Britain wicketkeeper Jonny Bairstow demands the players need Alastair Cook to remain on as Test skipper. Cook, 31, is under expanding weight to venture down as captain after his group endured a 4-0 arrangement misfortune in India.
Be that as it may, Bairstow supported the Britain captain and said the players felt the left-gave opener was the man to lead them forward.
There’s been a considerable measure of discuss Alastair Cook’s future, yet for me he’s our commander and should remain in the occupation,he wrote in the Everyday Mail.
In 2016 he finished 10,000 and 11,000 Trials – that is incredible stuff in English batting. He’s our pioneer and we need him to remain.
Britain played 17 Tests in 2016, winning six, drawing three and losing eight – incorporating four in India. Nonetheless, Bairstow trusts the year can be recognized as a positive one notwithstanding the poor wrap up.
I truly trust individuals don’t pass judgment on 2016 on a 4-0 vanquish in India, however I acknowledge there’ll be a considerable measure of disillusionment,” he composed.
In any case, in the event that you make a stride back for a minute, you’ll understand we played five Test arrangements throughout the year, winning two, drawing two and losing just a single. The master plan lets you know that is not all that terrible.
We won in South Africa, who were number one at the time, then we drew with Pakistan, who were going to go top of the Test rankings themselves. At that point we ventured out to India, who – learn to expect the unexpected. – were number one as well.
There was likewise an outing to Bangladesh, who isn’t anything but difficult to beat at home: take a gander at their one-day record. They’d won six 50-over arrangements in succession there before we arrived. So a drawn Test arrangement was no disrespect.
My point is we’ve had some quite extreme arrangement to fight with. Yes, losing eight Tests in a year doesn’t look great. However, I don’t trust it recounts the entire story.
