Wasim Jaffer trolls Michael Vaughan: It is that time of the cricketing season where all the cricket fanatics and pundits are busy with their predictions for the upcoming edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL). In the first match of IPL 2021, the defending champions Mumbai Indians (MI) will be taking on the Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) on April 9 in Chennai. All the eight teams this year have some really talented players who have the ability to become match-winners in all kinds of situations.
Recently, former England captain Michael Vaughan took to Twitter to pick his two favourites to win the upcoming season of the IPL. Vaughan mentioned that according to him, Mumbai Indians are the favourites to win their sixth IPL title while he also picked the Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) as his second favourites. However, in reply, former Indian cricketer Wasim Jaffer brutally trolled the former English skipper with a hilarious meme depicting how Vaughan’s early predictions have gone terribly wrong in the past. The Punjab Kings batting coach took a fierce jibe against Michael for actually jinxing Mumbai and Hyderabad’s title chances this year.
Both the former cricketers have engaged in some exciting banters on Twitter in the recent while.
While taking a look at the recent spike in the number of coronavirus cases in India, it will surely be an uphill task for the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) to conduct the tournament safely across the six venues namely Bengaluru, Mumbai, Chennai, Ahmedabad, Kolkata and Delhi. Out of the 56 league-stage fixtures, Mumbai, Chennai, Kolkata and Bengaluru will get to host a total of 10 matches each while Ahmedabad and Delhi will host 8 matches each. The BCCI has also stated that all the matches will be played at neutral venues and thus, no team will play at their home venue in IPL 2021.
