London, July 1 (ANI): Former England captain Michael Vaughan said that he was convinced that it was time to quit cricket when his three-year-old son, Archie, uprooted his off-stump during a backyard match.
"Two weeks ago, my little lad Archie bowled a ball that hit a weed and knocked my off stump out of the ground. If a three-year-old is bowling me out, it's time to move over," The Sun quoted Vaughan, as saying.
The incident made him realize that he had no chance of playing for England again, and the daily grind of county cricket had little appeal for him.
"I always say that senior players have to be the most enthusiastic and I was starting to feel in the Yorkshire dressing room that I wasn't passing on that enthusiasm to the younger players," Vaughan said.
"I knew I had to move over and give those younger players the opportunity I had when I was 19 and 20. I'd like to be remembered as someone that gave his all and was, hopefully, a nice player to watch," The Sun quoted him, as adding. (ANI)
