FACTFILE
Michael Vaughan
Born: 29/10/1974
Right hand batsman; right arm off-spin bowler
Test debut: 25/11/99 v South Africa, Johannesburg
ODI debut: 23/03/01 v Sri Lanka, Dambulla
After leading England to their first Ashes series win since 1987, Vaughan's place in history is assured.

But he is determined there will be no resting on any laurels and believes "massive challenges" await his players in Pakistan and India.

"We have played good cricket for two years, not just this summer, but there will be blips along the way.

"It is how you cope with the odd failure which is the most important thing," Vaughan commented.

FORM GUIDE

  • Vaughan has been unable to regain the form he showed in 2002-03 when he became the world's top ranked batsman, but scored over 300 runs in the summer series against Australia and hit his 15th Test century.

  • His only previous Test experience against Pakistan came in two matches on home soil in 2001 when he produced scores of 32, 120 and 14 in a series which ended in a 1-1 draw.

  • Vaughan has taken to captaincy like a duck to water with 19 wins from 31 games prior to this tour, and only five defeats. England have won seven series with Vaughan in charge - with a 1-0 defeat in Sri Lanka in 2003 the sole blemish on his record.
