ENG v IND 2018: Michael Vaughan's 'simple equation' for England to win the third Test backfired on Twitter

Fans roasted the former England cricketer for his suggestion.

Finally, India has shown fighting spirit in the Test series against England. The visitors were knocked down by 2-0 and when another loss would have resulted in a series loss, the Virat Kohli's men came back strong.

In the third Test, India crossed the 300-run mark in both innings, on top of it, they managed to bowl out England on just 161 runs in first innings. The tourists set a humongous target of 521 runs for Englishmen, who wouldn't have forgotten they lost all 10 wickets in just a session earlier in this test match. 

At the end of third day's play, England openers Keaton Jennings and Alastair Cook walked back without getting dismissed. They still need 498 runs with 23/0 on the board. 

Former English captain, Michael Vaughan tried to make things a little easy for the England batsmen mentally. He tweeted that the hosts should bat innings by innings to avoid a defeat here. "Simple Equation ... England have 6 sessions to Bat to win the series ... !!!!!!!!!!!! #EngvInd." 

The tweet backfired Vaughan and once again fans were after him like a swarm of bees get attracted by a honeysuckle. Here are the tweets:
