Former India all-rounder Irfan Pathan took a cheeky dig at former England cricketers and fans who are blaming the Indian Premier League (IPL) for the cancellation of the fifth Test in Manchester. After the COVID-19 outbreak in the Indian camp, the BCCI and ECB decided to call off the match.
While many fans claimed that BCCI rule cricket and Test cricket doesn’t matter to them, former England skipper Michael Vaughan directly blamed the league for the cancellation of the match.
“IPL teams chartering planes .. 6 days quarantining required in the UAE .. 7 days till the tournament starts !!!! Don’t tell me the Test was cancelled for any other reason but the IPL,” he wrote.
Irfan Pathan was not happy by the turn of events and took a dig at the critics of the IPL.
“My tooth fell of, can I blame the @IPL ?? #easytarget,” he wrote.
