The England’s Legendary cricketer Alastair Cook picked his all time playing XI. Surprisingly, no any Indian cricket is available in this list. The Lord’s Cricket Ground posted the video on their official Facebook page about this.
Here is the Playing XI: Graham Gooch (C), Matthew Hayden, Brian Lara, Ricky Ponting, AB de Villiers, Kumar Sangakkara (WK), Jacques Kallis, Muttiah Muralitharan, Shane Warne, James Anderson and Glenn McGrath.
Earlier, Cook announced his retirement from the International Cricket. He told,”
After much thought and deliberation over the last few months I have decided to announce my retirement from international cricket at the end of this Test series against India.”
He added: “Although it is a sad day, I can do so with a big smile on my face knowing I have given everything and there is nothing left in the tank. I have achieved more than I could have ever imagined and feel very privileged to have played for such a long time alongside some of the greats of the English game. The thought of not sharing the dressing room, again, with some of my teammates was the hardest part of my decision, but I know the timing is right.
“I have loved cricket my whole life from playing in the garden as a child and will never underestimate how special it is to pull on an England shirt. So I know it is the right time to give the next generation of young cricketers their turn to entertain us and feel the immense pride that comes with representing your country.”
