After such a shameful performance, former England cricketer Michael Vaughan took a dig at Indian team for not performing well in the final of ICC Champions Trophy 2017.

In a tweet, Vaughan said that India should restrict themselves to Hockey only as Indian Hockey team on the same day thrashed Pakistan 7-1 in the semi-final of the World Hockey League.

“India need to stick to playing Hockey …. !!!!!! #PAKvIND” he tweeted after India’s defeat.

However, Vaughan’s tweet can be seen in the context of Indian team’s defeat against Pakistan in the Champions Trophy.
