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.

Till yesterday everything was fine and you were sniffing eng victory when Root was batting..😄😄
Maybe your batsmen should have shown more urgency. Root, pope and burns all were a bit defensive. Can't always blame the pitch.— AshRK (@ashtheking) December 2, 2019
I guess England is the only place where pitches were perfect. Why dont admit that your team can't play out side England. They can't adopt conditions.— iam@Avi (@avigandhi19) December 2, 2019
When England batsmen flourish.. "Class is permanent "— Indian! (@Bebaak__Indian) December 3, 2019
When New Zealand score big runs.. "Pitch is so Bad"
The roasting comes after a few months when co-incidentally, Vaughan had also slammed the pitches used in the Test series between India and South Africa. Vaughan described the Indian pitches as "boring" and not suitable for Test cricket. Even at the time, the former England cricketer was not spared. Check out one of the replies down below.
