Cook kicks back at 'donkey' jibe
London, June 28 (ANI): Alastair Cook began his career as England's one-day captain today with a blast at former skipper Mike Atherton.
On the eve of the opening 50-over clash against Sri Lanka at The Oval, Cook rejected former opener Atherton's claim he should not lead the team.
Atherton, now a Sky Sports pundit, described Cook as a "blocker at the top of the order" and "a bit of a donkey in the field".
Quick as a flash, Cook responded: "I suppose it takes one to know one!"e said: "Everyone is entitled to an opinion but I have scored a one-day hundred for England and I know I can score runs at the top of the order. As an international player, you are always under pressure and always having to prove yourself. I'm no different now.
My one-day game has evolved. I scored runs quickly in Bangladesh last year so I know I have the talent and skill to do it."
"I'm more experienced and have a better understanding of my game. I'm a more expansive batsman than I was, although I'm nowhere near the finished article." (ANI)
