|Cardiff (Wales), Sep.16 (ANI): England one-day captain Alastair Cook has admiited to being upset over Graeme Swann being made the national team’s stand-in Twenty20 captain, as he wanted the job himself to go with his permanent leadership of the 50-over team.
Speaking before today's final one-dayer against India in Cardiff, The Sun quoted Cook, as saying: "I was disappointed — you are when your name's in the hat and it doesn't go your way. I think part of the reason was that the selectors did not want to disturb the opening partnership of Craig Kieswetter and Alex Hales.”
"It's disappointing but you can't overly worry about selection. It has given a chance to Graeme and he'll do a good job. He thinks about the game when he is bowling so it should be quite easy for him against West Indies,” he added.
"I don't know if he'll be an orthodox or adventurous captain but he'll probably try a few things," Cook said of Swann. (ANI)
