 With an eye  on the tests in Aus in  November Reckon Chappell and the Australians  would like to see a New England Capt in place rather than the guy who beat them in then own backyard.
Another reason The ECB will want Cook to stay as Capt

Cook will happily stab other players in the back to save his own

Whoa, have you got any proof that such a thing has ever happened. That's one hell of a statement to make about someone!!!

I don't know cook at all personallyl, l only know of him from what I've seen on the pitch and interviews, and while some of his captaincy and post match interviews aren't my cup of tea, you can't go round slinging accusations like that just because youre not a fan.

Strauss was skipper last time we won. Cook has never won a test in Australia as skipper.

Hasn't he played in both the whitewashes though?
I think his record as a player in Australia is something like:
Played 15: Won 3 - Drawn 1 - Lost 11

As a player his record in Australia  is, played 15, lost 11, drawn 1 won 3.

He was involved in two 5-0 whitewashes. One of which he was captain. I'd say he has some scars and Aussies will probably be happy to have him in charge.

I think it would be a smart move to blood a new captan now and give him time to settle in

Yes if Cook is going to go  he should go before the start of the uk cricket season also there's no point in him being captain during England's 2017 summer tests then resigning.

All this talk of him going is ridiculous really.

It's 7 months 'til he needs to captain again, plenty of time for him to re-energise and more importantly, plenty of time for him, Farbs and Trev to sit down, talk through his performance in India and areas where he is struggling with the role of captain and put it right - all t needs is a bit of common sense.

I don't see any stunning candidate to take over from him, and whilst I am not a 100% fan of his rather defensive captaincy, handing over everything to the likes of Root / Stokes / Butler will be the ruin of them in the way it was with Botham, Gower etc.

Sometimes you have to tweak waht you already have.
