The English batsman made his debut for the county club, Essex against Nottinghamshire in 2003, and helped the side win the County Championship title in 2017.
Cook will play a vital role in England’s domestic cricket as the batsman who has scored 12,254 Test runs and made 32 centuries, is somewhat of a role model to young English cricketers.

Alastair Cook has signed a 3 year deal with Essex. Think it’s good for county cricket when England players play on after their international careers have finished. Find amazing how long they can keep going too. He could be playing for some time yet.
