Grayson backs Cook to hit back

December 28, 2014 11:38:14 UK

Essex director of cricket Paul Grayson is confident that a rest will do England Test captain Alastair Cook good in the long run.

Cook has been axed as one-day skipper ahead of the World Cup in Australia and New Zealand, leaving him time away from the game to try and recover the form which has deserted him across all formats in the last 12 months.

I’m sure he’ll pull through it like any setback he has had in his career.

However, Grayson is confident that Cook will return afresh and ready to take on the challenges of international cricket once again.

He told the Essex Chronicle: “He’s been the first to admit that he’s not scored the amount of runs and England have not won the amount of games that he would have liked while he has been captain.

“I’m sure he’ll pull through it like any setback he has had in his career, because he’s resilient, he’s strong mentally and hopefully this will give him time to reflect on his Test career.

“I think everyone who knows Cooky and cares about him, wants him to really find his best form in Test cricket again and be a real dominant leader for England while continuing to be our best player.

“He’s had a few critics over the last couple of years about his captaincy style but he’s actually been very good and been very successful as England captain, but I think the most important thing for him is that he rediscovers his best form again.”

England and Cook are 2.50 to win the home Ashes series next summer, with Australia 2.00 to take the series victory and 1.50 to retain the little urn.
