After the England cricket team suffered another humiliating loss in the ongoing Ashes series today, an old tweet of the former England captain Michael Vaughan has gone viral, where he was mocking the Indian team for registering a score of less than 100 in one of their games in 2019.
It was an ODI against New Zealand early in 2019 where the Indian team was bundled out for just 92 runs, courtesy of some quality swing bowling by Trent Boult and Michael Vaughan had tweeted that day that he couldn’t believe any international team could be dismissed for less than 100 in modern-day cricket.
Today, the whole England team got bowled out for just 68 and that too on the third day of a test match on a surface where Australia had put on a score of more than 250, batting in their first innings. There was a bit of seam movement on offer at the MCG, but England’s batting was way below par.
At no point of time it seem as if any England batsman could survive for a decent length of time on that surface. Barring the skipper Joe Root, who has been the lone warrior for England right through this Ashes, nobody could get into his 20s. It took the Aussies just a tad more than 27 overs to send the whole England team packing.
Michael Vaughan gets indulged in a lot of banter on Twitter
This is England’s 12th defe at in the last 13 Ashes tests in Australia
Michael Vaughan is someone who never misses the opportunity of taking a swipe at the Indian team whenever they have a disastrous performance in international cricket and while he does it for a bit of banter, the Indian fans made sure they reminded Vaughan of his old tweet of 2019 after England’s disastrous performance today. Here is the tweet Vaughan had posted about India in 2019 –
92 all out India … Can’t believe any team would get bowled out for under a 100 these days !!!!!!
