Hours ahead of the Punjab Kings’ season opener against Rajasthan Royals, Wasim Jaffer – who has become a social media sensation – took to Twitter inspired by a Salman Khan old tweet. Expressing his desire to win, Jaffer said he wishes to reply with a ‘yes’ to Salman. During the 2014 edition, Salman – who is close to Preity Zinta – had asked her if her IPL franchise had won.

As a friend, Salman was enquiring.

Jaffer captioned the matchday post, “Our campaign starts today. My only wish is that I get to quote tweet this Salman Khan tweet with ‘Yes’ more often this season.”

Meanwhile, the IPL clash between Punjab and Rajasthan promises to be a high-scoring affair as both sides boast of big-hitters. Fans could be in for a six fest.
