Michael Vaughan, the former captain of England, has once again been ridiculed on social media by former India cricketer Wasim Jaffer, who does this frequently. The event occurred as Bangladesh defeated England 3-0 at home in the three-match T20I series.

Bangladesh bounced back after a 2-1 defeat in ODIs to win 3-0 in T20Is

The team captained by Jos Buttler defeated Bangladesh in the ODI series, 2-1, but the home team rallied to thrash the guests in the T20Is. In their first two games, they defeated England by scores of six and four wickets, respectively, before winning by a margin of 16 runs to clinch a 3-0 sweep.

In the third T20I, Bangladesh scored 158/2 off their allotted 20 overs. Najmul Hossain Shanto blasted 47 off 26 balls, while Litton Das scored 73 off 57. Adil Rashid and Chris Jordan both took one wicket for the guests. Bangladeshi bowlers responded by limiting England to 142/6 in 20 overs. Tanvir Islam, Shakib Al Hasan, and Mustafizur Rahim each claimed one wicket, while Taskin Ahmed took two. Meanwhile, Jos Buttler and Dawid Malan hit 40 and 53 runs, respectively.

After England's captain Jos Buttler's team lost the three-match series to Bangladesh by 3-0, he sounded dejected. He criticised the group's fielding performance while accepting responsibility for his unfortunate run-out in the 14th over, which aided Bangladesh's comeback.

"Really disappointing to lose the series; congratulations to Bangladesh; they outplayed us completely. We came back well (at the death), but we missed some opportunities in the field, which is disappointing. The wicket got better as it went on, and I thought we did well to restrict them to the total we did. We hoped we could chase it down, but it didn't happen. Losing two wickets quickly was crucial. Very disappointed in myself for not diving and being fully committed to completing that run," the English skipper said in the post-match presentation.
