Michael Vaughan has been left out of the BBC team for the upcoming Ashes tour of Australia.
The BBC said it had taken the decision to avoid a potential “conflict of interest” in relation to ongoing allegations of racism.
The former England captain was stood down from his BBC radio show earlier this month after being implicated in allegations of racism made by his former team-mate Azeem Rafiq, which Vaughan denies.
“We require our contributors to talk about relevant topics and his involvement in the Yorkshire story represents a conflict of interest.”
Rafiq alleged Vaughan said “too many of you lot, we need to do something about it” to him and a group of other players during a Yorkshire match in 2009.
“It is extremely upsetting that this completely false accusation has been made against me by a former team-mate, apparently supported by two other players.
“I have been in contact with the six other players from that team and not one of them has any recollection of the remark being made.”
