Former England captain Michael Vaughan has been extremely active on Twitter where he is regularly seen sharing his views about world cricket. The Englishman has been immensely critical of the Indian team ever since November when the Australian tour began. From predicting that India will lose to Australia in all formats to claiming that the hosts will whitewash the visitors in the Test series, Vaughan has said everything to deprecate the Indian team. However, India have proved him wrong on all occasions by putting up inspiring performances.

Twitterati roast Michael Vaughan for unsolicited opinion on Indian captaincy

The Border-Gavaskar Trophy was done and dusted on Tuesday after Ajinkya Rahane's men created history by winning the India vs Australia 4th Test 2021 at The Gabba to clinch the series 2-1. But Vaughan isn't done with his unsolicited advice as he once again shared his views about India's captaincy for the India vs England 2021 Test series.

A few hours after the Gabba Test win on Tuesday, Vaughan took to Twitter and said that he would really consider continuing with Rahane as captain to make Virat Kohli focus solely on his batting. According to Vaughan, such a move will make India even more lethal. The former cricketer also stated that Rahane has brilliant presence and tactical sense.
