Even as the England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) remain adamant about being unable to shift their fixtures for the England domestic cricket for the Champions League Twenty20, the former England captain is essentially telling England to get off the high horse.
Michael Vaughan has slammed the ECB’s attitude for being rigid and arrogant and not understanding the way of the world. By being unaccommodating, Vaughan feels that the ECB does not get the huge business proposition that England and the CL T20 represent for England.
He feels that while the rest of the world is embracing India and its business enterprise in the field of cricket, England is isolating itself from the prosperity under the false notion of trying to prevent India from becoming a powerhouse.
Vaughan also feels that there is a huge learning potential that is being denied in the stand off. He referred to the England county cricketers whose only hope of making money in the millions would be through tournaments such as the Champions League Twenty20. He also felt that the tournament would provide an opportunity for the cricketers to play and learn alongside some of the best in the game and bring that knowledge to enhance the domestic game in England.
Vaughan stated it was time England accept that India is the hub of cricket, and the ruler of the cricket market and aligning with India would only benefit other cricketers and cricket boards.
