Vaughan's wait for comeback prolonged
London, May 9 (UNI) Rejecting reports that Michael Vaughan was set to get out of the injury layoff this week, Yorkshire director of cricket David Byas said the England captain would not be rushed to play.
Vaughan has not played since being forced home from the tour of India in February by a persistent knee problem.
According to media reports Vaughan, who has since resumed training with Yorkshire, would feature in the Liverpool Victoria County Championship clash with Kent at Canterbury.
''Michael won't be playing. There has been talk of him coming back this week but that's absolute eye-wash... Quite when he's going to be back, I'm not sure - I can only say he's making progress,'' Byas was quoted as saying by the ecb.co.uk.
The England captain has not played since being forced home from the tour of India in February by a persistent knee problem and Byas insisted that Vaughan will not be compelled to rush back into action.
''If he comes back sooner than he should then it would a waste of time,'' Byas said adding, ''He's very keen to come back, but come back when he's ready.'' Byas was all praises for the English captain and backed his return to the international arena as the England captain saying, ''He's worked very hard to get where he is - he's the captain of England - and he's a mature, professional cricketer, so he's not going to throw that away.''
