Former England cricket team skipper and commentator (at present) Michael Vaughan is quite active on Twitter as he expresses his own views about the game. He is currently in India to share his expert opinion regarding the ongoing season of cash-rich Indian Premier League.
Vaughan had some word of advise to the BCCI that Indian players should be given the much-needed rest ahead of the upcoming World Cup.
The former England captain might not have liked Indian cities as he found something weird while he was travelling on the road. Needless to say, his comment about India received huge backlash on social media after he wrote about the experience which he faced in the country.
He wrote how he came across several animals like elephants, cows, pigs, sheep, camels and goats on the road in the nation.
Vaughan tweeted ‘Love travelling in #India … So far this morning we have seen Elephants, Cows, Camels, Sheep, Goats & Pigs all in the middle of the road … #OnOn.’

Maybe his tweet wasn’t meant to insult the whole country but his tweet was not well received by the Indian citizens who bashed him in response. Check out the tweets below:
Someone tell him that we are a happy ecosystem.
