Birmingham: India middle-order batsman VVS Laxman lashed out at Michael Vaughan for virtually accusing him of wrong-doing in the Vaseline episode.
The former England skipper accused Laxman of applying Vaseline to his bat so that the Hot Spot technology would not detect the edge. "Has Vaseline on the outside edge saved the day for Laxman?" tweeted Vaughan after the third umpire ruled the Indian not out as England pressed for the Umpire Decision Review System (UDRS) in the second Test at Trent Bridge recently.
"It was ridiculous," a visibly peeved Laxman told MiD DAY after a net session on Monday.
