Former England captain Michael Vaughan has said that James Anderson should keep sledging India. He also suggested that Anderson should not give India a chance to report him again. 

Vaughan said, “At Old Trafford I would say to Jimmy carry on but don’t give India an excuse to report him again. He is winning England the series and the political tension between the teams is high so he is vulnerable if he blows his top again and gets involved in a needless spat. When you hear comments like Michael Clarke‘s to James Anderson in Brisbane last year or Jimmy calling MS Dhoni a “fat c—” then the umpires have to step in. Jimmy will know he was wrong and he will not want his name linked with those kind of words. He has young children and he will not want them reading those comments in years to come.”

He added, “Dhoni will be reminded his technique is all over the place when facing Jimmy. England have Shikhar Dhawan on toast and as soon as he comes in, the slip cordon will be reminding him of his technical problems. Fast bowlers use this as a mechanism for getting up for the challenge and the fight and as long as it does not become personal abuse, I have no problem with it”
