Vaughan says 'good show' from England's senior players critical for Ashes success

Sydney, Dec 3 : Former England captain Michael Vaughan has said that the performance of senior players like Matt Prior, Alastair Cook and coach Andy Flower, has been out of sorts during the tour.

According to the Sydney Morning Herald, Vaughan pointed out that these players had the chance to be able to sail into new careers and be feted as great England cricketers because they won three Ashes series, a Twenty20 World Cup and a Test series in India.

Now, though, those senior players have to ask if they are up for the fight on this trip or are they just going to roll over and let Australia win, Vaughan said.

Vaughan added that Swann, Prior and Anderson are the spine of the team but they did not deliver in Brisbane and looked in that match as if they had lost a bit of edge.
