Michael Vaughan got angry at Rohit Sharma, said - 'Lax and average captaincy in the entire match'

Indian cricket team captain Rohit Sharma has come under the target of critics after the defeat in the first test against England. Former England captain Michael Vaughan has also raised questions on Rohit's captaincy after India's defeat in Hyderabad. Michael Vaughan reprimanded Rohit, saying that he captained very averagely in the first Test and had no answer to Ollie Popp's sweeps and reverse sweeps.

India lost by 28 runs in the Hyderabad Test and the main reason for India's defeat was debutant Tom Hartley, who took 7 wickets for 62 runs in the second innings and destroyed the Indian batting. At one time the host team was 42-0, but as soon as the openers were out, the entire team was reduced to 202 runs in 69.2 overs. The surprising thing was that the host team had achieved a lead of 190 runs in the first innings but despite this, Rohit Sharma's team lost.

In his column in The Telegraph, Vaughan wrote, “Beating this Indian team is the best Test match victory of my life. England have had some sensational away wins over the years. But what England have done in Hyderabad right now is on top of them all, it is number one for me. Nobody does this in India with Indians. Look at what England has achieved. India is one of the best Test teams ever on home soil. There was real turn in the wicket. At the same time, England fell behind by 190 runs in the first innings. Despite gaining such a huge lead, India has never lost a Test at home, what England has achieved is truly incredible. This is the best win, home or away, as long as I have been associated with English cricket."

Vaughan further wrote, “In India's defeat in Hyderabad, I felt that Rohit Sharma's captaincy was very average. I thought he was so reactive, I don't think he changed his fielding or his bowling properly and he had no answer to Ollie Pope's sweep or reverse sweep."
