Michael Vaughan: England should try to emulate Australia
Former England captain Michael Vaughan tipped his hat to the Australian players who totally dominated England throughout the series and remarked that England need to try to to emulate Australia’s aggressive brand of cricket.
Vaughan was highly critical of England’s experienced players not stepping up when it mattered. He also handpicked the performances of all-rounder Ben Stokes and Stuart Broad.
Stating that it is a ‘line in the sand’ moment for England to change their playing tactics, Vaughan also said that England has lacked a brand of cricket to take on the best in the last two years, adding that it is now time for them to them hammer teams and drill home their advantage early in a match.
Vaughan further said that it is necessary for England to be more aggressive with the bat and with the field settings, without any excuses, adding that he believes Alastair Cook is the man to lead England into this new era and he needs to play the game in a different way.
