Michael Vaughan lambasts at ICC for T20 WC schedule, alleges tournament of being India-centric: ‘It’s so unfair on…’

Former cricketer Michael Vaughan has expressed his anger at the ICC for its ineffective management of the T20 World Cup tournament schedule. In his recent post on X, Vaughan mentioned how South Africa team players were unable to practice or get accustomed to the new venue because of the flight delay. In his another post, Vaughan also alleged the T20 World Cup tournament to be completely centered on India.

“Surely this Semi should have been the Guyana one .. but because the whole event is geared towards India it’s so unfair on others,” Vaughan wrote on X.

Venting anger at ICC for T20 World Cup management schedule, Vaughan wrote, “ So Afghanistan qualify for the WC semi winning in St Vincent on Monday night .. 4 hr flight delay on Tues to Trinidad so no time to practice or get accustomed to a new venue .. utter lack of respect to players i am afraid .. #T20WorldCup2024.”

Earlier, Indian cricket team captain Rohit Sharma also raised concerns about the ICC’s scheduling decisions. “The overhead conditions is in nobody’s control, you don’t know what is going to happen. The only thing I am worried is if the game goes on till pretty late we have a chartered flight and we might miss that,” said Rohit in a press conference in reference to the India vs England match set to take place on Thursday, June 27.

The ICC had pre-determined that the second semifinal, in which India had secured a fixed spot, didn’t have a reserve day in case of rain. The decision was questioned by the Indian cricket team captain. Moreover, there were accusations on ICC for bending rules in favour of India.
