As Wasim Jaffer turned 44 on Wednesday, wishes poured in for the former India batter on social media. Jaffer, who is known for his social media banter with former England skipper Michael Vaughan, recently quit his role as the batting coach of Indian Premier League (IPL) franchise Punjab Kings. On Jaffer’s birthday, former India pacer Munaf Patel wished the the former India opening batter with a tongue-in-cheek remark. Taking to Twitter, Munaf described Jaffer as the Sachin Tendulkar of the micro-blogging site.
“Happy Birthday to Sachin Tendulkar of Twitter. Wishing you a Very Healthy life ahead Bhai,” Munaf captioned a post on Twitter.
