On Tuesday, former Indian opening player Wasim Jaffer cheered former England captain Kevin Petersen on his England B tweet, where he brazenly congratulated the Indian team on a staggering 317 draw victory in Chennai to tie a series of four 1-1 tests.
It took a little more than an Indian session on the fourth day to fill the remaining seven England batsmen and win the draw to tie the series and gain an advantage in the race to the World Cup final.
“Badhai ho india, England B Ko harane ke liye,” Pietersen wrote on Twitter after India’s victory.
Jaffer replied, “Don’t troll the KP boys. He’s just trying to be funny. And I understand that. I even want to say if he’s a full England team if there are no SA players?”
Petersen later added, “That’s right! Trot is there, and Kalis was there!”
The hero of the historic victory in England in 2012 in India also won the England and Wales (ECB) cricket board because of his strange policy of rotation. “You don’t choose your best team in the hardest place to win a test match, in fact you can’t even show emotion to it,” Petersen wrote.
However, Ruth refused to blame the policy of rotation and selection of the team as the reason for the crushing defeat.
“My job is to manage the team of players we have here and try to do my best. I think we have great players and a team of players who are more than able to win here,” Ruth told a news conference. after the match. “As soon as our team is transferred, it is my responsibility to try to bring out the best and try to win as many games as possible.”
England will face India in the third test, a day-night race, at Mottera Stadium in Ahmedabad, starting on February 24.
