Alastair Cook seems to be winning over some of his staunchest critics. The beleaguered England captain overturned months of woeful form with the bat and led his side to its first win in as many as 10 Tests at Southampton. Former skipper Michael Vaughan, who was one of many voices calling for Cook to step down or take a break from cricket, has admitted he made an error in judgement.

"No question, I was wrong. Two and a half weeks ago, I said a break would've done him good," Vaughan said on BBC Radio 5 live's the Tuffers and Vaughan Cricket Show. (Also read: The pride of wearing India cap has gone, laments Gavaskar)

Vaughan went on to praise the England and Wales Cricket Board for sticking by Cook. "The England and Wales Cricket Board stood by him, he was strong and said: 'I'm the man to carry this young team forward.'" (Sunil Gavaskar feels India gifted wickets to Moeen Ali)
