Former England captain Michael Vaughan, who is one of the most active cricketers on Twitter, scoffed at India‘s meek surrender in the five match Test series, where they lost 1-3 to hosts England. The Yorkshireman tweeted a photo of a white flag and titled it as India’s new flag after an abject surrender on Day three at oval. India were skittled out by the hosts for a paltry 94.  Vaughan is a big hit amongst the Twitterati because of his blunt and in-your-face sense of humour.



Volatile and extra sensitive can be best described to judge only one group of people in the world of cricket i.e, Indian cricket fans. Some of them were incensed by Vaughan’s tweet and replied to Vaughan with a barrage of hate and abusive tweets. Smarting from a humiliating loss, the defeat was probably too hard to take for some of the Indians and Vaughan had to put an end to the hate that he was subjected to by urging the Indian fans to accept reality and face facts.
