Michael Vaughan, since retiring in 2008, has been quite popular on Twitter. Not one to shy away from a troll, he has time and again picked fights with fans online for his views. Vaughan also works as a cricket guru and often predicts match winners. Vaughan was targeted by a section of Indian fans after he criticised the nature of the pitches in the India vs South Africa Test series. Vaughan also predicted the winners of the ICC T20 World Cup 2020 and said that England or Australia will take the coveted trophy home.
