New Delhi: Former England captain on Sunday said fans could bank on young batsman Joe Root as the future of country's cricket team.
Vaughan's comments came after Root scored a century against Sri Lanka as England posted a big score, which was eventually chased down rather easily by the Lankan batsmen.
So far in the World Cup, England have been comprehensively beaten by all the Test playing nations in their Pool, with their only win coming against Scotland.
Vaughan took to social micro-blogging site Twitter to express his sentiments.
For all the understandable Negativity around England @joeroot05 is a character and has the attitude all fans can bank on for the future...

Despite the gloom surrounding English cricket, Vaughan felt that Root had the character and attitude that was necessary to take England cricket forward.
