Dominic Sibley is facing criticism despite scoring a century in the second Test against the Windies Sibley has been accused of playing too slow but former captain Michael Vaughan says it is talent in the player.
He is doing what England needs right now. Let us know that Sibley, 24, scored a 312-ball century in the second Test match against the West Indies.
It was the slowest century in Test cricket since November 2014. Then Tamim Iqbal of Bangladesh had scored a century in 312 balls against Zimbabwe.
Vaughn said, “Sibley played 372 balls in his 120-run innings. England is a fun team. His fans criticize him in such a format as he plays a very fast game. But now many people on social media were criticizing how Dominic Sibley played. Sibley is doing just right for the England team right now. This is exactly what England needed for a long time. Someone who just wants to stay, value his wicket and bat.”
Vaughan said, “We give credit to Ben Stokes, Jos Butler, Ollie Pope and other flamboyant players. Similarly, Dominic Sibley also deserves respect. I don’t think they should change it. I don’t think much went wrong with that. It could also be that he kept his game on the offside so that he brought the bowlers under pressure and set up and scored runs.”
