US President Donald Trump's mispronunciation of Indian legend Sachin Tendulkar's name, during his visit to India, immediately went viral on social media and became the talk of the town.

Thousands of fans and other people from the cricket community had some hilarious reactions to Donald Trump's mispronunciations during his speech. However, none could match that of former England cricketer Michael Vaughan as he could not stop talking about Trump.

Michael Vaughan now began to wonder as to how would Donald Trump pronounce the name of Pakistan cricketer Fakhar Zaman whenever he happens to visit the country. Vaughan took to Twitter to share his post saying, "Can't wait for @realDonaldTrump to visit Pakistan & see how he pronounces Fakhar Zaman ..!!!" tweeted Vaughan on Tuesday. See his post below.

Earlier in the day, Michale Vaughan had first tweeted a hilarious caption just as Donald Trump's 'Soochin' mispronunciation hit the internet, Vaughan wrote, "How are you today Sue Chin @sachin_rt !!!! #DonaldTrumpIndiaVisit".

Speaking at the 'Namaste Trump' event at the Motera Stadium in Ahmedabad on Monday, the US President had said: "This is the country, where your people cheer on some of the world's greatest cricket players from Sachin Tendulkar to Virat Kohli."

Even the International Cricket Council (ICC) trolled the US President. On its official Twitter handle, the ICC posted a video "changing" Sachin's name to "Soochin Tendulkar" on their website, captioning the tongue-in-cheek post "Sach- Such- Satch- Sutch- Sooch- Anyone know?" In the 15-second video clip, the ICC is seen changing Tendulkar's name in the personal information section to Soo-chin and then saving the changes.
