Former England captain Michael Vaughan has been quite active in social media these days, coming up with insights and hilarious tweets. While Michael Vaughan has copped plenty of flak from Indian fans over his comments against Indian pitches in the Test series, he has kept going. With Suryakumar Yadav and Ishan Kishan handed their maiden India caps in the ongoing second T20I against England, he has come up with another cheeky post on Twitter.
Suryakumar Yadav and Ishan Kishan earned maiden call-ups to the national team following their outstanding performances for Mumbai Indians in IPL 2020. Suryakumar Yadav has been consistently knocking on the national side’s doors with compelling displays in the domestic circuit and the marquee T20 league. Ishan Kishan was Mumbai Indians’ standout performer in IPL 2020 with 516 runs and smashing the most sixes.
India’s team management decided to hand debuts to Suryakumar Yadav and Ishan Kishan as they replaced Shikhar Dhawan and Axar Patel. It was the home side’s underwhelming batting performance resulting in a loss that likely forced the change. The men in blue put on only 125 in the opening T20 international against England as they struggled against the tourists’ pace quartet. The number one T20 side responded by chasing the target with eight wickets to spare in 15.3 overs.
What did Michael Vaughan’s tweet say?
Michael Vaughan hilariously lauded BCCI for following advice from Mumbai Indians after they decided to include Suryakumar Yadav and Ishan Kishan. The 46-year old termed it as a smart move as well.
