Shane Warne Targets Michael Vaughan Over England’s Innings, “What’s Going On With Your Team?”


Shane Warne Targets Michael Vaughan Over England’s Innings, “What’s Going On With Your Team?”

The England skipper Joe Root played a great innings of double hundred in the first test match against India which helped his team a lot in defeating the hosts. In the second innings also, Joe Root played a good innings of 40 runs but questions were raised on his captaincy after the England team didn’t declare their innings early on the day 4.

In response to England’s huge score of 578 in the first innings, the Indians managed only 337 runs so the former cricketers were of the opinion that England would declare their second innings soon and try to get maximum wickets in the final session of the day. But the England team was not in a hurry as they wanted to give Indians a target of around 400 runs and they batted till the whole team got out for 178 runs.

The former Aussie cricketer Shane Warne didn’t like the tactics of Joe Root and he took to the micro-blogging site Twitter to slam the England skipper.

He tweeted, “Very surprised England haven’t declared yet & why aren’t they trying to get 400 asap? England batted to long in the 1st innings too & now letting the game drift & showing no urgency at all. Surely they are better of bowling now than wasting overs not scoring any runs @SkyCricket”.

Shane Warne is of the opinion that by batting for long, England is showing no urgency for winning the match and they have a given a chance to India to draw the match. Soon the former Australian spinner entered into a verbal war with the former England cricketer Michael Vaughan.

Shane tweeted, “What is going on with your cricket team? What on Earth are they doing just letting the game drift? Why aren’t they bowling? England wouldn’t want to not be able to bowl India out now after batting to long in both innings!!”

Michael Vaughan didn’t delay in defending his team and skipper as he replied, “If they Win they will have played it well… if they draw it will affect them for the rest of the Series… I still think they will win on this pitch..”

Well it was the former England skipper who had the last laugh in this Twitter banter as the England team has won the first test match by 227 runs after the whole Indian team was back in pavilion after scoring only 192 runs in their second innings.

The England cricket team has come fully prepared this time and it is certainly a wake-up call for the Indian cricket team. What do you say?
