Former England cricket captain Michael Vaughan dropped for BBC Ashes coverage over involvement in Yorkshire crisis – Latest Cricket News

Former England cricket captain Michael Vaughan was removed from its commentary panel by the BBC on Wednesday. This action has been taken against Vaughan for making racist remarks. Vaughan was part of the commentary panel for next month’s Ashes series between Australia and England. But now he will not be able to do commentary in this series. Michael Vaughan is alleged to have made racist remarks on former Yorkshire captain Azim Rafiq during a match in 2009.

Vaughan has called the allegations against himself baseless and said that attempts are being made to “falsely malign” his reputation. This is the worst thing that I have experienced in life. The BBC said that Michael Vaughan is involved in a different story in cricket. Hence, it is currently not the right time for him to join for coverage of the Ashes series against Australia. It is worth noting that former Pakistan fast bowler Naved Ul Hasan Rana had also told that he had heard Michael Vaughan making racial remarks.

Michael Vaughan is one of the most successful captains of England. In 2004, under his captaincy, England won the Ashes series after 18 years. Vaughan scored 5719 runs in 82 Test matches at an average of 41.44. The England and Wales Cricket Board has suspended Yorkshire from hosting international matches after racial remarks surfaced. At the same time, sponsors associated with Yorkshire are also ending their deal with them.
