Wasim Jaffer has been illuminating the cricketing Twitter world with his hilarious memes on several occasion. This time around, the former cricketer has outdone himself by sending out a coded tweet for stand-in skipper Ajinkya Rahane that contains selection advice for the Boxing Day Test.

Team India will have to make two changes at the least due to the absence of Virat Kohli and Mohammed Shami. The performances of Prithvi Shaw and Wriddhiman Saha might lead the team to introduce more changes to face the Australians in Melbourne.

While pundits all over the globe have suggested their input in a straightforward manner, Wasim Jaffer opted for a slightly out of the box approach to let his opinion out.

The former batsman tweeted the following “hidden” message meant for Ajinkya Rahane, but he also invited the fans to have a crack at it and decode the text. The random words read together do not shed much meaning.

“Dear @ajinkyarahane88, here’s a (hidden) message for you. Good luck for Boxing Day! People In Cricket Know Grief In Life Lingers Aplenty Never Dabble Rise And Handcraft Unique Legacy PS: you guys are open to have a go and decode the msg too. #INDvsAUS #AUSvIND,”

If the first letter of each word is taken, it reads “PICK GILL AND RAHUL”. Much like almost all of his tweets, the fans loved the unique idea and is running viral at the moment.

In the absence of Kohli, there is expected to be a slight shuffle in the batting order with either Ajinkya Rahane promoting himself to No.4 or the incoming KL Rahul taking the spot.

Moreover, the introduction of a pacer is imminent due to the absence of Shami, the team have two choices to pick from in the form of Mohammad Siraj and Navdeep Saini.

Prithvi Shaw has received a lot of flak for his identical dismissals and the lack of technique behind it and as a result could see his spot being taken over by Shubman Gill, who had a stellar warm-up game.
