Michael Vaughan to Announce International Retirement

Former English Captain Michael Vaughan is going to announce his retirement from international cricket tomorrow (30 June 2009). The 2005 Ashes winning English captain has not been in good fom recently since stepping down as England captain following the defeat to South Africa in the home test series last year. Since then, he has also been out of England test squad as well.

Moreover, Michael Vaughan has also failed to perform well in the ongoing domestic season in England, and thus, has been ruled out of the England squad for the upcoming Ashes 2009. This is perhaps what has prompted him to retire from cricket. Now, it seems that it is just matter of time Vaughan retires from cricket.

Former English opener Marcus Trescothik has said that Vaughan will be sorely missed by English team in the upcoming Ashes series because he could have been very important for England with his vast experience. He also said that he had some good memories while playing together for England.

Well, there is no doubt, Michael Vaughan has not been at his best at this moment, but if England wants to do something better than what they did in Australia in 2007, then they need an experienced batsman in the middle order. In fact, English looked pretty much fragile over the last few months. That is why, I think, Vaughan could have played a big role behind England. Let us see if England can replicate their 2005 success in the upcoming Ashes series without Michael Vaughan.
