Michael Vaughan: What he said, really meant and definitely did not

'Calling The Shots' By Michael Vaughan

What he said:

"I reckon you might [have had to] bat No.8 in this Indian team."

Michael Vaughan is convinced that Phil Tufnell could bat as high as No.8 in the current Indian Test team. Tufnell has a Test average of 5.10 and a highest score of 22.

What he really meant:

“It doesn’t matter what order the Indian tailenders turn up in, the end result would be the same.It might be a better idea to reverse the batting line-up. The bottom five might just last 20 overs with the new ball.”

What he definitely didn’t:

“I wonder why Dhoni doesn’t do a Bedi and declare after the fall of the sixth wicket.”
