CRICKET: Alastair Cook set to stay on as England's ODI captain

Published:Tuesday | September 23, 2014 | 1:28 PM

Alastair Cook is expected to remain captain when England selectors name their squad tomorrow for the One-Day International (ODI) series in Sri Lanka, which starts in November.

Several former players have called for the 29-year-old Cook to be replaced following series defeats by Sri Lanka and India.

England play seven ODIs in Sri Lanka, starting on November 26.

They contest a tri-series against India and hosts Australia in January before the 2015 World Cup in Australia and New Zealand starts in February.

Batsman Cook was appointed one-day captain in 2011 and led England to the top of the International Cricket Council ODI rankings the following year.

England have lost their last four ODI series at home, although they reached the final of the Champions Trophy on home soil in 2013.
