'Battered' Cook happy to seek solace in sheep and pregnant wife

London, Jan. 27 : Following a disastrous loss in the final one-day international against Australia, England's Alastair Cook is planning on heading home for a long debrief.


After the recent defeat at the hands of the Australian team, Cook has been withdrawn from the upcoming ODI series and the cricketer is set to leave with team director Andy Flower and new managing director Paul Downton.

It was Ravi Bopara's dismissal that led to Cook's withdrawal, after the ball bounced off the wicketkeeper's chest and back to the bails right when England needed 9 runs out of 9 balls with just two wickets remaining, the Mirror reported.

Calling it a challenging tour, Cook said that he was not exhausted, but was ready to put the pads away for a couple of weeks and enjoy seeing his pregnant wife and a few sheep on the family farm.
