Michael Vaughan slams Pakistan fan for his remark about England’s loss to South Africa in T20 WC’24

On Friday, June 21, England lost by seven runs against South Africa in the Super 8 Group 2 clash in the T20 World Cup 2024, at the Daren Sammy National Cricket Stadium in Gros Islet, St Lucia. In the immediate aftermath, a Pakistani fan tried to troll the former England captain, Michael Vaughan, about the recent loss. In response, he indirectly called the USA a better team than Pakistan in a savage reply.

For the unversed, England were chasing a below-par total of 162 runs against South Africa, to get one foot in the door to a semifinal place in the T20 World Cup 2024. But, the English top order didn’t get going, putting immense pressure on the middle order, who brought them back into the contest.   Check the top betting trends on the best betting apps in sites and  mostbet promo code .

Harry Brook and Liam Livingstone’s 78-run stand for the sixth wicket got England to the brink of the target, but their dismissals in the key moment led to yet another narrow win for South Africa in the T20 World Cup 2024. Apart from their bowlers, the stars of the show for the Proteas with the bat were Quinton de Kock and David Miller.

Shortly after, a Pakistani fan sent out a post with the screenshot of England’s seven-run defeat against South Africa, tagging Michael Vaughan with a caption, “What happened bro..,”. The former England captain went on to reply, “When you make the Super 8s you play good teams .. Like the USA”.

It’s important to note that Pakistan exited the T20 World Cup 2024 after a shock defeat in the super over against the co-hosts USA, the newest rising nation in the world of cricket.

Moreover, the second match of the day in the Super 8 Group 2 had West Indies get the better of the USA, chasing down the 129-run target with nine wickets in hand and 55 balls to spare, to get back into contention for a place in the semifinal. The star performers for West Indies on the night were Andre Russell, Roston Chase, and Shai Hope.
