Australian opening batsman Usman Khawaja’s sheer dominance with the bat has stunned India, as the left-hander has showcased brilliant form to help his side to a remarkable ODI series win away from home. Khawaja was at his belligerent best once again in the final game, as he hammered a century at a healthy strike rate.
Khawaja’s prolific batting has won admiration from various people, however, he also received a tweet of appreciation from Pakistan’s DG ISPR Major-General Asif Ghafoor. Penning a tweet from his personal account, the military officer gave his analysis on the game, describing Khawaja’s innings as the match-winning knock that allowed Australia to post such a daunting total.
Meanwhile, Mr. Ghafoor also took a sly dig at the Indian team, indulging in some humorous wordplay by indirectly referencing to the army caps worn by India during the third ODI. This tweet comes amidst heightened political tensions between India and Pakistan.
