Strauss will be an outstanding England skipper: Vaughan

Strauss will be an outstanding England skipper: VaughanLondon, Apr. 22 : Former England cricket captain Michael Vaughan is convinced that current incumbent Andrew Strauss will become an outstanding England captain, but has warned him not to read too much into or about Ashes fever.

"Andrew Strauss will be a great captain, with stability, consistency and maturity," The Sun quoted Vaughan, as saying.

He also said that people should not expect England to beat the Australians this summer as they did under him in 2005.

"You must be careful because Andy Flower has only just come in as full-time coach and The Ashes are less than three months away," Vaughan said.

Vaughan appears to be quite serious about making a comeback to the national squad, if his Yorkshire team mate and former England fast bowler Mathew Hoggard is to be believed.

Vaughan, 34, has not played Test cricket since giving up the captaincy last August but is desperate to play in The Ashes.

"He has been batting well in the nets. A lot of people will be focusing on Michael. It is going to be a big year for him," The Sun quoted Hoggard, as saying. (ANI)
