Fresh one day defeat prompts Cook to look at England future

INTERNATIONAL CRICKET: Alastair Cook has indicated his time as England captain could be close to an end after the one-day international series against Australia was meekly conceded in Sydney.

England have endured a horror tour down under, losing all eight games against Australia in 86 days on tour including the 5-0 Ashes whitewash.

That has left the spotlight on their 29-year-old captain and, after the defeats have piled up, Essex batsman Cook has conceded it has left him contemplating his future.

“I think I’m going to have to make a decision on that after you take stock of the next two games (to end the series),” he said.
