Former England cricketer Ian Botham has clearly expressed that replacing under fire skipper Alastair Cook would enhance England’s probability of performing better in the World Cup, although it would not automatically mean they would win the cup.

Ian Botham also said that England would set off on a plucky new exploit in 2015 in Australia, but added that unless they make some difficult decisions and play to best of their it would simply be another World Cup deja vu.

Ian also added that the less said about the previous five World Cup crusades the better, so he added that the probability is there to do something exceptional.

In his column in a popular newspaper Ian Botham added that even if England does not win the world cup they could still give them all something to encourage and get excited about, and he said that if they theteam clear the quarterfinals, which he feels they should, anything can happen.

According to the former England Test celeb Botham, the question nevertheless is whether the selectors want to make a difficult job even tougher.

Botham clearly expressed that replacing Alastair Cook as skipper would not automatically mean England would win the world cup but he feels that it should enhance their chances.

He also admitted that they would find out in a two or three days whether they have decided to continue with a man so wretchedly out of form that he needed four lives to reach 32 runs on Tuesday against Sri Lanka.

Sri Lanka defeated England 5-2 in the 7 match One Day International series with Alastair Cook failing to effect on the ground again.

Ian Botham said that if the selectors do not replace Cook then, as the captain said in his own words, he does not have complaints, because it would be a cricketing resolution based on what they have all seen in the last two years. Botham also said that if they do, it would be a bet, and one that he hopes would pay off. He said that he wants to see England team back to winning ways.
