Morgan picked as captain of England over Cook

England Cricket Board announced Eoin Morgan over Alastair Cook as the captain of England's ODI team. Cook captained England in 69 matches, which is more than any other England captain, and having a win percentage of 52. ECB selection committee consisting Peter Moores, James Whitaker, Angus Fraser and Mick Newell made the call to drop Cook as captain in a meeting held on Friday, Cook after a series of poor England performances - the 5-2 defeat in Sri Lanka being the most recent. Cook has scored just one fifty in his last 22 ODI innings. Eoin Morgan captained England once in Sri Lanka. The decision was taken keeping ICC Cricket World Cup 2015. Former England captains Michael Vaughan, Alec Stewart and Nasser Hussain had all called for Cook to step down as captain.
