Even Michael Vaughan is Making Fun of ICC for Its India Bias

The International Cricket Council (ICC) is notorious for favoring India owing to the country’s huge role in generating revenues for the watchdog.

Often labeled as the Indian Cricket Council, the cricket’s governing body recently shared a tweet ahead of India’s clash against South Africa.

The graphic showed Indian Virat Kohli with a King’s crown which triggered many neutral cricket fans around the globe. Former England captain, Michael Vaughan didn’t like the fact that the ICC went overboard with Kohli’s praise ahead of an important encounter.

The 44-year-old took to Twitter to take a jibe at the governing body.

While the Indian Captain may have won many accolades and he might well be the King of the game, the ICC’s official Twitter handle could have done better since its bias in favor of India is quite evident.

The account had to give the justification for the image following Vaughan’s comment.

ICC’s bias towards India is not an alien concept, considering the double standards it has in place for the stronger boards like the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI).

What the ICC forgot was that they had tweeted a crown alongside hashtags TeamIndia and Cricket World Cup 2019, clearly depicting that India will be the World Champions this year.

Another tweet by the official handle for Cricket World Cup 2019 only makes the case against ICC stronger.

The officials are yet to offer similar praise to any other international batsman, bowler or all-rounder.

Do you think the graphic is justified? Let us know in the comments section.

  • Extremely unjustified. In such a case, other players like Babar Azam, Root, Williamson, Smith who have the same performance and average in all formats of cricket must also be given similar coverage and praise by ICC.
    Moreover, biaseness of ICC is visible from their action against MS Dhoni (just a request) by wearing indian army’s tag gloves. Had it be any Pakistani player, they must have removed him from cricket atleast for a year.

  • Even the commentators were just appraising the Indian players during the match between India vs Ausies but a few. Shameless selling of cricket to the greed for money. This world cup no charm.

  • Favourites never won in the cwc since its inception. Every rise has a fall. Icc batsmen friendly approach and rules are killing this game. In any eco system if predators vanish herbivores flourish. Last decade was worst in terms of policies by icc. Big three and now India centric. No doubt India is the best batting talent with batsmen of character and nerves of steel owing to dearth of quality swing and pace bowling. My good wishes are for Indian team but I at the same time feel that icc should be more impartial and cricket supporting rather than pleasing healthier boards. This is not good for the game.

  • If that’s the case (winner is fixed) then thank God, no team is to be blamed for their performances and even the rain pouring over…

  • BCCI TAKING FULL ADVANTAGE OF IPL AS HUGE AMOUNT RECEIVED BY OVERSEAS PLAYERS SO THEY KNOW THAT IF THEY PERFORM AGAINST INDIA, THEY WILL NOT BE BOUGHT BY ANY FRANCHISE JUST LIKE PAKISTANI PLAYERS WHO WERE NOT PICKED UP BECAUSE THEY WILL NOT COMPROMISE ON PEROFORMANCE AGAINST HUGE MONEY OFFERS. WARNERS PERFORMANCE AGAINST INDIA IS AN EXAMPLE۔

  • Indian Cricket Council sorry International Cricket Council😷😷😷😷😷😷😷😷😷😷😷😷😷
