Former England skipper Micheal Vaughan took a humorous pop at US President Donald Trump for pronouncing Cricket legend Sachin Tendulkar's name incorrectly in his address at the Motera Stadium in Gujarat. While the crowd greeted Trump's ode to India's cricketers with huge cheers, the reaction on social media was one of amusement as the US President incorrectly pronounced the name of Legendary Sachin Tendulkar.
Taking to his Twitter, Micheal Vaughan took a hilarious dig at Donald Trump, imitating his pronunciation. Have a look.
Earlier, former England cricketer Kevin Pietersen also trolled the US President. He stated that the two Indians are ‘legends’ of the game and asked Trump to do some research. In fact, the tweet was directed towards Piers Morgan who Pietersen shares a good bond with and also quoted Trump as Morgan’s friend.
During his speech, the US President was full of praises for the Indian people, his Indian counterpart PM Modi, the country's rich culture and its heritage, and other aspects.
