The West Indies will play England in Grenada on Tuesday and English skipper, Alastair Cook has expressed his desperation to end his run-scoring drought in Tests. Cook has failed again and again to score big and got out at 11 and 13 in the first Test against the Windies.
As the match ended in a draw and with the series still 0-0, Cook wants to set the tone at the start of the innings and maybe go on to score a century after almost two years.
Cook told reporters on the eve of the second Test: “You ask how keen I am, it’s a pretty silly question in that sense, but [I am] desperate at the top of the order to set the tone well.
“It’s always important, every time you play for England as a top-order batter it’s great to score runs and help England win.
“I have been lucky that I have had a very simple game plan on the mental side throughout my career and it definitely works. I am a resilient guy who can try and play each ball on its merits for a long period of time, that is kind of what my success has been built on so that hasn’t changed.”
