Former Indian Test opener, Wasim Jaffer, known for his witty and savage replies, recently responded to allegations about the T20 World Cup schedule favouring Team India. An English cricket website alleged that the T20 World Cup schedule, especially the timing of the semi-finals of the tournament, was designed to give Team India an advantage.

The website claimed that Team India was aware of their semi-final venue (Guyana) and that the match was scheduled to start at 8 PM IST on June 27, which is prime time for India. In contrast, the first semi-final begins at 6 AM IST on June 26 in Trinidad. The website further alleged that there is no reserve day for the second semi-final, while the first semi-final has a reserve day.

Responding to these allegations, Wasim Jaffer came out with a one-line savage reply: “It’s one thing to know where your SF will be played, it’s another thing to qualify for it. For example, WTC Final have always been held in England but England have never qualified.”

As the T20 World Cup approaches, Team India, led by Rohit Sharma, is looking to end their long-standing ICC trophy drought. They will begin their T20 World Cup campaign on June 5 against Ireland. The entire nation eagerly awaits their performance in the T20 World Cup 2024.
