As the trend of chasing side winning the match continues in the ongoing T20I series between India and England, former England skipper Michael Vaughan has picked one factor which will be decisive in winning the ICC T20 World Cup 2021 – which was postponed from last year due to COVID-19 pandemic, scheduled to take place in India later this year.
So far in the ongoing five-match series, three games have been played and in every match, the toss-winning side has gone on to win the game. In the first and third games, England won the toss and went on to win the game while India won the toss in the second game and emerged victorious in the clash.
Also, in all three games, the toss-winning captain has opted to field first. In the third T20I on Tuesday, Jos Buttler and Jonny Bairstow guided England to an eight-wicket victory. Buttler and Bairstow remained unbeaten on 83 and 40 respectively chase down the target comprehensively. The wickets have eased out in the 2nd innings making the life of the batters easy to chase down targets.
The best tosser will win the T20 World Cup – Michael Vaughan
In the wake of it, former English skipper Michael Vaughan believes the ICC T20 World Cup 2021 scheduled to be played later in the year in India, could be won by the best Tosser.
“So it looks like the T20 World Cup in India could be won by the best Tosser !!!! #INDvENG,” Michael Vaughan wrote in the microblogging site Twitter.
