“Write his name on sand and not yet on paper”: Wasim Jaffer backs Pat Cummins for captaincy with a cocky comment

Former India opener Wasim Jaffer is popular nowadays for his humorous and witty comments on social media.

On Monday, Jaffer was at his best again with a cheeky comment on the Australian speedster, Pat Cummins. The former cricketer trolled Cummins over the reopened Sandpaper saga.

Recently, Cummins teammate Cameron Bancroft was in the news for his comments that hinted at the involvement of bowlers in the Sandpaper incident.

Jaffer was asked to comment on Cummins’ captaincy changes in the team by a Twitter user.

Since, the current Australian Test captain, Tim Paine, has hinted about his retirement plans after the 2021-22 Ashes, the question about his successor has grabbed the attention of many fans around the world.

The Punjab Kings (PBKS) coach is often seen sharing his opinions and also taking a dig at cricketers on the social media platform Twitter.

“@WasimJaffer14 what do you think will Cummins become Aus captain?,” the Twitter user quizzed the Ranji legend on Twitter.

Taking cognizance of the question, the 43-year-old replied that Cummins is one of the front runners to captain the Australian side. He ended his statement with a hilarious twist recalling the infamous Sandpaper gate.

“He’s one of the frontrunners. But write his name in sand and not yet on paper,” Jaffer said.

Jaffer's hilarious reply to the question

Though the former Indian opener later deleted the tweet, his response soon became the talk of the town on social media.

Jaffer’s response was in reference to the ball-tampering scandal that happened on Australia’s tour to England in 2018. Bancroft was banned for nine months for his involvement, while Steve Smith and David Warner were barred from playing any competitive cricket for 12 months by Cricket Australia (CA).

Meanwhile, CA is closing in on reopening an investigation into the matter, with calls for the same coming from all corners.

AB de Villiers gives final verdict on his international comeback for South Africa

Last month, South African batting legend AB de Villiers had hinted towards making an international comeback for the upcoming T20 World Cup 2021 scheduled to be held in India later this year. However, the latest developments have dimmed the chances of De Villiers’ return as Cricket South Africa (CSA) has revealed that the former Proteas skipper has decided that his retirement will remain final.

On Tuesday, CSA announced in a release that discussions with de Villiers have concluded, and the batter has decided not to make a comeback.

“Discussions with AB de Villiers have concluded with the batsman deciding once and for all, that his retirement will remain final,” CSA said in its statement.

De Villiers bid farewell to international cricket in May 2018 but has been quite active in franchise T20 tournaments. He was recently spotted in the now-postponed Indian Premier League (IPL) 2021, showing all his class while representing Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB).

During that time, De Villiers had revealed that he had been in talks with Mark Boucher, head coach of CSA, concerning his return in the international arena.

“I haven’t had a discussion with Bouchy (Mark Boucher) yet. We are lined up to have a chat somewhere during the IPL, but yes, we have been talking about it. Last year, he asked me if I would be interested. And I said, ‘absolutely’. And come to the end of the IPL, we will have a look at where we are regarding my form and my fitness. Also, the situation with his team – he’s got to look at his guys who have been performing well over the last while,” the Pretoria lad had said.

De Villiers played 114 Tests, 228 ODIs and 78 T20 Internationals (T20Is) for South Africa, amassing 8765, 9577, and 1672 runs, respectively.
