Former England captain Michael Vaughan Tuesday retired from all forms of cricket bringing down the curtains on an international career spanning over 11 years. The 34-year-old batsman is England's most successful captain of all time, with 26 Test wins from 51 matches in charge.
He scored 5,719 runs in 82 Test matches, including three centuries on the 2002/03 tour of Australia, where he became the first visiting batsman for 32 years to score more than 600 runs in a series.
His career has been ruined in recent years by a knee injury and speculation about the 34-year-old's future intensified after Vaughan failed to win a place in England's squad for the Ashes series against Australia which starts next week in Cardiff.
He will be missed by everyone connected with the team and we wish him every success in his future career.
