He is tired and mentally struggling, we have had no idea of our best team in india. Of course theres nothing you can do about injuries and percevied loss of confidence.
Where he is right is no 5 and 7.
Ive said it before and know others disagree. Butler keeps, bairstow 5.
Then you work around that and it fits together.
We have to think long term and settle down.

Disagree! The bloke left his few day old son to go to India. Don't tell me that doesn't effect you mentally!

^ The point Chappel is making is that you lose time to bed-in the new captain if you wait till next Summer.

Career Cook should give a serious thought to his career as a batsman and a record breaker instead of England captain. Same for Root. Benji for captain or even Jos Butler in a leadership role (if he improves his Test batting).

Good point...ask yourself this..if Cook has such a jolly boys relationship with the ecb do you not think he could of been given one test match off and joined the squad later? Its been done before i am absolutley positive

This:

"Anyway, it is not up to Cook to decide whether he remains captain - it is the selectors' job. If they decide Cook is not the man for the job, out of deference to the sterling work he has done as a player, they should give him the option to resign."

I personally think he did request it and the ECB refused which has led to this whole thing!

Cmon @edge, opinions are like bum holes- everyone has one!

Chappell always bases everything on batsmen aren't young enough, cricket isn't attacking enough and Kim Hughes should be sacked.

Cook's a very stubborn man and won't quit. He'll leave the decision to the ECB just like the ODI captaincy - cook still thinks he's good enough for the odi game.
Cook will happily stab other players in the back to save his own

Id be staggered if any if that were true.and if it was it would of leaked out to the press over the last five years,same as it did with the bunfight over KP.
What he is actually doing is trying to rebuild a young team and shield them so they can play their natural games.
Im amazed more people cannot see it.
He is not a great or natural captain.
Root and stokes must know the england captains is the most critisised position after the eng football manager.
Root said the other day he has some growing up to do himself.
Speaks volumes that does
