Michael Vaughan: I don’t want England’s top job – yet

Posted on 06/02/2014 in Cricket

Michael Vaughan has ruled himself out of the running for the vacant position of England team director.

The former England captain, who memorably led his country to Ashes glory for the first time in two decades in 2005, had been touted as a possible replacement for outgoing coach Andy Flower.

However, Vaughan, who retired in 2009, said he wouldn't like the top job although he would be interested in being part of England's coaching set-up.

He told BBC 5 Live: "I'm only pretty young and you just never know where life is going to take you but at this stage I would really think that it is not the right time for me to be the coach of the England team."

Vaughan's former spinner Ashley Giles – currently the limited overs coach – is the favourite to get the nod to replace Flower, although he has only managed to win one of his last six matches.

Can English cricket sort itself out before the ODIs in the West Indies? How will the turmoil affect the World T20?
