The fierce rivalry between England and Australia is very well-known in the cricket fraternity. Starting from the famous obituary citing English cricket’s death to the infamous bodyline series, the rivalry is arguably the biggest one the game has ever witnessed. And so it is not surprising to see the players of each country expressing their dislike for each other every now and then. One such player is former England skipper Michael Vaughan who never misses a chance to take a dig at the Aussies.

Most recently, the retired cricketer had tweeted how Australia’s struggle during the fourth day of the recently-concluded Ranchi Test against India had ‘brighten his week’. But at the end of the day, every cricketer respects a good game of cricket and it does not matter whether it comes from his own team or the arch-rivals. A true sportsman will always appreciate it and probably that is why the game is known as gentleman’s game.

After the Australian team managed to salvage a hard-fought draw on the final day of the Ranchi Test, the former England batsman once again took to Twitter to wish them. At 63 for 4 in the first session of the last day, the Aussies were staring down the barrel but Peter Handscomb and Shaun Marsh stitched together a brilliant partnership of 124 runs to help their team save the match. And although Vaughan was not in the mood to praise the Aussies for their dodgy display, he tweeted:“Hate to give them compliments but that was some effort by Australia … love seeing a team #DIGIN. and fight for a draw ….”

    An avid sports lover, i always wanted to pursue a career in football. But just like the millions out there i did not put in the hard work needed to achieve my dream and now i have become a fan instead of the player. Anyway, writing for sports has kept me closer to this field. One more thing, yours sincerely is a die-hard Liverpool fan.
    You will never walk alone.
