English fast bowler Stuart Broad has accused former England skipper Michael Vaughan of being ‘disrespectful’ for advising that fans who bought tickets should receive some money back. Vaughan had said that fans who’ve bough tickets for the forthcoming ODI series against Australia deserve a refund as England has left most of the Ashes cricketers out of the team.
Skipper Alastair Cook, Ian Bell, James Anderson and Graeme Swann, who all included in the recent 3-0 Ashes series win over the visitors, were all left out of the teams in the one-dayer against Ireland and the five-match ODI campaign against Australia. As per Stuff.co.nz, however, Broad has defended the step and felt that Vaughan’s comments are disrespectful to the team that is going to go out on the field as it has cricketers who’ve performed throughout the county season to get an opportunity at the international level.
Stuart Broad, who’ll skipper England`s T20 team against Australia in Southampton on Thursday, also said that those cricketers wouldn’t be in the team if they’re not good enough to play, adding that the ODI team would be very committed to defeating Australia.
