England coach Peter Moores is adamant the decision to remove Alastair Cook from his role as captain was “brave” and that it will boost his side’s chances of winning the 2015 Cricket World Cup.
Cook was stripped over the one-day captaincy last month, leaving replacement Eoin Morgan just two months to adapt to the role ahead of the start of the World Cup next month.
Moores said it was a tough decision to make, but a necessary one.
“We’d got to a position where it felt like it was the right thing to do,” Moores is quoted as saying by AAP.
“It was a braver decision to change it. It felt like the right decision to move and we (the selectors) did that.
“I’m comfortable with that and I think we’ve got the right people on the plane. We’ve got to go out there now and we’ve got to perform.
“We’ve got to go there with a strong focus and we’re going there to try and win the World Cup.”
England open its World Cup campaign on February 14 against Australia at the MCG.
