Michael Vaughan split captaincy will work

Vaughan said that it was his decision to stand down as England one-day captain while the team were at the World Cup in the West Indies.

Michael Vaughan split captaincy will work Michael Vaughan formally announced he was giving up the leadership of the one-day side on Monday although he said he still wanted to play both forms of the game. Vaughan insisted last night that he is the right man to make England's split captaincy work as he embarked on a month-long return to the county ranks with Yorkshire. but admitted that having two skippers could be "the end of MV".

 It was only last month when Vaughan spoke out against a split captaincy.

 After England had completed a 3-0 series victory over West Indies with a seven-wicket win in the fourth Test, Michael Vaughan was quoted: "I know I said the split captaincy wouldn't work but if it's going to work it will do with someone like me. I'm pretty chilled, I captain in a different manner to a lot of people and I'm very committed to continuing as the Test captain as long as the team want me. I don't have any worries about the decision I've made. I'm very confident it can work with me and the new captain but if he comes in and does a magnificent job, it's the end of MV."

 Vaughan said he did not expect to be named on Friday in the squad for the one-day matches against West Indies. As he explained, a new captain would find it very difficult captaining Vaughan a week after he'd captained him in a Test.

 England batsman Paul Collingwood believes having separate Test and one-day captains could work. Kevin Pietersen, Andrew Strauss and Alastair Cook have also been touted as possible captains but it is widely believed that Collingwood's close friendship with Vaughan could swing the decision his way.
