England’s recent one day record under Cook has been poor.
England captain Alastair Cook has refused to resign from the one day captaincy despite his side’s series defeat at the hands of India on Tuesday.
Cook’s team have been thrashed by India in their last three ODI’s and with the World Cup just five months away, the 29-year-old is facing calls for his resignation from former colleagues and pundits.
However, the Essex opener is refusing to step down as he still thinks that he is the right man to take the one day side to Australia and New Zealand.
“At this precise moment, I’m still hungry to do it,” Cook told BBC Test Match Special.
“If the management say they don’t want me, that’s a decision they make.”
Cook has had a tough year. During the summer he faced calls for his resignation from the test captaincy after England went 1-0 down to India mid-way through the five match series.
His side managed to turn around their test form and won the series 3-1 though, but their poor form in one day cricket has continued, with England losing the last six one day series that Cook has captained.
The Three Lions take on India in the final ODI of the series at Headingley on Friday. It will be England’s last one dayer at home before the World Cup in Australia and New Zealand, which starts in February.
