England captain Alastair Cook should step down statement by Warne


Alastair Cook should step down as England skipper, says Shane Warne who has described his captaincy in the series defeat by Sri Lanka as "horrific".

England lost the second Test by 100 runs to the visitors in their home pitch after Sri Lanka captain Angelo Mathews scored 160 the day before to build a commanding
lead of 350.

Warne has been a constant critic of Cook and the England captain recently called for a crackdown on "personal" attacks on his leadership.

Former batsman Geoffrey Boycott also spiced up Cook's captaincy as form as a "recipe for resignation".
