, which is ready to happen in Southampton.
