England defeated India in the 5-match Investec Test series in England 3-1 on Sunday, by winning the third Test by an innings and 244 runs. The series was peculiar in the sense that India lost two games inside three days, both being innings defeats.

Former England captain Michael Vaughan took to Twitter to rant about the defeat and celebrate in his own unique way. 

He began by posting this 'new Indian cricket flag' as he called it:

This tweet sparked outrage from Indians:

However, Vaughan was already on an India-bashing spree:

Then came some obvious sarcasm:

Vaughan also mentioned his own, older tweet predicting India's 3-1 defeat:

He also tried to justify his tweets:

India's 1-3 loss was devastating not for the scoreline but for the magnitude of the last three defeats - 266 runs, an innings and 54 runs and finally an innings and 244 runs. However, Michael Vaughan's sarcasm ruffled a few feathers on social media and is unlikely to be taken lightly by Indian cricket fans. He was obviously joyous, but the emotion seemed to be directed more at India than at England.
