LONDON: Former England captain Michael Vaughan is disappointed that the English team management failed to inform Liam Plunkett about his omission from the 55-member training group.

Plunkett, who helped England win the 2019 World Cup, said recently that he still believes he is one of the best fast-bowlers in the country despite not getting picked.

Plunkett, who picked up three wickets in the World Cup final against New Zealand, stated not much has changed since last year and he can still do the job for the country on international level.

"Do you know what, Phil? The most disappointing thing that I heard in that interview was that after the World Cup final, he won England a World Cup with a group of players and management, and not one person rang him up. Not one person," Vaughan said in a podcast with former left-arm spinner Phil Tufnell.

"He had to find that (news of omission) out through Twitter -- I'm sorry, that's back in your day, Phil. That doesn't happen in this era of cricket, that's a disgrace."

The pacer also revealed he would be open to play for the USA in the future. For that to happen, Plunkett will have to serve a necessary three-year residency period in the country to meet the eligibility criteria. (IANS)
