The participating teams have already announced their squads for the coming event, while others will announce soon. It will start on June 1 with four different groups with five teams each. Two teams from every group will make it to the Super 8 where the top four will qualify for the semis.

It will be tough as the best teams will be competing in the tournament, and to make it even in the top four will be a big thing. However, with the mega event not one month away, the predictions have started. Many former cricketers have started predicting the teams that might make it into the top four.

Former English captain Michael Vaughan, who is very active on social media and never shies away from sharing his views on major cricket events, comes with a bold prediction. He has picked England, South Africa, Australia and West Indies as his top four picks.

England is the defending champion and has announced a strong side for the upcoming event, while South Africa and Australia have also announced a pretty good squad. West Indies will be playing in home conditions, and they also have a destructive combination, which makes them a dark horse in the event.

However, Vaughan has not picked any team from Asia. Especially, India and Pakistan. India made it to the semi-final of the last edition, while Pakistan was the runner-up. Both teams have some big names on their side. So it was certainly a bold prediction that Vaughan made ahead of the T20 World Cup 2024 start.
