Is Scrum model is applicable for virtual Team? if so how daily scrum,sprint review and sprint retrospective happen? by using conferences?

Please comment on this.

Whatever a "virtual team" means in your situation, you can expect that it will demonstrate virtual teamwork. By definition it won't be real teamwork, otherwise it would be a real team.

What do you think the consequences of that might be? Is the team still expected to produce real increments of real value?

Thanks for the reply...By using virtual teams in Scrum(not co-located) may reduce product increment delivery significantly.

due to communication with long distance and due to communication blockers etc.

Since Scrum team is Self-Organised and Cross-Functional , it should support i guess...

as i have not seen working  as virtual teams in scrum.

So the question is does SCRUM supports virtual teams working style?

Scrum is a framework. It can be implemented poorly or well. By correctly pointing out that non co-location "may reduce product increment delivery significantly", I think you've answered your own question about the degree to which it is supported.
