“If Kane Williamson was Indian, he’d be the greatest player in the world.” This statement from Micheal Vaughan has dragged him under hot water as the comment denotes the ‘irrelevant’ comparison between the two greatest cricketers of the world. Among the critics, the name of Salman Butt, a Pakistani cricketer who was once involved in a major spot-fixing scandal, is also dominant.
Salman found Vaughan’s comparison inappropriate and answered him telling him that Kohli has a huge fan base depending on the dense population of his country. He also added that the Indian skipper has a countable number of tons in all formats whereas, Vaughan has none so the comparison from an opener with no hundreds in ODIs makes no sense.
“Kohli belongs to a country which has a huge population. Obviously, he would have a bigger fanbase. On top of that, his performance is better too. Virat has 70 international tons at the moment, no other batsman from this era has that many.
“And who has compared the two? Michael Vaughan. He was a brilliant captain for England, but the beauty at which he used to bat, his output wasn’t on par. He was a good Test batsman but Vaughan never scored a single century in ODIs. Now, as an opener, if you haven’t scored a century, it’s not worth discussion. It’s just that he has a knack of saying things that stir up a debate. Besides, people have a lot of time to stretch a topic … What Vaughan has said is irrelevant,”
Michael Vaughan insults Salman Butt badly
In reply, Michael insulted Salman Butt using his dull past as he wrote him a fixer on his Twitter and Facebook to shut down the debate. Hopefully, Butt will not be answering further as people continue to troll him after the former England player’s remarks about him.
No idea what the headline is … but I seen what Salman has said about me … that’s fine and he is allowed his opinion but I wished he had such a clear thought of mind back in 2010 when he was Match fixing !!! https://t.co/EkDWuH7Vi4
