Former Australian skipper Adam Gilchrist and ex-English cricketer Michael Vaughan lambasted ICC (International Cricket Council) for the supposed scheduling 2024 T20 World Cup. Thus, accusing the cricket body of favoritism for India.

In their Club Prairie Fire podcast, both Gilchrist and Vaughan lambasted the ICC for this alleged favoritism.

Quoting Republic, Ex-England captain Michael Vaughan spoke the most saying, ‘It’s their tournament, isn’t it? Literally, it’s their tournament. They get to play whenever they want, they get to know exactly where their semi-finals are, they play every single game in the morning so people can watch them in India on the television. I get that money’s a big play in the world of cricket, and I get that in bilateral series, but you would think that when you get to a World Cup the ICC should be a little bit fairer to everybody.’

Later, Vaughan also added, that even though he understands financial value associated with bilateral series, but ICC tournaments should not be partial and emphasized, that one team shouldn’t dominate the tournament. But in the end, he declared, ‘This tournament is purely set up for India, simple as that.’

Former Australian skipper Adam Gilchrist also supported Vaughan’s view saying, that a lot of Indian fans recognize this bias.

However, Gilchrist admitted, that Team India is a most consistent team barring South Africa. But he said, that fairness and impartiality should be there in the tournament.
