Former England skipper Michael Vaughan, on Tuesday, July 12, invited Wasim Jaffer over for tea in a hilarious manner. The reason why the veteran called Jaffer was because England suffered a massive batting collapse in the opening ODI at the Kennington Oval in London. The Brits were bowled out for 110 in 25.2 overs after being out in to bat first.
In the first 10 overs, half of the English batting lineup went back to the hut. Joe Root, Jason Roy and Ben Stokes failed to open their accounts. Jos Buttler scored in the 30s, but he didn’t get much support from the others. From being reduced to 26 for 5, the home team failed to gather any sort of momentum.
Vaughan, in the meantime, asked Jaffer over for tea. The veteran took to Twitter and wrote, “Fancy coming round for Tea @WasimJaffer14 !! Think I have an evening free …. #ENGvIND.”

Jasprit Bumrah picked up six wickets for 19 runs and broke the backbone of the England batting line. After the pacer picked up four early wickets in his opening spell, Jaffer dropped a funny tweet to congratulate the speedster from Ahmedabad.
Jaffer took to Twitter and wrote, “Alexa, please play Jasprit Bumrah. Sorry, Jasprit Bumrah is unplayable.”
Bumrah became the 11th Indian bowler to pick up a six-wicket haul in ODI cricket. He currently is third in the list of best bowling figures by an Indian bowler in 50-over cricket. Stuart Binny and Anil Kumble hold the top two positions.
Prasidh Krishna got the all-important wicket of Moeen Ali, who could have done a lot of damage with the bat in hand.
