Andrew Strauss tells Cook to behave like captain, stop treating teammates as close friends

Sydney, Dec. 17 : Former England captain Andrew Strauss has reportedly told Alastair Cook to behave like a captain and should stop treating his teammates as close friends.

Strauss believes that Cook needs to impose himself on the team as he is on the threshold of becoming the first England captain to lose an Ashes series for seven years.

According to the Sydney Morning Herald, Strauss said that Cook has got the team's senior players not performing and long term this would eventually be the making of Cook as it gives him opportunity to stand up and say that it is not good enough and the team needs to do things his way from now.

The former captain further said that Cook needs to give more in the field and must learn from Australia like the latter learned from England about how they play and have got against it using David Warner to disrupt the bowlers, the report added.
