Place under threat: Michael Vaughan feels Stuart Broad (l) should be dropped

Former England captain Michael Vaughan would advocate dropping Stuart Broad in response to the shock nine-wicket defeat to Pakistan in the first Test.

England travel to Headingley for this week’s decider with plenty to ponder after being outclassed at Lord’s and Vaughan believes a radical change may be in order.

While Mark Wood’s position appears the most vulnerable if England were to make a bowling change and bring in Chris Woakes, Vaughan argued it should be Broad – who has taken 411 Test wickets – to make way.

He told the Tuffers and Vaughan cricket Show on BBC Radio 5 live: “If England want to play Chris Woakes on Friday, I’d make the tough call that Broad doesn’t play.

“Teams need a shake-up. I don’t want England to go to Headingley on Friday and Mark Wood to be the one left out. It’s easy to bring in Chris Woakes for Wood. But for me, Wood plays. What’s he done wrong?

“England haven’t been winning for a long time. They just keep going with the same old every single week. This is just a think tank to drop Broad or James Anderson, and I hope people within the team and the management think, ‘could it make a just a little difference?’ You never know.”
