Image result for Alastair cook resigns as England test captainEnglish cricketer Alastair Cook has resigned as England Test captain. After 59 Test matches – more than any other England skipper before him – the 32-year-old has decided now is the right time to call time on his leadership.

Cook, England’s leading scorer in Tests with 11,057 runs, became captain in August 2012 and led his country to Ashes glory on home soil in 2013 and 2015 as well as series wins in India and South Africa.

The ECB is yet to make an announcement on who will replace him – Joe Root is favourite to take over the captaincy.
