Last updated:

Former England skipper Michael Vaughan took digs at the Indian cricket team following their disappointing show against New Zealand in a Super 12 Group 2 match in Dubai on Sunday. Asked to bat first, the Indian cricket team could only manage to post a modest total of 110/& runs as the New Zealand team successfully dominated one of the best batting line-ups on paper.

After ending the Powerplay on 35/2, India failed to smash a single four between overs 7 and 15. Not a single batsmen from the team was able to touch the 30-run marks. Indian all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja turned out to be the top scorer with 26 not out. Later, the Kiwi batters took care of the rest by showcasing ruthless batting skills in the chase as they reached the target with seven overs to spare.

Meanwhile, later after the match, former England skipper Michael Vaughan took to Twitter and took pot-shots at the Indian cricket team. In his Tweet, he took a dig at Team India by stating that India is still playing 2010 Cricket and the game has already moved on. He wrote:

India are playing 2010 Cricket .. The game has moved on .. #T20WorldCup”

In another Tweet, Vaughan claimed that all the talent and depth in team India cricket they have ‘underachieved’ massively for years in white-ball cricket. He wrote:

Let’s be honest … For all the talent & depth in #India cricket they under achieved massively for years in white ball Cricket … #Fact #T20WorldCup”

He also opined that the BCCI should let team India take part in the other leagues around the world in order to give them experience. He wrote:

“India should take a leaf out of all other countries … Allow their players to play in other leagues around the World to gain experience … #India #T20WorldCup”
