Vaughan close to retirement: press reports

Former England skipper Michael Vaughan is to meet with Yorkshire officials later Sunday amid reports that he is set to announce his retirement from the game.
Vaughan, who is contracted to the England and Wales Cricket Board,- could make his final first class appearance in Sunday's Twenty20 Cup clash against Derbyshire at Headingley.
Another, less likely, possibility is that he could still play some part for his county in one-day games or even continue playing until the end of the season.
Vaughan resigned as England captain last August in a tearful press conference but he vowed to earn a recall to the side through sheer weight of domestic runs and set his sights on the Ashes Test series against Australia.
But since then the Yorkshire batsman has seen Ravi Bopara establish himself in the side with three consecutive hundreds against the West Indies and he missed out on selection when the squad was named last week.
