    Vaughan To Do It His Way
Michael Vaughan will do the England captaincy his way, but with a little help from his friends.

Vaughan, thrust into the job without time to catch his breath let alone his thoughts, believes succeeding Nasser Hussain will be easier thanks to his predecessor still being in the England dressing room.
"Nasser did a fantastic job for England and Iím pleased that heís still around for when I need advice," said Vaughan, who also plans to talk to former England skipper Michael Atherton, another who led his country from the opening batsmenís position.
Vaughan told Channel 4ís Mark Nicholas that he was eating a bacon sandwich when Hussain told him he was quitting the job. "I could see he was tired and had had enough," said the Yorkshire player. "I was just delighted to be offered the job and Iíll look forward to the challenge".
Vaughan said he is not so much bothered what his teammates get up to off the pitch as long as they are totally committed on it. "I want everybody concentrated on putting England back where they belong in the cricket world.
"I have been lucky to play under some very good captains and I will take a bit of each of them out there with me, but I will still do it my way.
"Iíll be drawing on all the experience around me, but Iíll also be asking the young ones for their ideas. I want everybody to be a part of the think tank out in the middle".
