After being whitewashed in the Ashes, visitors England has established their dominion as they sealed the 5-match ODI series with three consecutive victories. Lions wicketkeeper Jos Butler starred in the deciding 3rd ODI as he hit a whirlwind ton to guide his team against Australia. Buttler faced 83 balls and helped himself to six fours and four sixes in his match-winning 100-run knock.

Following Butler’s ton, former England skipper Michael Vaughan heaped praises on the wicketkeeper-batsman and went on to compare him with legendary Indian cricketer MS Dhoni. The 43-year-old had recently rated Buttler higher than Dhoni in one of his media interactions. Although it remains subjective, Vaughan cited that based on recent form, Buttler is undoubtedly a level ahead than his Indian counterpart.

To clear any ambiguity, Vaughn even took to his Twitter handle and created a poll regarding the same. Much to his surprise, the Indian gloveman won the polls by a huge margin, getting 61 percent of the total votes. However, it did not go down well with Vaughan, as he wrote, “Note to self …. Never run a poll asking people to choose an England player over an Indian Player on here … !!!!! “

The fans, meanwhile, were in no mood to let go the Ashes-winning skipper, as they slammed him for comparing Dhoni with Buttler. If the former England skipper had won over the Indian fans by lauding Virat Kohli and praising the Indian team on several occasions, he had also faced their ire for every time he criticised any Indian player or the Indian team.

And with this poll, the former batsman once again attracted the wrath of the Indian fans who trolled him mercilessly on the micro blogging site. Some of the reactions were nothing short of hilarious.
