Michael Vaughan Savages Indian Fan On Twitter, Takes Sly Dig At India’s Performance In South Africa
That Michael Vaughan does not shy away from giving anyone a piece of his mind is well known. The former England skipper is known for his outrageous comments on Twitter, and an Indian fan recently paid the price for taking on the former cricketer. The cricketer-turned-commentator savaged the fan after writing a derogatory reply to his tweet.
It all began when Vaughan, on Thursday (January 18), posted a critical team for football team Sheffield Wednesday.
“The worse thing a Professional Sports person can have labeled at them is that they are not trying or have stopped working hard … Well Sheffield Wednesday players it’s clear to me that you all have …,” wrote the Sheffield-born former batsman.

As expected, Vaughan’s tweet drew mixed reactions. But one Indian fan risked the ire of Vaughan by writing:
“Why you are crying all the time?”

Vaughan, however, was in no mood to let the fan go without any reply as he retaliated by taking a sly dig at India’s performance on the cricket field.
“I don’t like India getting hammered all the time … that’s why Manu….,” was Vaughan’s prompt reply.

Vaughan’s tweet came just a day after South Africa thrashed India by 135 runs in the second Test. As a result of the loss, India also conceded the three-match series. The loss also extended India’s poor overseas record in an overseas year.
Sitting atop the ICC Test rankings on the back of nine consecutive series win, India were widely tipped to do well on the ongoing tour. However, Kohli & Co. failed to deliver, losing the first Test by 72 runs and the second by 135 runs.
