However, Vaughan feels England shouldn’t have rotated players against the ”best team in the world”. His remarks came during the ongoing pink-ball Test as England crumbled in front of the Indian spinners.

“England have treated selection for this series like premier league teams treat the early stages of the FA Cup rounds … #INDvENG Against the best team in the world !!!!!!!” Vaughan tweeted.

Axar Patel and seasoned off-spinner Ravichandran Ashwin had a field day as India bundled out England for a paltry 112 in the first innings on the opening day of the pink-ball Test at the Narendra Modi Stadium.
