Former England skipper Michael Vaughan and retired spinner Graeme Swann believe that Alastair Cook should be axed as the captain of the England one-day team.


Swann believes there is not a cat in hell's chance of Cook leading England to World Cup glory.

The damning assessment came in an hour-long chat on the BBC before the first Royal London ODI against India was abandoned without a ball being bowled, The BBC reported.

They targeted Cook, Ian Bell and Gary Ballance because more power is needed with the bat in hand.

Swann said that he is the biggest England fan going but he doesn't think that they have got a cat in hell's chance in Australia. He added that he love's Cook dearly, but he does not think he should be bothering playing ODI cricket anymore.

Swann said that England is playing a 10-year-old game. He added that the sponsors here are Royal London and the tagline on their adverts is, 'We're so yesterday'.

The former spinner said that they couldn't sum up the England one-day team any more. He added that he would love to see some young, exciting, vibrant players picked and strip away the old-fashioned nature of their selections and one-day game.

Swan said that he wouldn't have Cook, Bell and Gary Ballance in the team in front of him, and added that he would have James Vince, James Taylor and Ravi Bopara.

Meanwhile, Vaughan added that England has made the same mistake now as in his time.

Vaughan said that Cook will do half a job as a batsman and he does not think the skipper will win England games as a tactician in one-day cricket.
