Exactly a day after saying "I don't know how India got the favourites tag", former English captain Michael Vaughan has called the Men in Blue "hot favourites" to win the ongoing T20 World Cup. Guess there's very little separating Vaughan and the English weather these days.

Taking to Twitter, Vaughan said, "The way India are playing the warm up games suggests they may be now Hot favourites to Win the #T20WorldCup !!!"


Vaughan is never far from making the headlines with his comments. After the Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) lost to the Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) in the Eliminator on Monday, Vaughan said that Kohli "fell a long way short" as RCB captain.

Speaking to Cricbuzz, Vaughan had said, "His legacy as captain in IPL cricket will be one that didn't win. That's what it's about, you know high-level sport is about getting over the line, winning trophies, particularly when you're at the standard of what Virat Kohli is at. I'm certainly not saying that he is, but he will see himself as a failure in IPL captaincy -- because he is such a driven player and person - since he's not got that trophy in his hands."

India begin their campaign against arch-rivals Pakistan on October 24.
