Former England skipper Michael Vaughan was criticized for calling Test pitches in India as boring.
Vaughan said that Test match pitches in India offer skewed affairs.
He made the comments during the ongoing Test between India and South Africa.
“Test Match Cricket pitches in India are boring … The first 3/4 days the contest is far too in favour of the Bat … needs more action for the bowler … My thought of the day … #INDvSA,” Vaughan Tweeted.
But Indian cricket fans did not take the comments lightly and slammed Vaughan with their replies on social media.

If bowl spin too much from 1st day, its a doctored pitch. If its not, its a flat pitch. What you want us to do ? Its fucking india not sa or england, we cant produce pitches like those, our climats doesn’t allow us.

If thats true don’t you think England should have batted a lot better after winning toss all Tests last tour? They should piled on runs and misery on India. But they lost 4-0. Indian conditions are such you cannot have green tracks and swing like England. I thought you knew that

The point is that foreign players don’t know how to use them.
Btw Indian bowlers got 3 wickets in 15 overs on same pitch only & it’s day 2 .@MichaelVaughan
