Alastair Cook signs a three -year deal with Essex:
Despite Cook will be out from the international cricket, he will continue his trade with Essex County Club. He will feature for Essex for the next three years in the County tournaments.
Coming to Sam Curran, possibly, a bright future is ahead for the southpaw. He is already in talks with the Indian Premier League franchise. Hopefully, he will find a place in England ODI setup as well.
