Former England captain Michael Vaughan was trolled on Monday for counting out India’s chances of winning the ICC T20 World Cup (WC) that would be held next year in Australia. Vaughan tweeted that “Early T20 World Cup prediction … England or Australia will be winning it … #JustSaying”.

Indian fans were quick to remind Vaughan that the boundary count rule is gone and trolled him by tweeting that the English side would now have to find new loopholes to win.
Since win by boundary count is now scrapped, England now need to look for some loophole from the rule book— Catches Win Matches (@CSKIPL15) November 10, 2019

England got defeated by 1-2 last year against India in their own flat pitches backyard
The tweet from Vaughan came after England beat New Zealand in a thrilling series decider that went down to super over yesterday. England beat New Zealand to take the series 3-2 after going 2-1 down and Vaughan was ecstatic enough to bring in early predictions for the T20 WC.
The ICC T20 Cricket WC is scheduled to take place from October 18 to November 15 next year in Australia.
