Vaughan can have his cake and eat it
Michael Vaughan has joined the Test Match Special and will make his first regular appearances during England’s tour of South Africa which starts in November. He has done the occasional summarising stint this summer, but will now be part of the main team.
Vaughan had been widely expected to move into broadcasting, but the television route taken by the likes of Nasser Hussain and Mike Atherton looked the likely route. However, he has opted for radio and will be one of the expert summarisers that TMS uses alongside their commentators.
According to Adam Mountford, the TMS producer, Vaughan has already shown a liking for the famous cakes that get delivered to the commentary box. One of the bonuses of not playing any more.
