Former English captain Michael Vaughan recently took to his official Twitter handle to express his opinion about the current situation of South Africa cricket. He added that the current scheme of things is a major upset for the game. He highlighted that South Africa should take care of the values of the team and must not let their team lose the sheen.
To solve this problem once and for all, Vaughan has urged Cricket South Africa (CSA) to put Graeme Smith in charge at the governing body for proper working and team management. After calling South Africa a great sporting team, former England skipper also highlighted a perfect example by citing the national rugby team’s world cup title glory this year.
This isn’t the first time that Michael Vaughan backed his ex-counterpart for a position in Cricket South Africa. Previously, after Steve Smith withdrew himself from the role of the Director of Cricket of CSA, the former England player launched a scathing attack on Cricket South Africa (CSA), adding that it was a shame that the board couldn’t appoint Graeme Smith to fix the leaks.
“What’s happening to South Africa cricket is a real worry for the game .. A great sporting nation .. Look what the Rugby team have just won .. Please don’t let the Cricket team fade away .. needs strong governance now .. @GraemeSmith49 must be put in charge ..,” Michael Vaughan tweeted on the micro-blogging platform.
Last month, former South Africa skipper Graeme Smith added that after he had interviewed for the CSA Director of Cricket position, he felt it was really important to confirm that he has unfortunately withdrawn his interest for the role. However, Smith mentioned that he would have loved to take up the role and also revealed what made him back out.
He added that he has not perfected the kind of confidence that he would be given the level of freedom and assistance to make the required changes. He then concluded by adding that he will still continue to support the teams and give his words of wisdom to the players whenever possible.
