Paul Downton lost his job as the director and Vaughan felt that he could have a huge influence on the team if he was given the new role. To add to this, the executive chief of ECB Tom Harrison wants Vaughan to take the role as he wants the new director to focus only on the sport and no on administration.
Vaughan is only a part of the huge group of ex-cricketers who are nominated for this job but if selected, he would have to leave his job as a pundit in the media. Vaughan came out in public to say that it was time for the England administration to think about what is important for the team and how to take England cricket forward on the right lines.
Vaughan admitted that it has been six years that he has thought about a role this big and added that there are many veterans who are ready to help England cricket and are waiting to know their role in the development of the sport in the nation.
With the debacle of the country in the World Cup, the places in the administration have come under huge scrutiny and all eyes are on the selectors who are to announce a team to the series in the Caribbean.
