Cook - an apology
For 12 months I was trying to get rid of Alastair Cook. By rights, the boy should never have been near that England team. He simply did not deserve to be picked by his country. Yet picked he was. And boy did he deliver. Never let it be said I can't say sorry. I have been well and truly found out, just like Graeme Swann was on this tour. Cook went away and fixed his blindingly obvious technical fault. It may have taken far too long for him to realise he shouldn't chase pitched up deliveries outside off stump, but when he finally worked it out, wow - what a performance. Not that the Aussies seeemd to notice. MUCH more on the behaviour of the Australians to follow, but Alastair - I take it all back. Well played.
