Former England skipper Michael Vaughan rightly predicted that Virat Kohli will hit a century in second India vs South Africa Test match at Pune, but ended up facing the wrath of fans for slamming cricket pitches in India.

On Day 2 of the Pune Test, Kohli hit his 26th Test century thus joining Aussie great Ricky Ponting in the second place for most tons as a captain. Vaughan on Friday tweeted, "Early signs of a Kohli 100," and once Kohli reached the three-figures, he tweeted again. This time a gentle reminder: "Told you".

But, minutes later Vaughan shared his "thought of the day": "Test match cricket pitches in India are boring ... The first 3/4 days the contest is far too in favour of the Bat ... needs more action for the bowler".

And it became a massive talking point, with fans wholeheartedly engaging in the discussion. But the majority of them thought Vaughan was wrong.
