Former England captain Michael Vaughan recently took to Twitter and slammed the International Cricket Council (ICC) following the IND W vs ENG W semi-final washout affair. Michael Vaughan criticised the governing body for not scheduling any reserve day for the all-important knockout fixtures. As a result, the Indian Women team qualified for the title clash on March 8 while the England Women were crashed out of the tournament.
No reserve days for World Cup semi Finals ... What a shambles ... !! #T20WorldCup— Michael Vaughan (@MichaelVaughan) March 5, 2020
In his tweet, Michael Vaughan described the entire affair as “shambles” on part of the ICC. Meanwhile, fans took to Twitter and called out Vaughan’s hypocrisy by recalling the 2019 ICC World Cup final ‘boundary count’ incident. Fans took to the micro-blogging site and were quick to remind Michael Vaughan about 2019 final immediately after his response of having no reserve day in the IND W vs ENG W semi-final. After facing severe backlash on Twitter, Michael Vaughan reacted with another tweet where he described the responding fans as “muppets” while stating that England team displayed skills in 2019 final to emerge as World Champions.
All you muppets saying it’s karma,do one ... At least the England men’s team had to produce skill on the day ... to not have a chance to produce skill and it to be taken away by the weather is a shambles ... anyway Morning everyone #T20WorldCup— Michael Vaughan (@MichaelVaughan) March 5, 2020
Unfortunately for Michael Vaughan, the former cricketer was further trolled by fans for trying to defend England’s 2019 World Cup win.
