Former England captain Michael Vaughan is known for offering his blunt opinion especially on the matters related to cricket team of England. This time he has aggressively targeted Alastair Cook, the captain of England cricket team for the defeat of England in the ongoing ODI series wherein Team India is already leading by 3-0 and the last ODI is yet to be played. Vaughan is really annoyed as he has suggested that in case Cook is not ready to quit, he should be thrown out. Vaughan is particularly concerned about the remote chances of England winning the next world cup under the leadership of cook. In his column, published in The Telegraph newspaper of England, he has stated “ODI cricket is different. If he is not going to stand down then the tough call has to be made. If he is not willing to resign and James Whitaker and Paul Downton, the managing director of England cricket, can’t see that a change needs to be made, then I seriously question the vision of the men making decisions in English cricket.” He further stressed that “Cook is a stubborn man. He proved it this summer when he defied people calling for him to go and made his point by winning the Test series against India.” It is worthwhile to mention that recently Graeme Swann also raised voice for cook’s resignation from the ODI format. Vaughan has also seconded this opinion of Swann by stating “With six months to go, other teams are looking at this side and hoping that Cook remains as captain, and opens the batting at next year’s World Cup, because they know if that happens England will not be a threat.” In this emerging equation, it will be interesting to note that whether cook will be able to hold his position or a suitable replacement will take over. In any case, the opponent teams will definitely prefer cook to continue as a captain of England, which will be quite favorable for them.
