FAIL that is all I can say.
No-one's saying you need a perfect technique to bat in the top 3. Cook's technique has never been great, sometimes he bats without one. Cook has done very well in other series, you don't compile nearly 5000 Test runs without a good series.
Some good examples:
Debut series vs India 2005-06
vs Pakistan 2006
All 3 series vs West Indies (2007, 2008-09, 2009)
Tour of Sri Lanka 2007-08
Home & away vs South Africa (2008, 2009-10)
