India suffered yet another loss in the ongoing 20-20 World Cup. The batting crumbled against the disciplined New Zealand bowling which led to an eight-wicket defeat. This was the second loss in a row, which resulted in a huge uproar by fans and critics. Michael Vaughan, who does not leave one single opportunity to rub salt into the wounds of Indian fans was at it again. Before India’s batters failed to get going and lost wickets at a cluster, he had posted a Tweet about the team’s possible exit in the Super 12 stage.
And now, the cricketer-turned-expert feels the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) should allow its players to play other leagues to gain some experience. “India should take a leaf out of all other countries … allow their players to play in other leagues around the World to gain experience … #India,” Vaughan wrote.

Former England cricketer was of the opinion that by allowing Indian players to participate in the other foreign leagues’ such as BBL and CPL, the players will get good exposure and gain enough experience of playing in different conditions. Jos Buttler, Jonny Bairstow, and Harris Rauf have played BBL and have upped their game in batting and bowling respectively.
Vaughan feels Indian players too should have such exposure. This Tweet though was not liked by the fans and they started telling the former England captain to stop giving unnecessary advice.
We don't need to learn from someone who struggled for more than 40years to win a World Cup in a sport which they have been playing fr more than 100years and that too on count of no. Of boundaries. We have been a champion team and we will fight back. 🇮🇳

@MichaelVaughan : There is no need of it. India lost in two matches doesn't make them a loser. Every team will have go through this phase of failure at some point of time.

Now don't try to divert and create a ruckus between us. Our players have experience and the skills needed. Just a bad phase for the team. Like England was having for 44 years before 2019 WC ! #T20WorldCup #India

India have lost two matches on the bounce. The Virat Kohli-led side needs to win the remaining three games and hope for a few results to go in their favour to harbour hopes of making it to the semis.
