Ahead of the brand new IPL 2021, former cricketers and cricket experts have been deeply analyzing the game. Each and everyone are coming up with early predictions. Former England captain Michael Vaughan decided to make yet another early prediction on his official Twitter handle.
The former England international was pretty much confident that Mumbai Indians would win the title this time too. Mumbai Indians were crowned the champions of IPL 2020. In fact, they defended the trophy for the first time in history.
No team has dominated the league by winning three titles in a row. But Vaughan believes Mumbai Indians have all the tools and machineries to go on to win the title. In exceptional cases, if Mumbai Indians lose their plot, then Vaughan picks Sunrisers Hyderabad as the favourites.
Wasim Jaffer posts a hilarious meme after Vaughan predicts winner of IPL 2021
Sunrisers Hyderabad were the winners of IPL 2016 season. They also made it into the final in 2018 season where they were defeated by Chennai Super Kings. SRH qualified for the IPL 2020 playoffs by finishing third in the table. They also knocked RCB out of the tournament.
“Early #IPL2021 prediction … @mipaltan will win it … if by some bizarre loss of form then @SunRisers will win it … #OnOn #India,” Vaughan wrote. The former England captain’s response went viral in no time.
Meanwhile, former Indian opener Wasim Jaffer replied with a hilarious meme. Jaffer doesn’t shy away from trolling experts in the form of memes. This time too he provided some sort of entertainment to his fans. Fans can’t wait for the tournament to go all guns blazing.
