Alastair Cook: No guarantee for captain at World Cup - Moores

14 December 2014 :England coach Peter Moores says there is no guarantee of Alastair Cook being captain for next year’s World Cup.

Cook’s team trail Sri Lanka 4-2 with one game to play, the fourth one-day series loss in row under his leadership since last year’s Champions Trophy.

“Alastair has said clearly he is very keen to carry on, but also knows that that’s not his decision,” Moores said.

“Nobody has got the guarantee of that. I hear people say someone’s unsackable. That would be a ridiculous comment.”

But Moores, who began his second spell as England coach in April, also added: “If you ask my opinion on Alastair, I would have Alastair as captain for the World Cup, but we will review at the end of the series, not just Alastair’s captaincy, but the whole team, and pick our squad.”

Cook has made only 87 runs in his five innings in the series at an average of 17, with a highest score of 34.

In his last 21 one-day internationals, the left-handed opener has scored 499 runs at an average of 24.95 – with only one half century.
