Actually, I think a credible analysis is:

 Mat Inns Balls Runs Wkts BBI BBM Ave Econ SR 4w 5w 10
Tests   4  2  102  56  4  3/16  3/16  14.00  3.29  25.5  0  0  0 
ODIs   14  7  228  175  4  1/13  1/13  43.75  4.60  57.0  0  0  0

Another Yorkie ;)

Indeed.  A quality one as well, based on those figures, and a batting average around 40...

Not saying he wasn't mate, probably one for the underrated xi as well

@seniormoment - I would suggest both of those might have been considered all-rounders rather than part timers?
Would have thought
Both Batsman first dolly was also  used as a partnership breaker  47 wickets from 44 tests.

I always thought Vaughan should have bowled more in test matches, i'm sure KP turned his arm over a few times too.

He joined Notts as an off spinner who batted six/seven.  I saw his second game for them at Headingley, he bowled well for an early season green top.
