Fans on social media were left annoyed and confused with the sudden change in Michael Vaughan’s thoughts and in no time he was getting trolled left, right, and center for the same.
For the unversed, earlier this week, the former England skipper had expressed his surprise about how the Indian cricket team was being tagged as the favorites for winning the T20 World Cup. He had said:
“England for me are the favourites. I don’t know how India get the ‘favourites’ tag in T20 cricket. I just think they’ve been a long way off in the last few tournaments.”
“West Indies and Pakistan will be threats. I wouldn’t write off Pakistan either. New Zealand have high-class players and you know they will come up with strategies to win games,”
Among many, former Indian cricketer and commentator Kris Srikkanth also joined the bandwagon and came up with a savage response to Michael Vaughan. In his Tweet, Kris Srikkanth took a dig at Vaughan taking a u-turn from his statement by writing how a lot of turns are expected. He said:
“I think a lot of turn was expected”
