Former England captain Michael Vaughan has announced that “young Indian players need exposing to a wider world outside the pampering and riches of the Indian Premier League”.

He also noted that they would benefit from playing more county cricket since it would allow them to keep practising and developing their skills.

Vaughan’s comments come after India’s shambolic 3-1 loss to England.

“The Board Of Control for Cricket in India has some tough calls to make,” Vaughan wrote in his column for The Daily Telegraph. “My main recommendation is to get their players to play county cricket.

“Young Indian players need exposing to a wider world outside the pampering and riches of the Indian Premier League. They need to learn how to bat and bowl in our conditions.¬†All the greats of the past 30 years had spells in county cricket. It would do their development a great deal of good to come here.”
