“But would I want to be the head coach: probably not”

Former England captain Michael Vaughan has dismissed rumours and speculation about becoming the national team’s next head coach.

 The position became vacant when Andy Flower resigned at the end of England’s disastrous tour of Australia, during which they lost 12 matches and only won one.

“I think there are many ex-players who would love an involvement,” Vaughan said. “There are many of us who watched in Australia and care passionately about the team, care passionately about what the game of cricket needs and requires and the entertainment value that we would hope that all teams around the world would bring.

“Of course if I get a call, and someone says to me ‘would you like some involvement in trying to help English cricket move forward?.’ Absolutely. But would I want to be the head coach: probably not.”

When asked if he would consider applying for the role in the future, Vaughan said: “I don’t think you can ever rule that out. 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.”
