Former India opener Wasim Jaffer had come up with a witty meme when Axar Patel, Ishant Sharma and Mohammad Siraj got out in a jiffy, to deny Washington Sundar his maiden Test ton.
He had tweeted, “Axar, Ishant and Siraj next time they meet Washington’s father at a function. But seriously this 96* is no less than a hundred, very well played.”

But in turn, Sundar has come with an epic reply. “Thanks a lot bhaiya! Dad will definitely treat them with a lot of biryani and Halwa!”

Here is what Murali Karthik had said on air, when Sundar got out.
“You could feel that pain, Washington Sundar head down and turns towards the dressing room, batted so well for his 96. Tantalisingly so close to that personal milestone. He will get there, not today but soon now,” Deep Dasgupta said.
“What an outstanding innings from him, he bowled well, he got the chance and every time he has come out to bat he has looked apart. Washington Sundar 96, you have to feel for him. It was as if he himself got out the way he walked away,” Murali Karthik added.
