Alastair Cook faces unclear future as one-day England captain

Published Add your comment

England captain Alastair cook has admitted that he could resign as one-day captain as his side trail 3-0 to Australia in the one-day series.

This latest defeat comes just weeks after Australia whitewashed England 5-0 in their home Ashes series, but Cook still has a healthy win record as Captain winning 29 of the 52 internationals where he has taken charge.

Australia has been a dismal tour for England with Jonathan Trott, Graeme Swann and Steve Finn all heading home early, the team have managed just two wins against the Australians.

England headed into the tour full of confidence after winning The Ashes 4-0 back in the summer, and although the left-handed opening batsman said he could not make a decision on his future "in the middle of the series" he does think that English cricket will see a change.

He told BBC Sport: "I think there will be some changes. We have kept losing games of cricket and I haven't been able to turn it around."

With just two-one day matches left, Cook now has the task of trying to turn the result around. He added: "I've got a job to try and turn this around, try and win one of these games. That's the task at hand.

"I'm competitive. I want to leave everything out on the pitch," he added. "We'll deserve the stick we get because we haven't won games of cricket. Simple deal."

"I want to be part of a successful one-day team, I feel that I'm a good enough player to do that and my record suggests that I can do that."
