Michael Vaughan Lambasts England After Their Poor Performance In T20 World Cup 2024

Former England cricketer Michael Vaughan strongly criticized the national team for poor performance in the ongoing T20 World Cup 2024. Vaughan highlighted that the England team has been declining in white-ball cricket and lacking strong leadership during this important tournament.

As the defending champions of the ICC T20 World Cup 2022, England started their campaign poorly. Having not won any matches in the T20 World Cup 2024, England will aim to perform better in their upcoming games against Namibia and Oman in Group B.

Vaughan criticized Jos Buttler’s team for being too relaxed in the tournament. He said the England team keeps making the same mistakes, which has caused their poor performance.

“We should not be surprised that England is in this mess. It has been far too cozy for too long in the white-ball set up. The team has been in decline for a while and is making the same mistakes all over again in selection and tactics. Looking from the outside, it seems to me the players are too powerful. It is all lovely and nice in the set-up, but I have never seen lovely and nice win World Cups,” Vaughan wrote in his column for The Telegraph.

England performed poorly against Scotland, allowing them to score 90 runs in the first 10 overs. The game ended in a washout, and both teams got a point each in Barbados on June 4. At the same venue, England played against Australia and lost by 36 runs, failing to chase the target of 202 runs.

“In 2019 England won the World Cup playing fearless cricket but Eoin Morgan ran that team with an iron fist. Players knew where they stood and were wary of crossing him,” Vaughan added.
