In his column in ‘The Telegraph,’ he wrote, ‘The opening pair of Rory Burns and Dominic Sibley failed. In such a situation, the youngster Haseeb Hamid should now be allowed to open the team. According to Wan, Hamid was unable to score big in both innings of the Lord’s Test, but he did well. I mean Hamid should open with Rory Burns in the third game at Herringley. In the first innings of the Lord’s, Mohammad Siraj was dismissed by Hamid for the first ball, scoring 9 off 45 balls in the second innings. Ishant Sharma was dismissed in the second innings.

Vaughan added, ‘It would be very strange if England went into the third Test with Burns and Sibley.’ Von David Malan suggested his name to bat in the third. Star All-rounder Ben Stokes has asked for a replacement player. He said, ‘Without Stokes, the team looks very weak. The team must find confidence and trust in the players. They should expect someone to come forward and do something, as Stokes did two years ago.
Michael Vaughan’s Third Test Team: Rory Burns, Haseeb Hamid, David Malan, Joe Root, Johnny Bairstow, Moeen Ali, Jose Butler, Ollie Robinson, Sam Curran, James Anderson, Mark Wood.
