Michael Vaughan Asked India About Gifting Signed Jersey To Joe Root, Got Mercilessly Trolled


Michael Vaughan Asked India About Gifting Signed Jersey To Joe Root, Got Mercilessly Trolled

Michael Vaughan, the former England cricketer, is known for being very critical of the Indian cricket team and now once again, he has taken a dig at the Indian squad after it lost the first test match to the England side by 227 runs.

The English cricket team was on the tour to Sri Lanka before coming to India and there they defeated Sri Lanka by 2-0 in the 2-match test series. In the first test match against India which was played at Chepauk stadium, Chennai, the visitors were far superior to the hosts from the day one. The England skipper Joe Root who was playing his 100th test match played a brilliant knock of 218 runs and helped his team in posting a huge total of 578 runs in their first innings.

The England bowlers were also bang on target as they bundled out the whole Indian team for just 337 runs which gave a good lead of 241 runs to England. Though the England team was not able to score much in the second innings as they were all out for 178, they still gave a pretty good target of 420 runs to the Indian side. In response, the hosts were all out for just 192 and consequently, England won the first test match by 227 runs.

Few hours after the test match got over, the former English cricketer turned commentator Michael Vaughan took to the micro-blogging site Twitter for taking a jibe at the Indian squad by questioning it for not gifting a signed T-shirt to Joe Root as a gesture to acknowledge him for playing his 100th test match. There is no rule as per which the opposition team has to gift a signed T-shirt to the player who is playing his 100th test match but India did gift a signed T-shirt to Australian cricketer Nathan Lyon after he played his 100th test match which was the fourth test match of the series and was played at Gabba, Brisbane.

Michael Vaughan wrote, “India gifted @NathLyon421 a signed shirt for his 100th Test at the end of the Gabba Win … Did @root66 receive one today after the loss ?? Not sure if it happened? Can anyone confirm ?”

This certainly was not liked by the Indian cricket fans and they again did what they have been doing for quite some time now, i.e., trolling Michael Vaughan mercilessly for unnecessarily targeting the Indian team every now and then. Here are some of the selected reactions:
















It will be interesting to see what team India’s strategy will be in the second test match and what all changes it will make to attain the victory!
