Former England skipper Michael Vaughan had a bitter moment on Twitter after he tried to compare the Indian cricket icon MS Dhoni with England cricketer Jos Buttler. The comparison didn't go well with the Indian fans and Vaughan had to face the music.
Vaughan ran a poll on the basis of current form of the two wicket-keepers and asked fans to choose the best one. "Intrigued what you all think...You are allowed 1 of these 2 now in your team... Who you going for on present form ! - MS Dhoni or Jos Buttler??" Vaughan asked on Twitter.

He tweeted the poll after Buttler smashed a brilliant century to guide his team to a 3-0 series-clinching victory in the five-match series over Australia at the Sydney Cricket Ground on Sunday. Buttler faced 83 balls and hit six fours and four sixes in his match-winning knock.
Talking about the poll, Buttler was leading by a huge margin initially. But as always Dhoni finishes things off in style securing 61% of 57,918 votes.
Here is the reaction from fans:
Here is one more poll for you sir. Who was a better batsman ? Hey India, please vote ????— The-Lying-Lama (@KyaUkhaadLega) January 23, 2018

Dhoni is GOD. Jos is good but he is just a human. It will take him 7 more births to stump as fast as Dhoni and score over 15000 runs with almost 50 average— Sunderdeep Singh (@SSunderdeep) January 22, 2018
