Alastair Cook rues England’s missed opportunities

Alastair Cook rued missed opportunities to win the fifth and final One Day International (ODI) against Australia. The England captain however gave credit to Australia for seizing the important moments in the game en route their thumping 4-1 win.

Asked if he would captain England against the West Indies, he told Sky Sports: “No, I won’t be. The T20 guys have got their World Cup in Bangladesh and I think we see it as a great six weeks for them to start building the team.

“They’re never together very often and it gives them and Broad and Giles time to really have six weeks together to build for Bangladesh.”

Cook is due to leave Australia on Monday and he said that he will sit down with team director Andy Flower and new managing director Paul Downton to discuss the team’s future when he returns to England.

“I fly home on Monday, and when I get home, over the next week or so I’m sure there will be meetings to have,” he said.
