Alastair Cook: losing quick wickets led to England’s downfall
England captain Alastair Cook blamed his batsmen losing wickets at regular intervals for the visitors downfall, which led to them losing 4-1 in the One Day Internationals (ODIs) at the back of losing the Ashes 5-0.
Cook reflected on the positives on the tour and praised the efforts of Ben Stokes, England’s stand-out performer, Jos Buttler and pacer Chris Jordan and gave credit to Australia for winning the crucial moments in the series.
Cook who will surely reconsider his place as England skipper after the tour finishes said, “I think I am going to have to make a decision on that stuff after we take stock after the next two games.”
“We are going to have to sit down and talk about a lot of things. I think there will be some changes, I think English cricket needs a little bit of a change as well,” said Cook.
“Obviously in the last few months we haven’t played the cricket we are capable of and we have to look at the reasons why but this is not really the time and place to discuss that,” added Cook.
