The opener will no longer be ODI skipper.
Alastair Cook has been removed from his position as one-day international captain for the England national team.
Cricket World Cup: Zimbabwe dump coach Stephen Mangongo just weeks out from the tournament.
Phillip Hughes: Late cricketer’s brother scores symbolic 63 in Sydney grade return.
Five most courageous innings in Test cricket history: Australia captain Michael Clarke features, along with England star.
The decision comes following a string of bad results – both for the team and individually – and Cook will be replaced as skipper by Eoin Morgan.
The 29-year-old was given the role back in 2011 and although started promisingly has been hampered by poor form in recent times.
Cook averages just 27.52 over the last 20 ODIs and has overseen series defeats both home and away to Sri Lanka over the past 12 months.
It has been a difficult year for the opener as a whole with the 5-0 Ashes thrashing and the sacking of Kevin Pietersen also coming in 2014.
Many think Cook should also be dropped as Test captain as well, although Morgan is unlikely to take that spot as he not currently part of the five-day setup.
There will also now need to be a new partner for Moeen Ali at the top of the order, with Ian Bell and Alex Hales the favourites.
