Michael Vaughan jokingly accuses Indian spinners of tampering ball against England

New Delhi: After a disappointing outing in Rajkot, Indian spinners looked to be in sync once again in Vizag, where Ravichandran Ashwin and Jayant Yadav picked up 2 and 1 wickets respectively as England lost 5 wickets for 103 on Day 2.

Seeing English batsman struggle against slow bowlers yet again, former England captain Michael Vaughan tweeted, "I tell you what England will have to suck a lot of mints to get out of the this hole .."

Vaughan indirectly was taking a subtle dig at the ongoing furore involving South African captain Faf du Plesis, who has been found guilty of breaching ICC's Code of Conduct when he used a lolly in mouth to provide ball extra shine in 2nd Test against Australia at Hobart.

Vaughan also joked that Indian spinners might have been using 'Humbugs' (a candy) to get the ball turn so much on Day 2.

"Quite Clearly India must have been putting plenty of Humbugs on the ball today to make it Spin so much," wrote Vaughan on his twitter wall.

The former England great also accused Alastair Cook and Co. of going back in the Bangladesh zone.

Speaking to BBC, Vaughan said, "They have gone back to the Bangladesh mode of bowling too many short balls, too many full tosses."

He also doubted England spinners' ability to get the best out of the pitch in Vizag by stating, "In these conditions, under pressure, can the spinners hold a length?"

"They did it in Rajkot, but there was a massive score on the board and they weren't under pressure," added. India have learned they can put England's spinners under more pressure." added Vaughan.
