It was most surely his biggest achievement and he thoroughly deserved the praise heaped upon him at the time. Vaughan had presently relinquished the Captaincy on the At some point international aspect to Paul Collingwood, simply because frankly, he was not slicing it as a batsman any more and it may be mentioned that it’s for the same cause that he has stood down because the Take a look at Captain. He has averaged just eight runs With all the bat towards the South Africans over the summer season, which can go a way to explaining the decision to stand down.
