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.


The painful tour of Australia is finally over for England. They lost the final T20 match too by a huge margin.

England played a total of 13 international games on the tour out of which they lost 12. These numbers are enough to suggest how much humiliation the Poms suffered during their time down under.

When they had taken the flight to Australia, they would have been expecting themselves to bring all the three trophies home, but, right from the time the first ball got delivered in that Brisbane test match, nothing went right for them.



The England cricket team might have lost the Adelaide test match by a big margin, but, there are some positives to take out for them from that match. One of those positives is the way Joe Root batted in the second innings.

The last few weeks haven’t been easy for the 21 years old Yorkshire player. He had gone to Australia thinking that he would open at least in the first couple of test matches. But, that didn’t happen. He was demoted in the batting order in the first test match and was asked to bat at no. 6.



The off spinner of the England Cricket Team, Graeme Swann, has said that if his team has to win the Ashes series for the 4th consecutive time, it will have to post big totals in Australia.



The England cricket team was dismissed for just 232 runs in their first innings on the second day of the first test match against New Zealand which is being played at Lord’s.
At the end of the first day, the score of England was 160 for the loss of 4 wickets. The two not out batsmen at the crease were Joe Root and Jonny Bairstow.



The fast bowler of the England cricket team, Stuart Meaker, has expressed his delight over the fact that he will be playing under two great captains i.e. Graeme Smith and Ricky Ponting at Surrey in the ongoing County season.

Smith has already joined the Surrey squad and he will be leading the side in their first game this season against Somerset.

Smith will go to play for South Africa in the Champions Trophy in June and in his absence, Ponting will join the Surrey squad.



The captain of the England Cricket team, Alastair Cook, has said that the pitch in the third ODI against India was a flat one and the England team should have put more runs on the board.

The English batting order failed for the second time in the series and managed to score only 155 runs in the third ODI against India which was played at HEC International Cricket Stadium Complex, Ranchi.



The England cricket team lost three quick wickets in the last hour of the second day of the first test match against India and got into trouble. The Indian team declared its first innings on 521/8 and the England batsmen had to face 18 overs on the second day.



The England Cricket team has been defeated by West Indies in its first Super 8 match in the World T20 Championship played at the Pallekele International Cricket Stadium. West Indies won the match by 15 runs and managed to get two points. This was the second consecutive defeat of England in the tournament. The English team had to suffer a humiliating defeat against India in its last group stage match.



England Cricket Team has performed sensationally in the recently played ODI series against Australia. England has defeated Australia by an efficient margin of 4-0 in that series and climbed up to no. 3 in the ICC ODI rankings. Everything seemed to go well for England in that series. The batsmen as well as the bowlers have done their jobs. England looked a stabilized side in that series.
