Former England cricketer Michael Vaughan took a dig at the Pakistan cricket team and said that the Men in Green need controversy to win the match. Vaughan, who is known for his blunt remarks and banters, made the comment ahead of Pakistan’s must-win game against New Zealand in the ODI World Cup 2023 on November 4, Saturday. The former skipper said that he is ‘worried’ as "it's been too calm this last couple of days.”

The ex-English skipper made his remarks on the Club Prairie Fire podcast and shared the video on his Twitter account on Saturday, November 4. On the podcast, he said, "If you go back to the history of the World Cup, the World Cup doesn't start until there's controversy with Pakistan. Until someone falls-out... I don't understand why don't they sack everyone the day the tournament starts off. Everyone resigns... they'd win every World Cup. What are they waiting for?"

Notably, Pakistan Chief Selector Inzamam-ul-Haq resigned from his post earlier this week after the Men in Green lost four games. Haq was accused of allegedly having shares in a prominent player management company.
