After losing face with their 8-wicket defeat in Adelaide, everyone expected that the series between India and Australia would go one-sided, the absence of the star players of the team like Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma added to everyone’s speculations.
Looking at the situation back then, former English captain Michael Vaughan predicted that India would be hammered with 4-0 in the test series.
Told ya … India are going to get hammered in the Test Series … #AUSvIND #4-0

However, the Indian cricket team, lead by Ajinkya Rahane, batted their way to victory to level the Border-Gavaskar Trophy at 1-1 with their 8-wicket victory at the Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG) on Tuesday.

Vaughan’s tweet had already offended Indian fans. Therefore, when India did a magical comeback, everyone revisited Vaughan’s profile to give him the taste of his own medicine.
He was brutally ‘hammered’ online after his prediction went South. Take a look:

But being a gentleman, Vaughan served a ‘humble pie’ for breakfast and said that he was happy to see the ‘underdog’ proving people wrong.
Humble pie for Breakfast … !!! Love the under dog proving people wrong … also shows once again if Steve Smith struggles with the Bat this Aussie Batting team is very average … @ajinkyarahane88 captaincy has been magnificent btw … #OnOn #AUSvIND

The Indian team stole the show and how! Well, there’s a reason why people say, don’t talk too much or too soon, haina Vaughan?
