Wasim Jaffer used his trademark cryptic way to indicate his playing XI for India in their T20 World Cup opening clash against Pakistan on Sunday. Jaffer, who was part of Punjab Kings, used IPL team logos to indicate his XI.
Jaffer used four Mumbai Indians logos, two logos each of Chennai Super Kings and Punjab Kings and one each of Delhi Capitals, Kolkata Knight Riders and Royal Challengers Bangalore.
The former India opener picked Varun Chakravarthy over Ravichandran Ashwin and Rahul Chahar as the spinner alongside Ravindra Jadeja.
Jaffer’s XI also didn’t have Bhuvneshwar Kumar and had Shardul Thakur, Mohammed Shami and Jasprit Bumrah as the three seamers.
