@MichaelVaughan I'm looking forward to seeing them in Jo'Burg. Flying out tomorrow and very excited ( at the age of nearly 80!)Jane McCulloch @janemccwriter • 21 Jan 09:34 GMT
@MichaelVaughan Michael he's not good enough to get in our test side, there's so much better back home, Hain, Northeast, Abell, Bracey to name a few.Jacob Wadsworth @JacobWadsworth6 • 21 Jan 07:59 GMT
@BackOnYourTL @JayDeshpande13 @shaunroberts131 @5liveSport @philtufnell @MichaelVaughan @markchapman @nassercricket First test he ran across the field of play to interact with Root as he walking off. He’s a great bowler, but he needs to learn how to keep his aggression under control.Ben O'Hare @manxben4 • 21 Jan 07:43 GMT
@MichaelVaughan It could be considered he was on the edge of a ban, 1 demerit point away, maybe take the ban to clear the slate for the future? Was it tactical?Chris @muller148 • 21 Jan 07:37 GMT
@MichaelVaughan What would have happened if one of those batsmen had laid the nut on himandy owen @fozkipeye • 21 Jan 04:41 GMT
@BackOnYourTL @manxben4 @shaunroberts131 @5liveSport @philtufnell @MichaelVaughan @markchapman @nassercricket I did and it was wrong of him. But he wasn’t even swearing or staring down Root this time. Root didn’t even get provoked by Rabada.Jay Deshpande @JayDeshpande13 • 21 Jan 03:54 GMT
@BackOnYourTL @manxben4 @shaunroberts131 @5liveSport @philtufnell @MichaelVaughan @markchapman @nassercricket One more question. Would you have said that Jimmy Anderson or Broad would deserve punishment if they gave a huge send off?Jay Deshpande @JayDeshpande13 • 21 Jan 03:44 GMT
@MichaelVaughan I have the utmost respect for you as a player, as a captain & as a commentator, however, I do not agree. He was in the face not celebrating with his team mates. I accept who the wicket was but that is no excuse. Hopefully he will learn & come back a better bowler for it.SeaninRoundhay @seaninroundhay • 20 Jan 22:47 GMT
@MattNewling @FindlaytBrown @MichaelVaughan Yes...if Sibley can develop into an obdurate Opener; Root fulfils his talent; Pope can emulate the success of Labuschagne; Archer/Wood/Anderson stay fit & England get over their resentment of the Kookaburra ball.Adu Nathan @anathan8635 • 20 Jan 20:47 GMT
@MichaelVaughan Who was responsible for picking Pope and Bess? That’s where the credit should go.Peter CG Cooper @PeterCGCooper1 • 20 Jan 20:37 GMT
@MichaelVaughan Seems like it’s coming together-Plus Burns to come back in at some point. Archer back soon. Keep it going lads!!!Craig Oddie @CraigOddie • 20 Jan 20:36 GMT
And @YorkshireCCC couldn’t be prouder of the @englandcricket captain who joins the illustrious ranks of ‘all-round captain’ - first captain-batsman- spin bowler since...@RayIllingworth?
Or did @MichaelVaughan count? #SAvENG #bbccricket https://t.co/LrglkVIE2T
@MichaelVaughan Virat is a fine player but more importantly, he possesses a magnificent beard.Splash @SplashFurniture • 20 Jan 08:45 GMT
@MichaelVaughan Even Root is a better all round cricketer than Smith!Jacob Wadsworth @JacobWadsworth6 • 20 Jan 08:27 GMT
@MichaelVaughan @TelegraphSport You're such a snowflake Michael. Can't believe you think this means what you think it means. Rabada's actions were intimidatory and he has more than enough previous. The ban was coming. Even Boucher said in interview that KG has anger problems.Henry Vinson @infinitysplittr • 19 Jan 17:47 GMT
@MichaelVaughan Got to, with this pitch acting like it is, would be foolish not to enforce the follow on.Lucy @LucyQuinn2011 • 19 Jan 08:18 GMT

@MarkWhelan14 @MichaelVaughan A friend’s son was selected for his county’s Colt team. After a few months he left as he was bullied by the other kids for being at a state school.
He’s now a footballer.
@BarmiesNiagara @MarkWhelan14 @MichaelVaughan And doesn’t happen. There have been a fair amount of efforts to get ‘regular’ kids playing in the last few years and England’s WC success will help, but most players will continue to come from private schools. It’s all about the 10000 hours. And all about when you are born.Campsy73 @Campsy73 • 18 Jan 14:27 GMT
@Campsy73 @BarmiesNiagara @MarkWhelan14 @MichaelVaughan Have you read up about how much they save and contribute to local and national economies? Also the tax ‘subsidies’ are used for scholarships or bursaries for the talented and less wealthy. FACTS!Janet Emmett @JanetEmmett • 18 Jan 12:43 GMT
@MichaelVaughan Didn't he get a ban, because he is a repeat offender with 6 demerit points before that incident?Chris @muller148 • 18 Jan 09:01 GMT
@MichaelVaughan Funny Michael but doesn’t answer the very valid question.Mac @03Mac08 • 18 Jan 08:16 GMT
@MichaelVaughan @TelegraphSport I get what you mean @MichaelVaughan but even Shaun Pollock said yesterday, this isn’t a one off, he’s got LOADS of history of this 🤷🏻♂️ surely the management need to take some responsibility, because whilst I personally don’t think he did much wrong, this isn’t the first timeJohnny Stackhouse @JohnnyStackLUFC • 18 Jan 06:11 GMT
@MichaelVaughan Totally stupid point,if you got talent it will emerge no matter where your bornGlenn Smith @GlennSm45963194 • 18 Jan 04:56 GMT
@MichaelVaughan Yet they did nothing when he celebrated the same way taking Crawleys wicket. The pitch belongs to both batter and bowler except the no go area. Mikey saying its the batters space is bang out of order because its not. Cricket gone nuts. Don't mention the rubbish pitch.Ian Coult @IanCoult2 • 18 Jan 00:36 GMT
@MichaelVaughan @benstokes38 It really won’t be long until you’ll say Sobers, Hadlee, Khan, Dev, Botham, Flintoff, Kallis & (Stokes) in the same breath! He’s totally reaching those heights right now!! 🏴Paul Dawson @pcd2406 • 17 Jan 23:05 GMT
@MichaelVaughan I actually commend Root for not reacting to what was clearly meant as provocation, acceptable behaviour or not. If Root had reacted to it I think everyone's perception of Rabadas behaviour would have been different.Chris Moore @ChrisMoore80 • 17 Jan 22:33 GMT
@MichaelVaughan I thought celebration was OTT but punishment is inappropriate.Andrew Chinn @AndyChinn1 • 17 Jan 20:40 GMT
@MichaelVaughan That’s a huge conflation. He knows better than anyone what the rules are, whether they’re right or wrong is irrelevant. If he had have done the same thing at point he would have been fine there was a clear move back towards JR. don’t give the powers that be the chance to ban you.Andrew Foster @FozzyBearDrums • 17 Jan 20:38 GMT
@robbievigar @gogreenwalls @telecricket @MichaelVaughan Not going to lie, I haven't thought into it that far. My opinion is that I wish he wasn't banned, I would rather he played as he is a fantastic bowler and it would be great for the series. But I can understand on past experiences why he HAS been banned.Richard Anderson @RichardAlasIA • 17 Jan 16:07 GMT
@MichaelVaughan @TelegraphSport @ICC shame on your rules. Batter put bandage on bowlers mouth. He is a real talent. He was working hard all day for wicket. It motivates him. Give a bowler some freedom.Shah @imLarnaca • 17 Jan 12:49 GMT
@MichaelVaughan He slammed the brakes on to scream his celebration in Root’s space, Root has to walk around him to leave the crease. It was needless and he deserves the demerit. If he’s been banned it’s because he’s failed to learn from his previousVintageWallCharts @VtgWallCharts • 17 Jan 11:41 GMT
@MichaelVaughan You are wrong on this one Michael. He went well over the top and we don't need young kids following his example.Richard Wells @RwellsWells • 17 Jan 11:39 GMT
@MichaelVaughan What next removing of shirts like footballers ? If I was Joe Root I would have nutted him.tom carlin @carlin_thomas • 17 Jan 11:06 GMT
@MichaelVaughan Get it right Michael. Listen and learn:
Screaming in front of Root,after bowling him out..that’s unnecessary!
The ICC gave him one demerit point, which means he now has four in a two-year period.
That triggers a one-Test ban!
Thought you knew about cricket 🏏 🤔
