Ladbrokes make Eoin Morgan the 1/3 favourite to replace Alastair Cook as England's One-Day International captain at the end of the tour of Australia.

The bookmakers think it is a certainty that Cook, who has presided over eight defeats in all formats in Australia, will make way and Morgan is their choice to replace him.

Stuart Broad is a 3/1 chance but if you think Cook will still be in charge at the 2015 World Cup, Ladbrokes offer 6/1 against him staying in the job.

England have also been lengthened from 6/1 to 7/1 to win next year's World Cup.

Jessica Bridge, cricket betting expert at Ladbrokes said: "Captain Cook's on a sinking ODI ship as far as we're concerned.

"Morgan's the clear successor and it looks like it's a case of when and not if Cook quits."
