Former England skipper Michael Vaughan continues to hit the ball out of the park. Messing with the Indian cricket fans seems to be his favorite pass time as every now and then the former skipper comes up with a sarcastic comment that riles ups the Indian cricket fans, who later slam him brutally for his comments.
On Wednesday, Michael Vaughan was up to his old tricks again after he took a cheesy dig at the Motera Stadium in Ahmedabad.
Well, on Wednesday, the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) shared a jaw-dropping picture of the stadium via their official Twitter account.
For your information, we should tell you that the Motera Stadium or the Sardar Patel Stadium is set to be the largest cricket stadium in the world. It has a capacity of 1,10,000 seatings.
The old structure of the stadium was taken down in the year 2015. The last international match that was played in this stadium was the ODI match between India and Sri Lanka in the year 2014. Since then no match was played on this stadium.
Sharing the picture of the stadium, BCCI wrote:
“The Sun is out! ?
Ahmedabad, India ??”

The fans were delighted to see the pictures and couldn’t hold back their excitement after seeing the latest pictures of the stadium. However, Michael Vaughan decided to try his old tricks and have some with the Indian cricket fans by taking a dig at the stadium.
Michael compared the stadium to the Headingley stadium in Leeds, which only has a capacity of 17,000 sittings. He wrote:
“Almost as good as Headingley !!!!,”
