After retiring from International Test Cricket, Alistair Cook, the former England captain has decided to join Essex Country Cricket Club in Chelmsford. He has given a boost to the club by signing a long term contract. The contract will run for 3 years from 2019.
Essex Head Coach Anthony McGrath announced: “It’s great news that Cooky has committed his future to the Club.”
“He’s one of the best batsmen in the world and he’s so important for us both on and off the pitch. He’s a great person to have around the Club and is a great role model for the young players coming through. He also has the ability to change a game with his batting and that’s something everyone wants in their team.”
Alistair Cook played a prominent role in the Essex side which won the County Championship in 2017.
It’s a opportunity for his fans to come and watch him play, while he mentors the young talent.
