Alastair Cook sacked from World Cup Squad

Alastair Cook was sacked as England One Day captain because of his poor form.

The logic was that the team couldn’t be playing in the World Cup under somebody who himself was not confident about his game.

But, in that case, the charge should have been given to a player who had been having great run in all forms of the game in the recent past and going that way, the obvious candidate was Joe Root.

But, the English selectors agreed on putting the onus on Eoin Morgan who was perhaps in worse form than Cook.
