Test cricket gives ultimate satisfaction: Alastair Cook

Former England Test batsman, Alastair Cook, reminisced about the days when he played Test Cricket for England. The 35-year old opening batsman played a notable amount of Test Cricket for his country in which he scored over 12000 runs at an outstanding average of 45.23

Alastair Cook was recently lent with "Knighthood" for his services to England cricket. Alastair Cook waved towards the time when he played Test cricket for England. Currently playing for Essex in the county, he highlighted the prestigious feelings he had when he played for England.

"This is the first year that I have ever played cricket without the carrot of international cricket and without that motivation of something bigger. No disrespect to county cricket, but when you are playing for England, it is the ultimate, it is what has always driven me to push myself above and beyond".

"Test cricket gives ultimate satisfaction that I don't think any other type of cricket does due to the nature and longevity of it", he added. Sir Alastair Cook played his last Test for England in September 2018 against India at the Oval. His legacy will remain imprinted on the history of England cricket till eternity.
