Michael Vaughan wants Alastair Cook to step down as England ODI captain

Michael Vaughan takes to Twitter to reiterate stance that Alastair Cook should step down as ODI captain

Michael Vaughan has taken to Twitter to reiterate his belief that Alastair Cook should step down as England’s one-day international captain.

Former England skipper Vaughan called for the current captain to give up playing limited-overs cricket at the start of the India series, which has seen England lose heavily in both completed matches so far.

And after Cook was caught for just nine in the fourth ODI, Vaughan tweeted a picture of the Twenty20 squad to his 634,000 followers, boasting a caption which urged the beleagured captain to stand down.

Middle-order batsman Eoin Morgan has been named for the solitary T20i which takes place at Edgbaston on Sunday, with regular captain Stuart Broad recovering from knee surgery.

Vaughan had earlier said the he thought England did have “a cat in hell’s chance” of winning next year’s World Cup, and with plenty of ODI cricket between now and then, the woes could continue for Cook and his side.

The Sheffield man later posted his preferred England ODI squad for the World Cup, unsurprisingly excluding Cook and appointing Morgan as skipper.
