Former England captain Michael Vaughan is known for posting hilarious tweets. In more ways than one, his opinions are often taken out of context by fans in an attempt to mock Vaughan. In one of his tweets on Tuesday, he criticized the Seddon Park pitch in Hamilton which was used for the second Test between New Zealand and England. The match ended in a high-scoring draw as both teams scored runs at less than 3-per over in their first innings. However, the drawn result favoured New Zealand as the home side won the previous Test match by an innings and 65 runs. Michael Vaughan’s tweet ignited many responses from fans who decided to troll him on the micro-blogging site. Check out some of the hilarious responses by fans on Twitter.
