Well Micheal, as Barney from How I met you mother would say.
We will endeavour to report all of MV’s innings and just how good his form is leading up to the Ashes.
In the lead up to Yorkshires’ first county match against Durham last week, Vaughan had a couple of innings that seemed to show he was in the ‘kind of form that might tempt the ECB’ to pick him for the Ashes.
Form leading up to the Durham match
29 v Lancs, pre-season one dayer.
43 v Durham, FTP one dayer, bowled through the gate.
All this ‘form’ amounted to the usual story against Durham where he scored a couple of 20s. Dismissed to Onions and Harmy, caught behind both times.
He may have been a little unlucky in the first innings but his form at best was sketchy. Uncertainty outside the off stump was enough for Onions to send the former English captain back in the 2nd dig.
40 odd runs is hardly going to set the world on fire, even for the weird selection policies adopted by the ECB.
Vaughans desire to be picked for the WI series test squad was a far fetched dream. This is pretty unlikely to happen now, even with the kind of romantic relationship he has with the ECB and the English Media, who make you feel like he is only a ‘classy cover drive’ laden 40 odd from being back in the English set up.
Sorry MV, but on current form you shouldn’t be anywhere near the ‘The England’.
Vaughans next outing should be on Sunday v Sussex. All the best Micheal.
“Form is temporary, class is…”
