Former England captain Michael Vaughan has termed the India-Pakistan rivalry bigger than the Ashes series while talking about the T20 World Cup 2022.
Vaughan believes that the epic rivalry between the two neighboring giants India and Pakistan is the biggest in world cricket outweighing the epic old age rivalry between England and Australia- The Ashes.
“I think, we being England and Australia ex-players, we all kind of think of the Ashes as the biggest game in world cricket, it’s not! India vs Pakistan is the biggest game,” Michael Vaughan said on a Star Sports show.
Rohit Sharma has been appointed as the new white-ball captain of the Indian team after replacing Virat Kohli. Ex-England skipper is also looking to see how Rohit handles the pressure of the captaincy.
“Looking forward to Rohit Sharma being the captain, probably the first time he’s going to be under real pressure. It’s going to be an epic event,” Vaughan added while talking about the high voltage clash.
The International Cricket Council (ICC) has released the fixtures of the 2022 T20 World Cup as India and Pakistan will lock horns on October 23 in Melbourne.
India, Pakistan, South Africa, Bangladesh have all been placed in Group 2 of the tournament and the winner of Group B and runner-up of Group A will also join the group. The T20 World Cup 2022 will roll into action from October 16 and will be played across the seven venues in Australia.
