Rohit said to DJ, just do not play ‘Dil, Dil, Pakistan’: Michael Vaughan takes savage dig at Mickey Arthur for his bizarre statement

Michael Vaughan, the former captain of England, has taken a savage dig at the head coach Mickey Arthur for his bizarre statement about ‘Dil Dil Pakistan’ not playing at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad after his team lost to India by seven wickets on October 14. The 48-year-old, who was on a podcast, analysing the ODI World Cup 2023, alongside Adam Gilchrist, sarcastically stated that, “Rohit obviously said to the DJ, just do not play ‘Dil Dil Pakistan.’”

For the unversed, after India managed to bowl out Pakistan for 191, following a decent start from the top order of the Men in Green, they chased the runs down with ultimate ease, thanks to a breathtaking fifty from the captain Rohit Sharma. In the post-match presentation, Mickey Arthur made surprising comments, which drew a lot of criticism from the cricketing community, including the fans and experts alike, but nothing quite like how Michael Vaughan addressed it.

On the recent episode of the Club Prairie podcast, Michael Vaughan jokingly said, “But his (Rohit Sharma’s) best move and without doubt, the move that won them the game and the Pakistan coach alluded to it afterwards, is Rohit obviously said to the DJ, just do not play ‘Dil Dil Pakistan.’ If you play ‘Dil Dil….,’ they are gonna win, Pakistan will win. So do not play that song pre-match. Make sure that they don’t hear that inspirational song that obviously makes them play so well.”

We have beaten them seven times in World Cups, but if we play ‘Dil Dil….’ today, they are gonna beat us. So, that was (inaudible) from Rohit. That was clever. Most captains don’t think of things like that – DJs and music. Rohit is ahead of his time,” he further added.

After having a great laugh while Michael Vaughan took a savage dig at Mickey Arthur, the former ODI World Cup 2023 winner for Australia, Adam Gilchrist was left quite impressed as he said to him in appreciation, “Cagey, cagey.”
