Former England skipper Michael Vaughan has taken a cheeky dig at the Australian team after a tough day on the field for Steve Smith’s men during the ongoing Test against India in Ranchi.

The team from Down Under was in commanding position of the Test till the third day but the story completely changed after the fourth day’s play. India were in a spot of bother when Cheteshwar Pujara and Wriddhiman Saha  resumed the innings on the fourth morning. At 391 for 6, still 60 runs behind Australia’s fourth innings total of 451, a quick wicket would have put Australia firmly on top but Pujara and Saha added 199 run for the seventh wicket to help India assert their authority on the tie. Pujara compiled an epic double century and Wriddhiman Saha hit a career-best 117 before left-arm spinner Ravindra Jadeja brightened India’s chances of winning the match by dismissing David Warner and Nathan Lyon cheaply to reduce Australia to 23-2.

The fourth day’s play has surely put a smile on every Indian fan’s face and Vaughan, it seems, is also very delighted to see Australia on the back foot. The Ashes-winning skipper took to Twitter to express his happiness. Taking a sly dig at Steve Smith’s men, Vaughan tweeted:“My weekend has been poor ..Wednesday,England Rugby losing ..Too many G & Ts ..But you can always rely on Aussie cricket to brighten it up !”

    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.
