Former England captain Michael Vaughan criticized the English team management for saying that it was outrageous that pacer Liam Plunkett was informed of his exit from social media. Plunkett (35) has not played for the team since England's title win in the World Cup last year. After the Corona virus subsided, the list was released to start training of 55 players last week, in which their name was missing.
Vaughn told former spinner Phil Tuffnell on the podcast, 'Phil, do you know? The most disappointing thing I heard in that interview was that not a single person called him after England's World Cup final title. '
He said, “He came to know about his exit via Twitter. This used to happen before, but in this era of cricket it does not happen. It is an insult. ”Plunkett's wife is American and said that if there is a chance in America, he is ready to play there.
Plunkett said on a Radio 5 Live, “It would be nice to get involved in some kind of cricket there.” If my children were American, it would be good to tell them that I played for England and America. However, he would have to stay there for a period of three years to play for America.
