Farewell Alastair Cook.
I’ll be honest: I can’t forgive him for wrecking @KP24‘s England career, he bored me to tears as a batsman, has barely scored an important Test run for years & it’s weird he never sweats.
But he gave his all for England & played many invaluable innings. pic.twitter.com/1mlAthHmDg
