Sir Alastair Cook, former English captain, remains to be one of the most cherished cricketers of the country. To honor the services of the left-handed batsman, the 34-year old was rewarded with the knighthood.
Recently, multiple reports came regarding Cook stepping back on the playing field to address the opening woes of England. However, the veteran of 161 Tests reiterated his retirement from the International cricket as he believes that the current generation has enough talent to make its mark and take the country forward.
The all-time leading run-getter in Test cricket for England feels contented with his career as he added that he’s nowhere near the mindset of donning whites again for the national team.
Reflecting on his career, the Gloucester born added that he had an incredible journey but lost his mojo towards the later part of his career. Highlighting the three-year deal inked with Essex, Cook also discussed his domestic cricket commitments.
