Vaughn 'Lingerer of the Year'
Courtesy Cricket 365:
Lingerer of the Year
There's only been one - Michael Vaughan has been slinking around Oz all series giving his two-pence and saying that yes, he would be returning very soon, only for Dunc Fletcher to deny the rumours. Perhaps the best press conference he has had was last week when he said that no, his presence Down Under was not disturbing to the side. He then went on to say that Freddie's captaincy was not to blame for England's woes but that he would jump at the chance to reclaim the responsibility.
Ha! So true. What does this man think he's doing? It's so disruptive, disrespectful, etc. If I was Flintoff, in fact, if I was an English supporter full stop, I'd be seriously peeved at the way Vaughn has hung around like some sort of bad smell.
And this theory that he's going to return to be the saviour of England, especially in the one-dayers, where he has never been anything but completely under-whelming, it just Ďaint going to happen. His time as a top class batsman has passed. I think it's a worry and very old England that they appear to be picking a man on captaincy alone. He should have to prove he's fit and firing first.
