Cook Wants to Stay as ODI Captain

England skipper Alastair Cook has confirmed that he wants to remain as ODI skipper, and tried to put to bed any reports that he was about to step down in the shorter form of the game....

Cook said ahead of the final One Day International in Adelaide: "I think what I've learned over three years as a one-day captain is that it would be wrong so close to a World Cup to change.

"We are getting some very valuable experience here of conditions in which we are going to play during the World Cup. If I am still given the opportunity, then I'd like to be captain." he concluded.

Cook has been under pressure all winter, with the Ashes lost by virtue of a 5-0 whitewash, and then he had to suffer his one day troops slip to a 3-0 deficit in the five match 50 over series, before they rallied in Perth to secure their first win of a wretched tour.
