Michael Vaughan: James Vince over Nick Compton for England

07-May-2016 / 10:57 am
Kerala Updates: England should pick James Vince to bat at number three in the first Test against Sri Lanka, according to former captain Michael Vaughan. Nick Compton was recalled for the series in South Africa, averaging 30.6 in eight innings as England won 2-1. Hampshire captain Vince, 25, has played one one-day international and four Twenty20s for England. "You have to try to move the team on with better players and I think Vince is the better player," said Vaughan. Right-hander Vince has a first-class average of 41 and Vaughan told BBC Sport: "He's played well for Hampshire for many years. "He's got the right style of game that might even go to another level when he plays Test cricket. "I don't think he's in the league of Joe Root yet, but he's a similar kind of player." Middlesex's Compton made 85 in his first international innings for two and a half years to help England beat South Africa in the first Test in Durban. He followed that with scores of 49 and 45 but after that did not pass 26 in five attempts. "He played pretty well in Durban, but I don't think he did enough," said Vaughan, who played 82 Tests for England. "He hasn't set the world alight for Middlesex so far this season. "I watched him in the final Test against South Africa at Centurion and he didn't look right." Compton has a high score of 44 in five first-class innings this season.
