England Test captain Alastair Cook will meet director of cricket Andrew Strauss on Friday but Press Association Sport understands there will be no decision on his future.

Cook suggested after the side’s 4-0 defeat in India before Christmas that he would take time to consider his future after four years and a record 59 matches at the helm.

It was thought the 32-year-old would present his decision to his predecessor, Strauss, at their post-series debrief but the England and Wales Cricket Board do not now expect a final verdict.

With the organisation’s emphasis now firmly trained on the Champions Trophy, held on home soil in June, Strauss is not ready to press Cook into an answer and has no intention of ousting him from the role.
