Please, for the love of God, let’s have no more of the Vaughan saga. The latest is that he may have to give up the captaincy because there’s just too much ad hoc captaining going on, first by Flintoff and then by Strauss. In any case, this debate over whether he will ever play cricket again is beginning to get on my nerves. Even if he does play after about two years or so, for instance, what good will he do? Why doesn’t he simply retire and end the agony?
