New Delhi: Englishmen are known for their backhanded comments, and former England skipper Michael Vaughan is no exception as he took another jibe at India reminding MS Dhoni's team of their recent twin Test series loss to England home and away.
England are currently playing New Zealand in the first Test in Dunedin and Vaughan's disrespectful comment appeared on his Twitter account after Alastair Cook & Co were bowled out for 167 on Wednesday, followed by New Zealand openers racing to a century stand.
"I feel England will have to play India more to gain some confidence after a day like this.....!!!!" Vaughan tweeted on Thursday morning.
England have beaten India in a Test series twice in less than 12 months - first a 4-0 whitewash in England and then 2-1 series win in India.
India, however, been able to reverse their fortunes in 2013 at home having beaten Australia in the first two Tests of the ongoing four-Test series.
Do you think it was intentional by Vaughan or the tweet just came out the wrong way?
