However, Both men have been known to pull the leg of each other on the social media platform over the years, especially during India vs England matches.
In the 20-20 World Cup 2022, England thrashed team India in the semi-final by 10 wickets. After the match, both got involved in a funny interaction on Twitter. Michael Vaughan wrote: “So @WasimJaffer14… Your forfeit… You must film yourself singing ‘Jos Buttler’s Barmy army’ and post on here please .. Unlucky .. it was a close game.”
In reply, Wasim Jaffer appreciated England’s effort by calling them superb. He wrote: “I see you’re having a ball on here. And fair enough too, England were superb. But I’m not following you… I don’t recall agreeing to film anything.. and please help me here, I know Jos Buttler, but what’s a Barmy army?” Then, the former England skipper came up with a screenshot of Jaffer’s profile where it showed follows you.
