Michael Vaughan’s overconfidence shattered with Sri Lanka’s win

ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 has come to life with another nail-biting thriller between Sri Lanka and England at Leeds. The tournament is wide open now with the victory of Sri Lanka. Cricket fraternity has considered it as a big upset in this World cup considering the recent form of both teams.

England's veteran player, Michael Vaughan was way too confident about England thrashing Sri Lanka before the start of play. He expected England to score 400 runs if they had batted first.

But his thoughts changed throughout the match, as Sri Lanka strengthened their roots courtesy inexplicable performance from Lasith Malinga. England's batting line was derailed by some exquisite bowling from the Sri Lankan lions and simultaneously Vaughan's flaunty perceptions also came to an end.
