Vaughan unhappy with England analyst sending coded information to Morgan
England completed yet another T20I series win by winning the third T20I against South Africa by nine wickets. With this series win, England completed their eight series win in a row in the shorter version of the game.
Meanwhile, England skipper Eoin Morgan has stuck into controversy following the third game. England analyst Nathan Leamon was seen sending some coded information to the England skipper Eoin Morgan, who was on the field. Nathan Leamon signaled a combination of a single letter and a single letter from the dressing room balcony. This new approach raised questions among people around the game.
Former England skipper Michael Vaughan was also not happy with this approach from his national team. “Signals sent from an analyst on a balcony to the captain on the pitch !!!! The world has officially gone nuts,” Vaughan tweeted on this incident.

Talking about this at the end of the match, Jos Buttler said this as an experiment to let the captain know about the match-ups in the middle. England team management is calling this experiment as ‘live informational resource’.
“It’s a little help, a suggestion, and what match-ups are going on. Eoin and Nathan work closely on analysis. It’s just a little bit of an experiment. Eoin is one of the best captains in the world, a fantastic, instinctive captain, and there’s a nice balance going on,” Buttler said on this.
It is said that England communicated with the match officials and anti-corruption officials. England team’s spokesperson communicated to the media that this approach will not breach any code of conduct of the game.
