“First is Kyle Jamieson as he’s had a magnificent start to his Test career. Next is Rishabh Pant as he’s the star of the world game. He has been incredible over the last few months, especially against Australia and England. Next, I’ll go with BJ Watling in his swansong as he’s been a fantastic servant for New Zealand cricket,” Vaughan told CricTracker.

Talking about ‘The Hundred’ which the former England captain thinks to be a massive success said, “The Hundred had a lot of criticism. I love T20 cricket; great razzmatazz, but it goes on for too long; there’s time-outs; there’s too much talking in between balls and it goes on forever. The Hundred is going to be the next big thing in world cricket.” Also Read – WTC Final | Virat Kohli Will Get Runs With a Bit of Patience: Kapil Dev Gives Suggestion to Indian Captain
