Despite being repeatedly trolled, Michael Vaughan is not agreeing, raised questions on Dhawan-Laxman's decision in the first ODI
After India's defeat, Jaffer praised Williamson and Latham for their fine innings and congratulated them. Apart from this, Jaffer also told the mistakes of Indian bowlers. In his tweet, Vaughan wrote, 'New Zealand is a modern ODI team. You need at least 6 bowling options, if not 7.
There is a frequent spat between former England captain Michael Vaughan and former Indian batsman Wasim Jaffer on Twitter. Even after the ODI match played between India and New Zealand on Friday, there were tweet exchanges between the two. New Zealand beat India by 7 wickets in the first match played at Eden Park in Auckland. Michael Vaughan has taunted about this. He has questioned the decision of captain Shikhar Dhawan, coach VVS Laxman and the team management.
After India's defeat, Jaffer praised Williamson and Latham for their fine innings and congratulated them. Apart from this, Jaffer also told the mistakes of Indian bowlers. Jaffer tweeted and wrote, 'New Zealand you showed a great game. Even a score of 300 looked like 270. Williamson showed class as always, but Latham batted brilliantly and deserves the credit. It is not easy for an opener to come down the order and still be successful. Team India made a mistake by playing only five bowlers.
In his tweet, Vaughan wrote, 'New Zealand is a modern ODI team. You need at least 6 bowling options, if not 7. This is not the first time that the former England captain has made such a tweet mocking the Indian team. Earlier, after losing in the semi-final match of the T20 World Cup, he had described this performance of India as the best performance in the history of the white ball. Vaughan had said, 'Every player who goes to play in the Indian Premier League says how much it has improved their game, but what has India achieved from it? What has he done after winning the 50-over World Cup on home soil in 2011? nothing. India is playing the same old-style cricket in a white ball which they have played for years.
In the first ODI played against New Zealand, India had set a target of 307 runs in front of New Zealand with the help of excellent batting from Shreyas Iyer and Shikhar Dhawan. Iyer had scored the highest innings of 80 runs. Whereas Dhawan scored 72 runs in 77 balls. In response, New Zealand achieved it in 47.3 overs by losing three wickets. For him, Latham scored an unbeaten 145 off 104 balls with 5 sixes and 19 fours and captain Kane Williamson also scored an unbeaten inning of 94 off 98 balls.
