Bio

After plenty of speculation about whether Alastair Cook would hang on to the England one-day captaincy throughout 2014, the ECB confirmed Eoin Morgan would replace the batsman as ODI skipper for the ICC Cricket World Cup 2015.

He was also missed a place in the final 15-man squad for the tournament, continuing an unlucky run for Cook and Cricket World Cups. He made his one-day international debut in 2006 but missed out on a spot in the 2007 Cup squad after being overlooked by selectors.

It was a similar story for the batsman for the 2011 tournament when he was dropped from the one-day side before being reinstated and made captain shortly after.

While Cook has had his critics in one-day cricket, he has five hundreds and 19 fifties to his name. 

The batsman has a better record in Test cricket, where he has scored more than 8400 runs from 109 matches, including 25 centuries and 38 fifties. Cook was the second youngest batsman after Sachin Tendulkar to pass 5000 Test runs. 

He has been captain of the Test team since 2012
