Sunday’s Test at Lord’s ended in a draw for the first time in 13 years between England and New Zealand.

However, on the final day, New Zealand opened the batting on a high note and scored over 100 runs in the first session, giving England a total of 273 runs from 75 overs. England, instead of pursuing the win, chose a more conservative approach. On the last day of the Lord’s Test, former India batsman Wasim Jaffer went on Twitter to share his thoughts on England’s batting.

“No points to gain means you’re not going to try to catch a target of 3.6 an over at home, and if you won’t even try to do that, how can you expect to succeed in other situations? No good advertisement for test cricket in the country of England or New Zealand “Jaffer used a meme from the 1997 film ‘Hera Pheri’ in his tweet.
