In 2005, Michael Vaughan became the first captain of England’s cricket team to win the coveted Ashes series against Australia since Mike Gatting in 1986-87.

In his five-year spell as skipper of the national team, Vaughan developed a reputation as an astute on-field tactician as well as a talented batsman.
Indeed his batting proficiency saw him climb briefly to the top of the Test batting rankings during the 2002-2003 season.
Earlier this year, Manchester-born Vaughan decided to retire from the game altogether after a combination of injury and loss of form prevented him from making his Ashes swansong against the touring Australians.
But the record books will show he was England's most successful Test captain of all time with 26 wins from 51 matches.
Michael will be appearing on the show later this week as our “Connector of the day,” and will talk about his career, the current state of the game, and moves to expand its global profile beyond the Commonwealth countries that current dominate the Test scene.
