England great Former Cricker Geoffrey Boycott has said current pattern Alastair Cook to accept the "constructive" criticism from former players. Cook Graeme Swann labeled a "pretend friend" after the retired former England off-spinner said the side "did not have a cat in hell's chance" of winning the World Cup next year in Australia and New Zealand.

Swann also said Cook opening batsman must leave the game one day and his style does not suit and white cricket ball, but remain as Test captain.

From Swann made ​​his initial statements, England fell behind 2-0 with two to play, in a one-day series at home against current world champions India, with the long-standing problem of how to play I turn to bowl again proving a thorn in their side.

"England needs a new approach, but also must be able to accept constructive criticism from former players like me," said the boycott in his column for the Daily Telegraph published on Monday.

"Just look at how Cook responded when his' friend named 'Swann made ​​constructive comments on the team one day England and Cook got his' panties in a twist." What you must understand is Graeme is now paid to give their opinions on media, "said Boycott.

"He and other former players like myself, are not there to flatter England or be cheerleaders for the captain and his players. Everyone wants England to play well and win, but if we think that we have not done well are we supposed to say anything well, that's not going to happen. People like Graeme Swann and Michael Vaughan can see the format of the team could be better and so can I. Take your heads out of the sand and in the modern era of day cricket or else otherwise there will be more bad days ahead. "He added.

As for the problems of England playing rotation - which emerged again in Saturday's loss at Trent Bridge, where players of slow bowling in India took six wickets for 112 runs between them - Boycott said: "England bowling either slow flat fields when not turning.

"It's a different ball game when the ball spins. Then shrivel-tied and terrified to use their feet against the spinners. Saturday at Nottingham none of them fell onto the pitch and play with the turn and seemed to drive the ball into the gaps for singles to rotate the strike.'s bat sweeping cross or sweep back seemed to be his only solution. always releases have become England abroad has been useless. exceptions are Colombo Bombay in 2012 and the same year that England won because Kevin Pietersen [now exiled from England configuration] two fabulous centuries meant England had plenty of races for two very good spinners, Graeme Swann and Monty Panesar makes bowling the opposition to place. Swann now has retired and seems Panesar has lost its focus. spinners can not play and have no one to bowling in the opposition. "said Boycott.

"We are still thinking in the old way when I played, pack his batting and bowl fast medium and long line," Boycott added that last appeared in England in 1982.

"That works only sews rolling fields, but the next World Cup is in Australia and New Zealand and do not have that kind of stuff."
