Default External Item: Vaughan yet to accept Ponting\'s goodwill gesture

Australian skipper Ricky Ponting's pre-Ashes handshake of goodwill, which encourages batsmen to take the word of the fielder in close catches, has not found favour with his English counterpart Michael Vaughan.

In a gentlemanly opening to each tour, Ponting has offered the proposal to rival captains as he tries to lift the spirit of the game and chop the number of referrals to the third umpire, which are often inconclusive

It is worth recalling that Vaughan stood his ground at Adelaide in 2002-03 when Justin Langer claimed a catch on 19, but he was reprieved by the technology and went on to score 177.

Vaughan is just emulating Aussie precedent. The Chappell brothers were SOB's in their time and Australia is singularly responsible for ruining cricket's reputation as a gentleman's game. Personally I find Dada to be more obnoxious.
