Alastair Cook retired from international cricket in 2018. He scored 12472 runs in 161 Tests for England with 33 centuries and 57 half-centuries.
Alastair Cook is counted among the most successful captains of England.
Former England captain Alastair Cook has retired from international cricket but is playing in domestic cricket. He plays for Essex. But now they may have to leave it. The reason for this is the tussle between the senior players of Essex and Ronnie Irani, who was the head of the cricket committee. The news about this is going on in the UK media. It said that last month the players and the coach had complained about Ronnie Irani. In the complaint, Iran was accused of excessive interference in the affairs of the team. At the same time, Ronnie Irani has also alleged that the players in the team are drinking alcohol. However, the players have denied this. It is believed that the club is under a lot of pressure after this controversy came to the fore.
Among the players whose controversy is going on, along with Alastair Cook, the name of captain Tom Westley is also there. The cricket committee has supported the players and later announced that Irani was leaving the cricket committee to focus on his business issues. But now a new twist has come in the matter. According to the Daily Mail newspaper, Ronnie Irani is part of the Essex General Committee and next year he may run for the post of chairman. Due to this the matter has worsened. Due to this, Cook can say goodbye to Essex at the end of this season to avoid any kind of controversy in the future.
Cook left international cricket in 2018
The controversy in Essex comes after the team failed to qualify for the top division of the County Championship in the current season. However, the performance of Alastair Cook, who is 36 years old, has been fine. They are still scoring runs. In such a situation, even if he leaves Essex, he will be easily taken by another county team. Alastair Cook retired from international cricket in 2018. He scored 12472 runs in 161 Tests for England with 33 centuries and 57 half-centuries. He also has more than 500 runs to his name in the 2021 county season. He also scored a century in the current match of Essex, which is his 69th century in first-class cricket.
