Former England Test captain Michael Vaughan didn't hold back, taking a dig at India's star players, Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli and Ravindra Jadeja, following their retirement from T20Is. 

After India's T20 World Cup victory over South Africa by seven runs at Kensington Oval, Barbados, on June 29, Rohit and Kohli announced their retirement from T20 internationals. The following day, all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja also announced his retirement.

On a Youtube podcast, Vaughan criticized the trio for not winning more ICC trophies during their careers. 

They should have won more white ball trophies: Vaughan

“They’ll all agree that it is a perfect way to go, but they should have won more white ball trophies amongst them. To think that he (Rohit) has taken another 17 years to get another one in his hand, I think he will be the first one to admit that they should have won one or two more,” Vaughan remarked.

Vaughan also suggested that Rohit, Kohli, and Jadeja can now focus on Test matches, ODIs, and the IPL, drawing a parallel to former captain MS Dhoni's career trajectory.

“What a way to go out with a win in Barbados and a trophy in your hand! Now they can sit back and play Test cricket, a bit of one-day cricket, and in the IPL, like MS Dhoni, play on forever. In Indian cricket, they will be replaced as there’s plenty of talent in that team,” he added.

Looking ahead, these star players are expected to be back in action against Bangladesh, with the Test series commencing on September 19.
