India all-rounder Shardul Thakur has been ruled out of the second Test. The second Test match between India and England will take place on Thursday at the historic Lord’s Ground. Former India batsman Wasim Jaffer is very active on social media and his memes are wildly viral. Zafar tweeted about Shardul Thakur opting out of the Lord’s Test. Notably, Jafar cannot play the second Test due to a hamstring injury.
After Shardul Thakur quit the Lord’s Test, Jafar tweeted, “It would be sad if Shardul Thakur missed the Lord’s Test. He will not play the second Test, however, he will return in the third Test and the third Test will be played in Leeds from 25 August.
If Shardul Thakur missed the Lord’s test, it would be heartbreaking. So much so that cricketers don’t play in the stadium named after them #ENGVIND
