Banton, who was roped in by Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) this season, is currently playing in the Big Bash League (BBL) for Brisbane Heat.
Vaughan feels Banton should sweat it out in County cricket
Vaughan said that had he been in charge, he would have asked Banton to give up IPL and sweat it out for Somerset in the County Championship, since the sixth spot in the English Test side is up for grab.
"I have seen enough of Banton to know he is a superstar in the making," he wrote for The Telegraph.
The IPL can wait: Vaughan
"I'm not sure a stint in the IPL right now, when he might not get a lot of game time. He has plenty of time to go to India. He needs to play four-day cricket and score some early hundreds," Vaughan further noted.
Banton's career in numbers
As far as Banton's career is concerned, it has been decent.
In 21 First-Class innings, he has scored 570 runs at an average of 27.1, including five half-centuries.
