Former England captain Michael Vaughan hasn't stopped complaining about the pitch at Chennai for the second Test. It was a turning track which made it tough for the batsmen to survive against spinners. India were dominant in the match and won it easily by 317 runs.

Vaughan felt there should be a fair contest between bat and ball instead of just bowlers ruling the match. The ex-cricketer took his criticism of Indian pitches to a whole new level when he slipped in a reference to the Chennai pitch, which he termed 'poor', while praising a beautiful stadium in Pakistan.

The 46-year-old posted a picture of Gwadar cricket stadium in Balochistan and wrote, “Now this is stunning … looks a lovely prepared pitch as well … #Pakistan".

Vaughan had called the Chennai Pitch a 'beach' after seeing enough assistance to the spin bowlers. However, two Indian batsmen, Rohit Sharma and R Ashwin, had still managed to score a hundred on the same pitch which troubled English batsmen.
