Cook to sit out of West Indies tour, Broad to captain England side

London, Jan 27 : Following a disastrous loss in the final one-day international against Australia, skipper Alastair Cook will sit out of England's limited-overs tour of West Indies as the team prepare for the Twenty20 World Cup in Bangladesh in March.


Cook, who does not play the T20 format for England, will not be part of the squad to the Caribbean during which the visitors will play three ODIs and three T20 matches, starting February 28.

Cook denied captaining the side during the West Indies tour, and said the next six weeks would be great for them to start building the team.

The skipper failed to score a fifty in the five matches against Australia after a dismal Ashes series, during which the visitors were whitewashed 5-0.

England lost the final one-dayer on Sunday in Adelaide to lose the series 4-1, Sport24 reports.

England's limited-overs coach Ashley Giles said Stuart Broad, who leads England in the T20 format, will be promoted by the selectors for the ODIs in West Indies.
