Michael Vaughan Defames SL National Anthem: Says He Went To Toilet And Made A Cake During SL Anthem

Former English Cricket captain Michael Vaughan had posted a defamatory tweet about the Sri Lankan national anthem. 

The tweet came ahead of the Sri Lanka - England T20 match in the T20 World Cup which is presently underway in Bangladesh. 

Michael Vaughan posted 'just rung home, made a brew, been to the toilet and made a cake during the Sri Lankan national anthem."

Vaughan, despite being an Ashes winning captain for England, was forced to retire from cricket in 2009 due to poor performance.

Having failed to secure a position in the national team, he continued to perform poorly during county seasons too. In seven County Championship matches in 2009, he had scored just 147 runs at an average of 21.00, by some way the lowest of Yorkshire's top-order batsmen. His last innings of 47 versus Worcestershire was his highest for Yorkshire since June 2008, and he had not hit a century since May 2002. In all, since the 2005 Ashes, he had rolled up a mere 747 Yorkshire runs at 25.75.
