England and Wales Cricket Board managing director Paul Downton says he would be surprised if Alastair Cook is not captain at the World Cup.

Cook averages of 24.95 in his last 21 one-day internationals, during which time England have won eight matches and suffered four series defeats.

After a 90-run defeat in the sixth ODI in Sri Lanka condemned England to a 4-2 series defeat, coach Peter Moores said there is no guarantee that Cook would remain one-day captain and that his position will be reviewed after the tour.

Downton confirmed that a similar discussion was held following the 3-1 home series defeat by India at the end of the English summer.
