Alastair Cook: England captain had 'refreshing & enjoyable' break

Captain Alastair Cook and coach Peter Moores speak to the media ahead of the West Indies tour that could go a long way to deciding the England futures of both men.

Cook says having time away from cricket has been "refreshing and enjoyable", after he was sacked as captain of the one-day team just weeks before the start of the World Cup.

Moores stated he would "not focus" on any issues concerning Kevin Pietersen and that his only focus would be the players on the tour.

The 16-man squad gathered at a hotel at Gatwick Airport on Wednesday, before England fly to St Kitts for two two-day warm up matches in preparation for the first Test against West Indies in Antigua, which starts on 13 April.
