Wasim Jaffer Does A Cheeky Dig In ICC’s T20I Men’s Team Of The Decade With A Meme Ft MS Dhoni


After the International Cricket Council (ICC) announced the Men’s T20I Team of the Decade, many fans and experts were surprised at the lack of bowling options, with only three frontline bowlers finding a place on the team. Former India opener Wasim Jaffer, who has become famous for his witty tweets, took a look at the roster, but in a subtle way – with a meme featuring MS Dhoni. Adjusting Dhoni’s famous response at IPL 2020, Jaffer questioned the inclusion of just three specialist bowlers on the team. “Only 3 front line bowlers ?!” Hey MS, who picked this team? “# ICCAwards2020 #Dhoni,” Jaffer tweeted, sharing the meme. In response to his IPL retirement speculations, Dhoni had cleared the air by saying “absolutely not,” while Jaffer adapted his response in his meme that was “absolutely blunt.”

On Sunday, the ICC announced the men’s and women’s teams of the decade in various formats. Former Indian skipper MS Dhoni was included in both ODI and T20I teams as a wicket-keeper and was also made captain of both teams.

While the T20I team with Dhoni in the lead included several power hitters such as Chris Gayle, AB de Villiers, Kieron Pollard among others, it was seriously lacking in the bowling department with only Lasith Malinga, Jasprit Bumrah and Rashid Khan on the side only with specialist bowlers. .


Like Jaffer, former India opener Aakash Chopra was also amazed at the inclusion of “only three real bowlers” in the team. In response to ICC’s tweet, he wrote, “Only three real bowlers ??? Seriously ??”.

In fact, he went a step further, saying Dhoni will refuse to lead a team with only three specialized bowlers in it.

“Dhoni will refuse to lead a team with only 3 real bowlers,” Aakash Copra said, responding to a fan’s question on the microblogging site.

The ICC will announce the players of the decade in different formats in a virtual ceremony on Monday.
