Thursday, 29 August 2013 - 10:32


Englands Stuart Broad has called ex-skipper Michael Vaughan "disrespectful" for criticising the decision to rest several Ashes players for the one-day internationals against Australia.


Captain Alastair Cook, batsman Ian Bell, off-spinner Graeme Swann and seamers James Anderson and Broad - the Twenty20 skipper - are absentees.


Vaughan said on Twitter that England fans should be given a partial refund.


The five-match one-day series starts on 6th September at Headingley.
