Cook will never improve as a player, says Ponting
Former Australia captain Ricky Ponting has written the England cricket team Captain off by stating that Alastair Cook will never improve as a player for the rest of his career.
According to the Dawn, the backlash comes at a time when the England skipper is already under fire from all sides for his poor form and performance. The loss suffered by England at the hands of India at Lord's on Monday made it the 10th successive test match that the team has lost in the recent times. England cricket team's ten losses are being dubbed as their worst stint in the format in the last 21 years.
Cook on the other hand, has failed to hit a test century in 27 innings and has scored only 129 runs in nine Test innings this year. His critics, including former England captain Nasser Hussain, has urged him to stand down as the Captain of the England cricket team following his dismal performance at the Lord's.
