The pictures of newly built Motera Stadium has already created a buzz on social media among the fans and cricketers alike. Michael Vaughan, the former England skipper also reacted to the venue which is expected to be inaugurated by US President Donald Trump really soon.
Michael Vaughan, who is very active on the micro-blogging site Twitter, seems to be having the habit of messing with the Indian cricket fans. Every now and then, Michael comes up with a comment to irk the Indian fans who later troll him left, right and center for his comment. After BCCI shared some beautiful pictures of the stadium, Michael Vaughan tried his old trick again.
