Former England captain Michael Vaughan shuts down Twitter troll with perfect response


Nov. 12, 2019

Former England captain Michael Vaughan gave a perfect response to a troll on Twitter, who tried to have fun at his expense.
Michael Vaughan shut down a troll on Twitter with a perfect response after he tried to make fun of the former England captain. Vaughan, on Monday, had retweeted a video of a toddler batting in diapers after he was left impressed by the little one's batting skills at such a tender age. A Twitter troll decided to take a dig at Vaughan using the reference of the video.
"Are those the same brand of nappies you wore when you were facing Brett Lee?," the troll asked Vaughan, who was quick to shut him down with a brilliant response. "Absolutely .. mine were bigger .. although I did manage 3 Tons in 8 Tests against him," Vaughan wrote in his response.
The cricketing rivalry between England and Australia is well-documented and both the teams continue to produce thrilling contests whenever they lock horns on the pitch, irrespective of the format. Vaughan during his time with England enjoyed a fierce battle with former Aussie quick Brett Lee and the other Australian pacers.
The former right-hander played 82 Tests and 86 ODIs for England, amassing 5719 and 1982 runs in the two formats respectively. Against Australia, Vaughan scored 959 runs in ten Test matches including four centuries between 2002-2005. In ODIs, he notched up 353 runs in 14 games against the Aussies at an average of 29.41.
Vaughan continues to remain associated with cricket after his retirement and can be spotted doing commentary during England's matches. He also is quite active on social media where he keeps posting his predictions related to big tournaments and also answers fans' queries about the game.
In one of his recent tweets, Vaughan picked England and Australia as favourites to win the World T20 next year which is slated to be held Down Under. His prediction came after England's thrilling Super Over win in the final fifth T20I against New Zealand on Sunday.
