Vaughan takes it slowly

England captain Michael Vaughan will take a slow and steady approach to his international comeback despite making a successful return for Yorkshire.

Having heeded the lessons from his ill-fated comeback during the tour of India, Vaughan recognises he still has hurdles to overcome before again playing for England.

However, he has not ruled out a return for next month's one-dayers against Sri Lanka.

"I'll try to play all the games I can for Yorkshire and see how it reacts to some four-day cricket," Vaughan told BBC Sport.

"I wouldn't rule out playing against Sri Lanka in the one-day series but I won't make rash statements."

Vaughan said he wanted to test his knee over the next fortnight.

"This is the beginning. I need to get through a few games and test it out over two or three weeks," he said.

"This comeback was a really specific plan and rehabilitation programme. It's been hard work."
