  1. The majority of the times Michael Vaughan gets involved in a disagreement with a cricketer, fellow cricket analyst, or even a fan, things become uglier than they should have been and more often than not, it is the former England captain who’s the one to make the deep cut. Recently, Vaughan spoke about how he feels New Zealand skipper Kane Williamson would have been a greater cricketer than Virat Kohli, provided he was an Indian cricketer, which, as expected, took the cricketing world by storm. "If Kane Williamson was Indian, he'd be the greatest player in the world, but he's not because you're not allowed to say that Virat Kohli is not the greatest, because you'd get an absolute pelting on social media,” Vaughan had told Spark Sport last week. "I think Kane Williamson is up there with the great players across the three formats and he certainly matches Virat Kohli… It's just he doesn't have the 100 million followers on Instagram and doesn't earn the $30-40 million or whatever Virat gets every year for his commercial endorsements,” he added. While many were busy calling him out for his not so humble opinion, former Pakistan skipper Salman Butt also took his shot at him and called his take on the whole matter “irrelevant”. "Kohli belongs to a country which has a huge population. Obviously, he would have a bigger fanbase. On top of that, his performance is better too. Virat has 70 international tons at the moment, no other batsman from this era has that many. "And who has compared the two? Michael Vaughan. He was a brilliant captain for England, but the beauty at which he used to bat, his output wasn't on par. He was a good Test batsman but Vaughan never scored a single century in ODIs. Now, as an opener, if you haven't scored a century, it's not worth discussion. It’s just that he has a knack for saying things that stir up a debate. Besides, people have a lot of time to stretch a topic ... What Vaughan has said is irrelevant," Butt said. Unfortunately, this was not the end of the debate… far from it. Vaughan decided to draw the big guns and dug up Butt’s past, an infamous incident of match-fixing charges back in 2010 for which he was banned from playing international cricket for Pakistan for five years. No idea what the headline is ... but I seen what Salman has said about me ... that’s fine and he is allowed his opinion but I wished he had such a clear thought of mind back in 2010 when he was Match fixing !!! https://t.co/EkDWuH7Vi4 — Michael Vaughan (@MichaelVaughan) May 16, 2021 “No idea what the headline is ... but I seen what Salman has said about me ... that’s fine and he is allowed his opinion but I wished he had such a clear thought of mind back in 2010 when he was Match fixing !!!” Vaughan said in a tweet on Sunday. However, Vaughan critics remember the kind of sympathy Vaughan had shown towards Steve Smith and Cameron Bancroft when they were caught in the infamous ‘Sandpaper gate’ during Australia’s tour of South Africa. “Steve Smith I think is a good guy who made a huge mistake ... He needed punishing but I think this is too harsh ... Bancroft who I don't know was led astray but deserved punishing but again too harshly IMO ... The other guy I really don't care about ..," Vaughan had said back in 2016 when Smith, Bancord and David Warner were found guilty of ball-tampering and were suspended from the Australian side for almost a year. This pity towards the Australians were called out after Vaughan’s ruthless comment on Butt’s past: Why are English greats so forgiving of Warner, Smith & co, but not of Salman Butt? And what does it have to do with Salman's comment on @MichaelVaughan? https://t.co/n3g5d0mKMn — Yeshwanth Kini (@YeshwanthKini) May 16, 2021he's just obsessed with salman cmnt coz it really fired the a** of Michael vaughan that's y he started personal criticism rather and remembering how his team behaved eg. ben stokes drunk and fighting on street...ben stokes and jos butler molesting girl in public with dildo! shame — Sunny More (@ARTHURSCR7) May 16, 2021JUST IN: @MichaelVaughan has lost all of his moral values. https://t.co/AkqitLCshn — अnadi (@tiwari_ji_) May 16, 2021Mr. Vaughan - if you can't handle little banter on twitter than you need to stay away from starting some banter. You said something and salman butt said something, no need to bring in Fixing fiasco in between. You belong to gentleman game behave like one.. — Pratik Tantia (@PratikTantia) May 16, 2021 View the full article
  2. Not too long ago, former England captain and one of the most controversial cricket analysts in modern cricket, Michael Vaughan said that New Zealand skipper Kane Williamson would have been a greater player than Virat Kohli if he too was an Indian. "If Kane Williamson was Indian, he'd be the greatest player in the world, but he's not because you're not allowed to say that Virat Kohli is not the greatest, because you'd get an absolute pelting on social media,” Vaughan had told Spark Sport last week. "I think Kane Williamson is up there with the great players across the three formats and he certainly matches Virat Kohli… It's just he doesn't have the 100 million followers on Instagram and doesn't earn the $30-40 million or whatever Virat gets every year for his commercial endorsements,” he added. Obviously, such comments cannot go unnoticed and fans and cricket experts from all corners of the world have their respective opinions to put forward in this matter. Former Pakistan cricketer-turned-YouTuber, Salman Butt also tried his hand at having a say in this whole matter. However, he did so by sidelining Vaughan’s credibility as an analyst and calling his thoughts “irrelevant”. "Kohli belongs to a country which has a huge population. Obviously, he would have a bigger fanbase. On top of that, his performance is better too. Virat has 70 international tons at the moment, no other batsman from this era has that many. "And who has compared the two? Michael Vaughan. He was a brilliant captain for England, but the beauty at which he used to bat, his output wasn't on par. He was a good Test batsman but Vaughan never scored a single century in ODIs. Now, as an opener, if you haven't scored a century, it's not worth discussion. It’s just that he has a knack for saying things that stir up a debate. Besides, people have a lot of time to stretch a topic ... What Vaughan has said is irrelevant," Butt said. View this post on Instagram If you know anything about Vaughan, you know that he is never the one to hold back from such confrontations, especially when he’s going against someone with baggage as massive as Salman Butt. The former Pakistan captain was one of the three accused in the spot-fixing scandal at Lord's in 2010. He was later banned for five years from playing for the Pakistan side and later failed to make his return to the international roster. It didn’t take long for Vaughan to bring out the dagger. In a tweet on Sunday evening, Vaughan wrote: No idea what the headline is ... but I seen what Salman has said about me ... that’s fine and he is allowed his opinion but I wished he had such a clear thought of mind back in 2010 when he was Match fixing !!! https://t.co/EkDWuH7Vi4 — Michael Vaughan (@MichaelVaughan) May 16, 2021 “No idea what the headline is ... but I seen what Salman has said about me ... that’s fine and he is allowed his opinion but I wished he had such a clear thought of mind back in 2010 when he was Match fixing !!!” Since this comment, most of the fans of Kohli and Williamson have forgotten the original debate and have simply joined forces to express their shock over Vaughan’s zinger.

He made a bad name for Pakistan & involved upcoming modern day greats like Amir & Asif with him. And he did that shit being a Captain of the national team. Can't get more worst than what he did back in 2010. https://t.co/VWcR9Z9FTo — Muhammad Zaeem Ahsan (@ZA7Leo) May 16, 2021@MichaelVaughan @im_SalmanButt Knock out punch by mr.

  3. The past couple of years have brought along a revolution within the players of the Indian cricket team and their candidness towards struggling with mental health issues. On Sunday, India’s legendary Sachin Tendulkar opened up about his mental health struggles and how he suffered from severe anxiety for over a decade while playing as an international cricketer and representing his nation at some of the biggest stages. View this post on Instagram “Over period of time I realised that besides preparing physically for a game, you have to prepare yourself mentally also. In my mind, the match started long before I entered the ground. The anxiety levels were very high,” Tendulkar said in an interaction organised by Unacademy. “I felt the anxiety for 10-12 years, had many sleepless nights before a game. Later on, I started accepting that it was part of my preparation. Then I made peace with times I was not able to sleep in the night. I would start doing something to keep my mind comfortable.” That “something” included shadow batting, watching TV and playing video games in the wee hours of the day. Even making his morning cup of tea helped him prepare for the game. View this post on Instagram Sachin also spoke about how making cups of tea, and ironing clothes also helped him get over the feeling of uncertainty and get ready for the match. "I would pack my bag the day before the game, my brother taught me all of it and it became a habit. I followed the same drill even in the last match I played for India,” said the 48-year-old, who retired after playing his 200th Test match in 2013. View this post on Instagram “When there is an injury, physios and doctors examine you and diagnose what is wrong with you. The same is the case with mental health. It is normal for anyone to go through ups and downs and when you hit those lows you need people around. “Acceptability is the key here. Not just for the player, for people around him also. Once you have accepted you start looking for solutions,” he added. View the full article
  4. Thanks to the internet and social media, the practice of oil pulling has become quite popular. However, with anything that is popularized by the Internet, there can be doubts and misconceptions surrounding this practice too. If you are someone who hasn't tried oil pulling but are interested in finding out its benefits and how to do it, we have got you covered. What is Oil Pulling?Oil pulling is an old Ayurvedic practice that involves swishing oil in the mouth for a short period of time to improve oral hygiene and reap other health benefits simultaneously. © Pexels This traditional medicinal process is said to pull out toxins present in your body. Oil pulling is basically a mouthwash rinse but with oil in which you take one tablespoon of good cold-pressed oil (can be any oil including coconut, sesame, mustard, but the most preferable is cold-pressed coconut oil due to its highly absorbable properties and agreeable taste) and then you swish the oil inside your mouth for about good 15–20 minutes and throw it out. And yes you read that correct, around 15–20 minutes, as Ayurveda mentions it to be the appropriate time for the process to take place. You can start slowly for about 5 minutes, then go to 10 and progressively increase the time. Benefits of Oil Pulling1. Oil Pulling helps kill harmful bacteria in your mouth. Various studies have confirmed that oil pulling helps eliminate bad bacteria which can contribute to problems like tooth decay, bad breath, and gum diseases. 2. It also helps eliminate bad breath as there are hundreds of different types of bacteria in your mouth. While many of them are friendly, some are not. 3. Great for your oral health as it is good for gums, tongue, and teeth. 4. Good for overall detoxification of the body, as it helps bind all the toxins and then eliminate them from your body which results in optimal body functioning. The other important thing that you should take care of is the type of oil that you use for oil pulling, As mentioned, the most suitable oil to use for oil pulling is good cold-pressed/virgin coconut oil as some people might face issues with mustard or sesame oil being a bit too potent, which may cause some burn and irritation. __ECOMPRODUCT__556__ Some things to take care of1. Make sure you perform oil pulling first thing in the morning on an empty stomach before brushing your teeth. 2. Don't spit out the oil in your wash basin as it can clog your sewerage pipelines, try throwing it in a newspaper/paper towel or in any dustbin. 3. Also, make sure that you don't swallow the oil, as it is full of toxins and all the bad stuff that you want to remove from your body. Is your effort worth it? © Pexels Various studies have confirmed the benefits of this old medicinal practice towards improving one's overall health and oral hygiene. Integrating this little practice for good health and giving oil pulling a try is not a bad idea, as science says that oral health and general health are interrelated. View the full article
  5. There's rarely a day when Twitter ceases to amaze us. Quite often you come across posts to memes to unique perspectives on current scenarios that are outright hilarious. And today, we have news from a college in Andhra Pradesh. A science department that mistook Heisenberg of uncertainty principle for Heisenberg of Breaking Bad. (2019, AP) pic.twitter.com/aEmacYEv5V — Rahul M (@twrahul) May 12, 2021 An image captured by Rahul M shows how the science department of the college mistook Bryan Cranston as the real Werner Heisenberg. In the image you can see legendary contributors in the field of science including Max Planck, S. Cannizaro, Friedrich Wohler along with an image of Bryan Cranston. Clearly, someone mistook Cranston for the real Heisenberg and it's just cracking us up. The American actor had popularised his alias of Heisenberg through his renowned TV series Breaking Bad. In the show, Cranston plays a Chemistry teacher who spirals out to becoming one of the baddest villains we have ever seen on TV shows. Once Cranston's character turns to the world of crime and drugs, he operates under the alias Heisenberg. For reference, here's a picture of the real Werner Heisenberg who is known for his famous Uncertainty Principle. © Getty Images We don't blame the staff for framing Cranston's image and putting it up there with the legends though. If you google images for 'Heisenberg' the search engine returns various results, most of which are images of Bryan Cranston from Breaking Bad. It's a bit surprising that Google shows these results when you are actually looking for images of the German theoretical Physicist. But then again, Google isn't perfect when it comes to judging the intent of the search. Nonetheless, the honest mistake is making people crack up at the irony of the situation. Here's what they had to say about it: #BreakingBad Simply hilarious. Sombody simply googled Heisenburg and used the first picture they got . — Antariksh (@anilvittal) May 14, 2021When you search for Heisenberg's pic while being high on crystal — Jaysriram Roy (@JaysriramR) May 13, 2021 pic.twitter.com/IQ9wOyAIsW — Nemo (@NonsensicalNemo) May 14, 2021le real Heisenberg: pic.twitter.com/Pn1oWtvgnQ — @PUNchayat (@PUNchayatiiii) May 13, 2021I hope kids are not taking online chemistry classes from him, they might end up cooking — Abhi (@abhishekbharti9) May 13, 2021Nothing wrong even he deserves to be up there — puppet (@SQLExplore) May 14, 2021Students in class.. pic.twitter.com/g8ZPOiiRei — Dr.Gaurav Wadgaonkar (@DrGauravW) May 13, 2021They should be understand "Yeh physics wala h kya" pic.twitter.com/bKsXa7Z8sy — Tejas (@iTheTejas) May 13, 2021Must be subscribing to the Daily Guardian.

  7. Arjan Singh Bhullar has become the first Indian-origin Mixed Martial Arts World Champion by defeating Brandon Vera to become the world heavyweight champion at One Championship, Singapore. Arjan Bhullar 🇮🇳 becomes the FIRST Indian Mixed Martial Arts World Champion, stopping Brandon Vera with second-round strikes! @TheOneASB #ONEDangal #WeAreONE #ONEChampionship pic.twitter.com/e6gblkjshC — ONE Championship (@ONEChampionship) May 15, 2021 Bhullar ended Vera's five-year championship-winning streak by completely dominating in the second round of the fight. "It's the first time in my entire career that I felt gassed in the first round. I'm in shape, we've been training, we've been working with the best people in the world. This is new for me," Vera said in the post match interview. Bhullar's approach was rather cautious in the first round, but eventually he managed to take Vera down towards the end of the opening frame. In the second round, Bhullar was far more aggressive and left Vera gasping for air with a body shot. It was beginning to look like game over for Vera the moment Bhullar closed him into a body lock, eventually pounding him out for a technical knockout victory. Following his victory, Arjan Singh Bhullar took to Instagram to celebrate the occasion and let his fans know what it meant for him. He wrote, "I am humbled by the outpouring of love and support from across the (globe) As my inner circle knows this camp we were tested more than in any other, yet the faith and belief held firm. Life has taught me time and again that when something is meant to be nobody and nothing can stop it from happening. I love you all. God has been great. I will carry this belt with pride. I will represent the company @onechampionship proudly. I will represent the🇮🇳community respectfully. I will represent my family honorably. Big things coming." View this post on Instagram Prior to this feat, Bhullar had also won the Commonwealth games gold medal in New Delhi in 2010 and in London in 2012. He was also the first Indian-origin freestlye wrestler to represent Canada at the Olympics. He was also the first Indian-origin fighter to win a UFC fight.

  8. Salman Khan's latest film Radhe: Your Most Wanted Bhai released on ZEE5 on May 13. Ever since the film's been setting records - some remarkable and some forgettable. On Friday, Salman Khan took to Instagram to thank his fans as the film had garnered 4.2 million views on its first day of release itself. However, Salman had to take to his social media yesterday again, but not for a celebratory reason. He wrote, "We offered you to watch our film Radhe at a reasonable price of INR 249 Per View. In spite of that, pirated sites are streaming Radhe illegally which is a serious crime. Cyber Cell is taking action against all these illegal pirated sites. Please don’t participate in piracy or the Cyber Cell will take action against you as well.

Thank you bhaijaan for giving us solid Headache — Nilay Tijare (@nilay_tijare) May 15, 2021Earlier, speaking about the hybrid model that the filmmakers had experimented with for the Radhe's release, Randeep Hooda had said, “It will be a good experiment for the industry to have this hybrid kind of platform release where people who are unable to get to theatres can watch it. It is also a cheaper option since instead of buying one ticket per person, the entire family can watch it. What better film to test the whole system with than a Salman Khan film. I’m hoping it will do well.” Salman had earlier apologised to theatre owners for not being able to release the film on the big screen. He had also asked fans to watch the film legally. In a recorded message, he'd said, "It takes the hard work of several people to make one film and it hurts a lot when some take the route of piracy to watch the final product. I want a commitment from all of you that you will enjoy films on the right platform. So this Eid we want a commitment from the audience- no piracy in entertainment."

  10. A couple of years ago, one incident completely tarnished the reputations of two of the most well-known Australian cricketers in modern era cricket and the dreams of an aspiring cricketer to make it at the international level. The infamous ‘sandpaper gate’ took place back in 2018 during Australia’s tour of South Africa. Since then, the three main culprits whose names were brought forward at the time of the enquiry, namely, David Warner, Steve Smith and Cameron Bancroft have been humiliated, suspended, and allowed to play cricket once again. Product placement 101! #SAvAus #SandpaperGate pic.twitter.com/7Ap6HU7KFn — amey (@_muse_bot) March 25, 2018 However, a new interview in The Guardian with the man who was caught red handed by the cameramen, Bancroft has revealed some new information that even has experienced cricket analysts scratching their heads. "Yeah, look, all I wanted to do was to be responsible and accountable for my own actions and part. Yeah, obviously what I did benefits bowlers and the awareness around that, probably, is self-explanatory," Bancroft told The Guardian when asked whether some of the bowlers knew about the tactics at play. When asked again whether the bowlers knew, Bancroft said: "Uh ... yeah, look, I think, yeah, I think it's pretty probably self-explanatory." Bancroft pretty clearly implied how there might be more than just these three players who knew about the potential ball-tampering going on within the roster and how none of the teammates were willing to stop them or act as whistleblowers. "I invested too much to the point where I lost control of my values. What had become important to me was being liked, being well valued, feeling really important to my teammates, like I was contributing something by using sandpaper on a cricket ball," he said. Such revelations even left the ‘Voice of Indian Cricket’ Harsha Bhogle struggling to make sense of what was going on on the ground back in 2018. Cam Bancroft might have revealed a little bit more than before, something talked about informally on the circuit, about SandpaperGate. "Were the bowlers aware?" It is "self-explanatory" he says. That can't mean a no, surely. — Harsha Bhogle (@bhogleharsha) May 15, 2021 Although, England veteran Andrew Flingtoff had spoken about this exact problem (of whether or not the bowlers knew about the plan) around the time when the incident was fresh. Bringing this gem from Freddie back.. Starc bit always cracks me up. pic.twitter.com/3F4nFDrzoe — Sandy (@ThatWickedGuy_) May 15, 2021 "That's something I don't think I even understood until that mistake happened. But it's part of the journey and a hard lesson I needed to learn." Back when the incident had just taken place, Smith had talked about how a toxic environment was created within the Australia dressing room and how the then Cricket Australia executives James Sutherland and Pat Howard had instilled a “win at all cost” feeling within the players, even if it meant going against the spirit of the game. "I think back to Hobart when we lost there against South Africa (November 2016) and it was our fifth straight loss in Test cricket I think after three Tests in Sri Lanka. And I remember James Sutherland and Pat Howard coming into the rooms there and actually saying 'We don't pay you to play, we pay you to win'," Smith had confessed to Adam Gilchrist back in 2018.

Radhe is a crappy movie. There is nothing to say about the best in the movie. Poor screenplay. It seems that all the action movies of Salman Khan have been made into a movie. A very bad movie. If it is just a fight, it does not become a movie.bakwas movie. — Abid Babu (@AbidBabu15) May 15, 2021*everyone giving Radhe movie ⭐1 star rating on IMDB *Salman Khan be like pic.twitter.com/KUl1UU06Ey — AASHISH Kumar (confused wing ) (@Confused_NaR) May 15, 2021Kitne Salman ke fan base IMDb kaa naam jaante honge.

  12. Mizoram's Power and Electricity minister R Lalzirliana has set a new benchmark in leading by example. On Friday, the minister was seen mopping the floors of a hospital where he is undergoing treatment for COVID-19 along with his wife and son. And there are politicians like R Lalzirliana, the power minister of #Mizoram, who was seen mopping the floor of the Covid ward where he is recovering after testing positive.#Aizawl #Northeast pic.twitter.com/IoBhvJB0us — Anupam Bordoloi (@asomputra) May 14, 2021 However, the minister's motive wasn't to embarrass the medical staff or authorities. “My motive in mopping the floors was not to embarrass the nurses or doctors but I want to educate and lead others by setting an example,” Lalzirliana said. Lalzirliana had called a sweeper since his room was messy. However, since the sweeper could not come, he himself started mopping the floor. “Sweeping, mopping the floors or performing household chores are no new jobs to me. I used to do at home and other places when it was required to do so,” the minister said. The photograph of him mopping the floor has gone viral on social media and people are lauding him for leading by example. Here's what people had to say Those are the good leaders generally seen in northeast state.Even I had experienced at Gangtok when a top level bureaucrat cleaned the nearby area for some local event made by government. — Subhra (@Subhra__sahoo) May 15, 2021These r real peoples & real leaders. Mizoram Minister R Lalzirliana is a normal human being not a robot like pampered babu or businessmen politicians that Modi Shah or many other north Indian leaders are! Simplicity is totally missing from PM, HM down to last BJP Govt Ministers — Capt G R Choudhary (@captgrc) May 15, 2021These guys in the central govt should learn from here ... Humility is the hallmark if the great and the learned while arrogance is the mask the weak use to hide their weakness !!! Innumerable examples exist in history if the above facts !! — Rajesh (@rmohan137india) May 15, 2021Its all about upbringing Anupam. Lalzirliana is sticking to its roots and routine. I am happy such person still exist. — Amitabh Dutta (@duttaamitabh) May 15, 2021very powerful photo, he is protecting a health worker by doing this. — Ravi (@raviohere) May 14, 2021This entire generation of Mizoram politicians are legends. Self discipline is the dedrock of their politics. Salutes. — shubhankar mukherjee (@shubhan48431879) May 15, 2021Wonderful gesture from elected representative... — mohit sharma (@mohit00005) May 15, 2021This is not the first time Lalzirliana has mopped the floor. He had also done the same at Mizoram House during his visit to Delhi in the past. Moreover, it's become a recurring theme in Mizoram to denounce VIP culture. In the past, several ministers have been seen doing chores, using public transport or even cooking during community feasts during festivals. The minister along with his wife had tested positive for COVID-19 on May 11, after their son tested positive on May 8. After being in home isolation, they were shifted to the state's dedicated COVID-19 facility on May 12. “We are fine here. The medical staff and nurses are taking good care of us,” he said.

  13. Michael Vaughan and banter go hand in hand in the world of international cricket with the cricketer always being vocal about his opinions on Twitter. And with the final of the World Test Championship around the corner, the time was ripe for the former England captain to share his two cents on who he believes is the best batsman in the world. Comparisons have always been drawn between Kane Williamson and Virat Kohli, arguably two of the best batsmen across all formats of the game in the world right now. Michael Vaughan also weighed in on the debate and sided with Kane Williamson as his pick for the best batsman in the world. “If Kane Williamson was Indian, he would be the greatest player in the world. But he’s not because you’re not allowed to say that Virat Kohli is not the greatest, because you’d get an absolute pelting on social media," Vaughan had said in an interview to Spark Sport. "If #KaneWilliamson was Indian, he'd be the greatest player in the world, but he's not because you're not allowed to say that #ViratKohli is not the greatest," Vaughan said. #WTCFinal https://t.co/hQfW6tAHTK — India Today Sports (@ITGDsports) May 14, 2021 "So, you all say Virat is the best purely to get few more clicks and likes, few more numbers following here. Kane Williamson, across formats, is equally the best. I think the way he plays, the calm demeanour, his humbleness, the fact that he is silent about what he does,” he added. However, this didn't go down well with Indian fans and here's how they reacted to the tweet: pic.twitter.com/DPwmLHw4hl — Ramesh Khanal (@RameshK54981982) May 14, 2021Ye kabhi nhi sudharega @MichaelVaughan @imVkohli is the best in all formats Kane is only best test player — Rahul saraswat (@RahulSa63634388) May 14, 2021Virat Kohli is the best batsman of this generation and there's absolutely nothing @MichaelVaughan can do about it. pic.twitter.com/WmTvT0kqPi — BABAR KOHLI (@KuntasticAguero) May 14, 2021Virat Kohli is the best batsman of this generation and there's absolutely nothing @MichaelVaughan can do about it. pic.twitter.com/WmTvT0kqPi — BABAR KOHLI (@KuntasticAguero) May 14, 2021 The tweet also caught Wasim Jaffer's attention who was quick to troll Vaughan with his savage tweet. Extra ungli Hrithik ke paas hai par karta Michael Vaughan hai #ViratKohli #KaneWilliamson https://t.co/YRnOyPwwNC — Wasim Jaffer (@WasimJaffer14) May 14, 2021 Wasim Jaffer has garnered quite a bit of a following for himself on Twitter and the former cricketer's quips always get Indian Cricket fans going on the micro blogging platform. However, it wasn't just fans who took note of Jaffer's tweet, Vaughan was also quick to respond to it I presume you are agreeing with me Wasim !! https://t.co/vPS2VBB1mf — Michael Vaughan (@MichaelVaughan) May 14, 2021 Now, how do we explain it to Vaughan that we couldn't translate it for him in English even if we wanted to.
