Cook calls on cricket fraternity to ensure Test format remains 'pinnacle' of sport

London , Sun, 29 Apr 2012 ANI

London, Apr 29(ANI): England one- day cricket captain Alastair Cook has called on the game's administrators to ensure that Test cricket remains the pinnacle of the sport.ook admitted the world needs to act now to ensure Twenty20 cricket does not prevent international cricket being the best versus the best.

"Quite clearly I believe that Test cricket is the pinnacle. I still think most players believe that too. Twenty20 has done wonderful things - the numbers of kids playing has gone up, the number coming to watch game has gone up. So it's been an important thing for the game. But we need to manage things well to protect Test cricket," The Sun quoted him, as saying.

Cook will turn out Essex against Glamorgan and says he is ready to readjust his technique in preparation for the first Test against the West Indies on May 17.

Cook is also determined to ensure that England remains at the top of the world rankings.If we play to our potential we'd expect to win this upcoming Test series - but it is not our right to do so. Any Test side is a good side and we need to be at our best to beat West Indies," The Sun quoted him, as saying.

"It's a great chance to continue from the final Test win over Sri Lanka, which came after a disappointing time for us over the winter.When things go well it's easy to get on, but when things don't go well it can be harder to stay together as a side," he added. (ANI)
