Team India was drubbed again by hosts Australia on Sunday in the second ODI at the Sydney Cricket Ground (SCG), handing the visitors their second loss in the span of two days at the same venue. Australia set a mammoth target of 390 runs that proved too much for the visitors as they were stopped at 338 for nine.
Australian Glenn Maxwell again played a superb knock against India in the second ODI on Sunday. Maxwell smashed an unbeaten 63 runs from 29 balls to take his team’s total to 389 for four.
His innings were studded with four boundaries and an equal number of sixes, two of which came in the final over of Navdeep Saini.
However, former Indian cricketer and Kings XI Punjab (KXIP) coach Wasim Jaffer took to Twitter to post a hilarious Bollywood inspired meme, taking a funny dig at Maxwell’s second successive crucial cameo against India. The veteran posted a meme featuring Naseeruddin Shah’s Gunaah Hai Yeh, dialogue inspired by the Hindi film Sarfarosh, which roughly translates to ‘It’s a crime’.
See the tweet here:
Jaffer tweet came in reference to Maxwell’s consecutive crucial knocks, after a poor outing in the recently concluded Indian Premier League (IPL) 2020 for the KXIP franchise. He even tagged the Australian all-rounder in his tweet.
Jaffer’s humorous take on Maxwell’s form received several funnier responses from users on the microblogging site. A few responses carried the humorous thread further by suggesting that Jaffer should exclude Maxwell from the franchise, to rehire him for a lesser fee. Here are some of the best one’s:
“Will he be retained” in the KXIP camp.
“100 Gunaah hai yeh,” said another.
100 गुन्हा हे ये 😅

Another user used a meme, poking fun back at Jaffer. The post features Hindi actor Akshay Kumar’s “Jali Na? Teri Jali Na,” which roughly translates to playfully teasing someone.
“Ladies and gentlemen, Twitter's meme Lord Crown,” wrote another user praising Jaffer’s hilarious memes.
