Virat Kohli-led Indian Cricket Team have been receiving heavy criticism from the cricket fraternity across the globe following their humiliating defeat of an innings and 159-runs against England in the Lord's Test on Sunday (12 August).

Former England skipper Michael Vaughan has criticised Kohli and his brigade for their dismal show at Lord’s. He also lauded England for their superb show against the Number 1 Test side and the way the Lions outplayed India in the Tests at home.

So far in the Test series, India have badly struggled on the English soil especially the batsmen who  have drastically failed to counter the bowling attack having the likes of Broad and Anderson in the opposition. The Lord’s Test ended inside four days and India’s total was 107 and 130in the two innings which highlights the problems they faced against a dominating England bowling line up. 

Courtesy the Lord’s defeat, India is down with 0-2 in the five-match Test series and now they have to win the Nottingham Test to be played from 18 August to be in the series against England.

Following the Lord’s Test, Vaughan took his social media handle to express his delight over England’s dominant show in the Test series, as well as, criticized India for their poor show. He wrote on Twitter, “82.2 overs ... 237 Runs ... 20 wkts ... That was a Test that lasted 170.2 overs ... !!!!!! #2-0

The renowned commentator further went on to tweet regarding the English conditions, in which the hosts certainly dominating but the way they outplayed the No.1 ranked Test side by not giving an inch at any stage was impressive and laudable.

He wrote, “English conditions YES … Would you expect England to Win YES … but to hammer the No1 Team inside 2 allocated days is some effort … I declare it #BeerOclock.”
