- Team India beat England by 151 runs at Lord’s Cricket Ground in London
- The former England captain’s bat was thundering in Cardiff, 150 km from the Lord’s ground.
- Alastair Cook has made a big splash in the Royal London Cup, has said goodbye to international cricket
England’s squad has been announced for the third Test against India at Headingley. David Malan has been included in this team, replacing Dom Sibley. Malan is returning to the Test team after three years. Well, jokingly, but if England ends the retirement of their former captain Alastair Cook and includes him in the Test team, then maybe something good will happen to them. We are saying this because Alastair Cook, who scored the most Test runs for England, may have retired three years ago, but his bat is still roaring.
Here England was losing, and there..
As Indian bowlers were celebrating after putting pressure on England on the final day of the Lord’s Test, beating them by 151 runs. At the same time, in Cardiff, 150 km from the Lord’s ground in London, former great captain Alastair Cook, who scored the most runs in Test history in England (12,472), was playing a brilliant innings. This 36-year-old batsman is currently playing in England’s ODI tournament Royal London Cup. Cook, playing for Essex, was scoring a half-century against Glamorgan when India beat England by 151 runs at Lord’s. He scored 68 runs in 66 balls that day, hitting 11 fours.
Not only this, four days ago there was a big bang, the match was tied
Not just a half-century against Glamorgan’s side, but Alastair Cook’s bat was also roaring four days ago when he scored a thumping century in the match against Lancashire. Batting first, Lancashire scored 250 runs in 50 overs losing 6 wickets. To answer, Essex had lost 3 wickets for 99 runs. There also Alastair Cook saved the team’s shame. Cook hit a scintillating century and played a blistering innings of 110 off 128 balls which included 11 fours. The match was very exciting, in the 48th over, the cook was out and the match was tied in the end. Essex scored 250 runs in 50 overs for the loss of 8 wickets.
