With the season of the Indian Premier League upon us once again, Wasim Jaffer, crowned to be the social media king, has also made his return with yet another one of his iconic riddles.

This time around, he has kept it simple and has tweeted the image of a pink flamingo standing on one leg, in a shallow end of a beach.

Guess my player to watch out for tonight. I'll reveal the player at 6pm, but let's see how many decode it before that #MIvRCB #IPL2021 pic.twitter.com/9MvrF66Yxc

“Guess my player to watch out for tonight. I'll reveal the player at 6pm, but let's see how many decode it before that #MIvRCB #IPL2021,” wrote the former Indian batsman.

This means that the man Jaffer is talking about, belongs to either Rohit Sharma’s Mumbai Indians or Virat Kohli’s Royal Challengers Bangalore , which narrows down the answer to about 30 people.

With the given information in mind, the fans of tournament and T20 franchise cricket got to work and started offering their answers to Jaffer on Twitter.

Kyle Jamieson, I guess.

AB DE VILLIERS "MR. 360 degree"
since, he can equally hit all around the ground and a flamingo can bend in many directions in most unnatural ways

But then a couple of fans figured out Jaffer’s reference to the ‘Flamingo Block’ that New Zealand pacer Trent Boult had played on Day 5 of the first Test match against Australia at Adelaide way back in 2015 that had the cricketing world raising their eyebrows at the cricketer’s willow-wielding abilities.

One of the biggest reasons why Mumbai Indians seem to have a clear advantage over Bangalore is left-arm pace ace Boult and the statistical upper hand southpaw fast-bowlers have against RCB skipper Virat Kohli.

In the history of the IPL, Kohli has been dismissed a total of 30 times at the hands of the left-arm pacer and continues to have the worst dot-ball percentage against them, according to Hindustan Times

Having said that, the Chepauk stadium has not been kind to pacers in recent matches and the first two Tests of the India-England series have enough evidence to prove it. It would therefore make it very interesting to see how Boult uses his expertise to find a way to use the Chennai deck to his advantage in the season opener.

As of now, all we need to do is wait until 6PM for Jaffer to give out the answer to the riddle followed by enjoying a couple of hours of non-stop action as the two titans of the game lock horns once again.
