“I won’t quit” says Vaughan

England captain Michael Vaughan has said he will not quit following England’s heavy loss against South Africa which has ruled them out of any chance of making the World Cup semi-finals.

England have now failed to reach the semi-final stage in the past four World Cup’s and continue their slide in one-day cricket.

Vaughan had the following to say in the post-match press conference “I won’t be retiring from one-day cricket. I am not stupid. I firmly believed we would do a lot better than we have. To get knocked out of the World Cup in the circumstances that we have is not good enough for the talent in that dressing room.”

Vaughan went onto comment on his own batting form during the World Cup where he had a highest score of only 45 for a total of 130 runs from eight matches at an average of 16.25.

“My batting form has not been good at all in one-day cricket. I’m a very honest guy that says my position in the team is hugely in doubt because of my batting. But I still believe I am a very good captain so people will have to sit down and discuss my position.”

England now prepare for a home-series against the West Indies starting in late May.
