Former India cricketer Zaheer Khan recently took a jibe at controversial TV anchor Sudhir Chaudhary and Aaj Tak anchor Shweta Singh, reminding them of the old claims of nanochip in the new Rs 2,000 note. There was no response from Sudhir Chaudhary and Shweta Singh on Khan’s tweet, but his old teammate in the Indian team Wasim Jaffer wrote something that his trapped could not stop laughing.

Reacting to India winning the toss in all three T20 Internationals against New Zealand, Zaheer wrote, “Still can’t believe India won three out of three tosses in the recent series. Did the coins have a secret chip, just like the currency notes. Just kidding, can you recall more such rare moments? PS: Only Cricketers can reply.”
Jaffer reminded Khan of how he had once achieved a better bowling average than the former India pacer. Jaffer wrote, “Yes winning 3 tosses in a row is rare but not as rare as Wasim Jaffer having better bowling figures than Zaheer Khan.”
Khan replied, “Equally rare is Zaheer Khan outscoring @WasimJaffer14 in not one but both innings of a test match!”
Khan shared a scorecard which showed him scoring more runs than the former India opener in a match. Jaffer replied, “Wasim Jaffer doesn’t get to bowl every test but Zaheer Khan gets to bat (almost) every test.”
After Narendra Modi controversially announced demonetisation on 8 November 2016, people like Sudhir Choudhary and Shweta Singh were found claiming that the new Rs 2000 note contained a hidden nanochip, which could help income tax officials to collect black money. Even if the currency was hidden 100 meters below the earth.
Both Chaudhary and Singh were widely ridiculed for their extraordinary claims and their claims were rejected by the Reserve Bank of India.
