    Given the choice between four more failures from Cook and 4-1, or a big hundred and 5-0, I'd probably go for the 4-1 but I'd think twice. With some of the dick head millennials currently polluting the England camp, a bona fide legend like Cook doesn't deserve to go out like this.

    As an aside, the way Cook immediately rose above the Aussie 'sledging' early doors on this tour was absolute class. Everything short of looking down at his shoes and giving it 'you missed a bit'.

    I’d like to see Cook make a ton in Sydney then retire. I wonder if he’s a bit like Huss at the end, still loving the game but thinking nothing could be worse than touring with this pack of young arseholes.

    Just heard Andrew Strauss’ wife has been diagnosed with cancer as well and he’s headed home. Thoughts with his family. Horrible ****ing business.

    I think he may well be fed up of them. He has never drunk so is out of the loop there and they seem to want to have a good time rather than put the effort in. Coach must be under pressure too for allowing it all to go on, maybe Strauss too but under the circumstances he has enough on his plate at present so his deputy needs to step up and crack the whip.

    12,000 Test runs, 4-time Ashes winner, 31 Test hundreds, father of two. On tour with a bunch of 'lads' whose accolades include owning ripped jeans and concave faces. A man can have only so much patience.

    Best make sure you refrain from making tIll-informed comments as well then although watching hasn't stopped that in the past I guess.

    I just want Cook to get a triple before he's finished, which I really don't think is far away

    A 2nd innings 335 at the SCG and then off into the sunset.

    I wonder if Joe Root will try taking Cook to a boat party too.

    I would be happy with this end, Huss retiring at the top of his game compared to what happened to Ponting was so nice.

    I get the feeling that Cook is just above that sort of thing. If I was one of the Aussies I wouldn't even bother sledging him, and I would feel bad about it if I did.

    He's just a supreme gentleman

    This video reminds me of that experience.

    it's essentially the equivalent of the bully hitting someone and saying "stop punching yourself", and he hasn't actually acknowledged the rule that Atherton has mentioned while at the same time acknowledging the very poor level of skill of some batsman (" yeah, some guys struggle to hold the bat"). Instead it's just lame jingoistic trolling (which I get is Johnson's thing now and unfortunately for the next 40 years, so perhaps I'm stupider for even acknowledging it) but there's actually an issue here. There's a rule there to protect **** batsman and it doesn't have as a footnote "but hey suck it up you **** **** get better or enjoy getting hit in the head". But the rule doesn't get enforced. The only time bowlers get called out for dangerous bowling is when they accidentally bowl a beamer which seems odd when we seeing Broad being repeatedly targeted essentially because he got hit and now he's a bit cooked. I mean, it didn't even get called out when Clarke was saying get ready for a broken ****ing arm. If Johnson had said something constructive like "well I think the rule is obsolete and should be removed from the laws of the game" I wouldn't be calling it stupid, but he's just straight up ignored the matter to do some stupid trolling. For my part, going back to 3 bouncers an over but being more protective towards tail order batsman would be a happy compromise
