India have left me with egg on my face, says Vaughan


London, January 20

Former England captain Michael Vaughan today said he was left with egg on his face after his prediction of an Australian whitewash of India in the just-concluded Test series went horribly wrong. Vaughan had earlier predicted that India will be whitewashed 4-0 in the Test series after the visitors lost the first Test in Adelaide by eight wickets following a dramatic collapse where they were bowled out for their lowest-ever Test score of 36.

However, India recovered from that loss to win the series 2-1. “India looked shot after that match and with all the selection issues they had, even India’s most one-eyed fans would not have predicted a comeback. Well, they have left me with egg on my face,” Vaughan wrote in Daily Telegraph. “But honestly? I don’t care. When you have cricket that good, and remarkable performances from rookie players such as Shubman Gill, Washington Sundar and Shardul Thakur, I have no problem in being proved wrong.”

Vaughan was critical of Tim Paine’s captaincy. “I always feel that captains should be judged on how they marshal a tight match, rather than how they lead in an easy victory, and Paine is making some strange calls,” he wrote. — PTI
