Former England captain Michael Vaughan insisted that host should keep  Zak Crawley and axe Joe Denly when regular captain Joe Root returns for the second test against the West Indies.

Denly only scored 18 and 29 in the first test against the West Indies and has now gone without a fifty in his last eight innings.

‘’It’s not even a conversation  “You could argue that Denly was very lucky to have played 15 Test matches. There are a lot of players who have played only eight tests and got hundreds. Vaughan, who captained England in 51 tests, told BBC Sport

“He has missed his chance and they have to stick with Crawley. I’m sorry for Denly - he’s just not good enough.”

“England have a decision to make on Denly. Crawley surely has to stay in the side,” added Vaughan

Crawley refused to be drawn into speculation on the top order for the second test in Old Trafford from Thursday.

“That’s not my place to say,” the 22-year-old said. My job is to score runs, and that is what I will try to continue to do as long as I get a chance.

“It is for the powers that be to decide,” Crawley said.
