London, Aug.2 (ANI): England all-rounder Paul Collingwood credited captain Michael Vaughan for inspiring him to his career-saving century on Friday.
Vaughany told me Dont be reckless but be aggressive. I enjoyed having that freedom from the skipper going out and trying to take the bowlers on. Thats how I play my best cricket. I felt under a lot of pressure and this innings was very satisfying. This was very special. Everything went my way and its certainly a day Ill never forget, The Sun quoted Collingwood, as saying.
Collingwood reached his ton with a six, but there was no wild celebration.
It was muted because I wanted to keep the same rhythm I didnt want the celebration to affect that. I wanted to stay focused instead of running around like a loony tune, he added. (ANI)
