Ex-England captain Michael Vaughan was disappointed with the former captain’s performance in the game. He said to Cricbuzz, “I look at Virat in particular. I knew he had a little bit of a rest at the end of the IPL. But he just looks to me like he needs a sabbatical. He looks like he needs three months away from cricket. Go and sit on a bench. Go and do what you can with your family because of a career of 20 years, which he probably will end up getting because he’s such a good player. To have a three month break, is it going to affect him? No. Will it help him? Yes.”

Vaughan also commented on the schedule of the England series. He was disappointed how the teams are playing all-format games in the span of a couple of days. “I just look at the schedule for India and England. It’s ridiculous. We’ll see more and more of this over the next few years. It’s just impossible that all-format players will be able to play all three formats. The management of all these teams are going to have to be very clever in terms of giving them a breather.”
