Former England skipper Michael Vaughan on Sunday gave his prediction as to who will be winning the next year’s T20 World Cup slated to be played in Australia. But as expected, he was soon under fire from Twitter users, who couldn’t help but notice the fact that Virat Kohli’s India were not amongst his predicted winners.
Vaughan said that either England or Australia would be winning the tournament.
“Early T20 World Cup prediction … England or Australia will be winning it … #JustSaying,” Vaughan tweeted.

Soon after, Vaughan had begun being trolled by users online with many complaining about the fact that powerhouse India wasn’t among his favourites.
Since win by boundary count is now scrapped, England now need to look for some loophole from the rule book

On Sunday, England defeated New Zealand in the final match of the five-match T20I series to win the series 3-2.
The match went into a super over as normal action concluded in a tie. This was the second super over between both the sides this year.
Earlier, England and New Zealand played a super over in the final of ICC Cricket World Cup. The super over also ended up as a tie and England was announced as the winner on the basis of the boundary-countback rule.
The final T20I between England and New Zealand was a curtailed affair as rain played spoilsport and as a result, the game was reduced to 11-overs per side.
New Zealand scored 146/5 in 11 overs and England registered the same score in the allotted overs.
Earlier this week, Australia defeated Pakistan to win the three-match series 2-0.
Australia did not lose a single T20I in 2019 and they managed to win seven out of eight matches.
The Men’s T20 World Cup will be played next year from October 18 – November 15.
