Alastair Cook will lead England in ICC World Cup 2015
Under fire England captain Alastair Cook will lead the team at ICC World Cup 2015
Alastair Cook, the captain of the England Cricket Team has been drawing severe criticism all around after the English Cricket Team lost the ODI series to India by 3-1 recently. Many of the former English cricketers have given judgment against the captaincy skills of Cook. Geoffrey Boycott and Graeme Swann have been particularly vocal against the captaincy of Cook.
There were apprehensions running around that Cook will not remain the skipper for England for a long time. But now, national selector James Whitker has made it clear that Alastair Cook, who has been under fire for his diminishing batting skills and captaincy, will be leading the England side at the ICC World Cup 2015 going to be held next year in Australia and New Zealand. The 29-year-old would also be given the opportunity to lead his team in the upcoming seven-match ODI series in Sri Lanka that is to be held in November this year.
Confirming this James Whitker told BBC that “We feel he is our best man to lead the team into the World Cup. He’s our number one batsman, he’s showed that in the past and he’ll show it again in the future. He’s our exceptional leader, he has shown huge amounts of fortitude and resilience over the summer, and I’d like to make it perfectly clear we are 100 per cent behind Alastair Cook as captain.”
