England pace bowler James Anderson has announced that the national team have to move on from Alastair Cook’s sacking as ODI captain.

Cook was stripped of the captaincy following England’s disastrous tour of Sri Lanka in Novmeber, where they were thrashed 5-2 in the seven-match ODI series.

“I’m gutted for my mate,” Anderson told The Sun. “However, as brutal or heartless as it may sound, I can’t go to Australia worrying about how Cooky is feeling or wishing he was with us.

“My only consideration is to focus on helping the team in the Tri-series with Australia and India and then the World Cup that follows.

“Cooky has a couple of months now to try and get over the disappointment. I’m sure it will be hard watching the guys playing in the World Cup on TV, but he must look forward to the Test matches in 2015.”
