112/3 now. Kohli hits his 50
126/4 Kohli gone
Cook expected to retire after the final test.
Confirmed. He hasn’t been great this season but England have a big problem in replacing him.
New lad couldn’t do a hape worse though than recently.
True but he’s had more partners than Mick Jagger since Strauss retired and no one has staked a claim. Robson, Lyth, Jennings, Stoneman, Hameed etc
You know too much about this shit.
They need to find some young lad who doesn’t give a fuck. They won’t find another cook for a while.
Stick Curran in there.
What could possibly go wrong?
At least they can move on now. He outstayed his welcome.
Cook has been past it for 5-6 years now. He had the knack of producing a really big knock after long barren spells just as it looked as he was about to be dropped. It might just be liberating for a new pairing and not having to bat with Cook. Curran will surely be given first chance at it.
England `123/1. Cook 66 n.o…
Typical cook recently. Once there’s nothing much at stake. By all accounts a thoroughly nice man though. Good luck to him.
KP wouldn’t agree
cook gone for 71, root follows for here comes the collapse…
The Pataudi Trophy is already in the bag. The World Number 1 side have been conquered.
Followed by Bairstow.
