England are not arrogant - Vaughan

Carlyle Laurie

Former England captain Michael Vaughan, writing in the Daily Telegraph, says that Shane Warne’s assertion that the current England team is confident and arrogant is incorrect, as England are very wary of Australia in the ODI series which begins today.

Warney is a mate and a great cricketer but it is funny to hear him call us confident and arrogant. Pot and kettle come to mind. Also, I have not heard anyone, former England player or current, predict a 5-0 win, like a certain GD McGrath used to do. This is because England know this Australia side will test them to the limits. I do not take them lightly either now that Michael Clarke and Mickey Arthur are in charge. They will produce good, well-drilled teams and from what I am hearing they have that in-your-face confidence that came naturally to good Aussie teams of the past.
