Time for England to surpass Aussies and dominate all fronts: Vaughan

My message to England this morning is simple: massive congratulations on a spectacular World Cup win, now go and dominate every format cricket has to offer.

There is no reason why this group should not be looking to emulate the great Australian sides of the 1990s and 2000s by ruling the world in limited-overs and Test cricket. In fact, they can go one better by dominating the Twenty20 game as well.

They have the skills; they have the right age profile, with only a handful of players unlikely to make it to the next World Cup in India in 2023; and they have the right attitude. They must aspire to be the world's pre-eminent team and Sunday's victory has given them the perfect platform for that.

The question now is where does Eoin Morgan fit into the plan? There is zero doubt that no one was more important to England's successful campaign than Morgan - it was his vision, his drive and his ethos which fuelled this team.

Clearly, he has a decision to make over his future in the 50-over format, and I am sure he will sit down with the people he trusts and respects over the coming days and reach a decision, one way or the other.

Will he make it to India 2023? Unlikely. Morgan is 32 and one-day cricket is not really a game for older men.

England captain Eoin........
