Another legend of the game makes his way to pay tribute to Alastair Cook. The all-time legendary player from Pakistan, Shahid Afridi took his time to wish English stalwart all the best for future endeavours.
The decision to sign off the International cricket has been announced by Cook on Monday (September 3). Probably, he is one of the best opening batsmen England ever had in their cricket history.

The stylish Pakistani all-rounder termed Cook as one of the all-time greats of the game.
Furthermore, he wished all the best for Cook’s life after cricket and terms him as the remarkable ‘ambassador’ of the game.
On a concluding note, the former Pakistan skipper, Afridi showed his funnier side by adding that the pressure is on level terms after calling quits on the game.
His tweet read: ”A wonderful player who was a wonderful ambassador of the game! Alastair Cook, you are a true great of the game, all the very best in your life after cricket. Trust me so much less pressure.”

Nonetheless, it has been a glorious career for Cook. He finishes with massive numbers in his tally, and it takes quite a time for any English player to come near to the records registered by the former English skipper.
Meanwhile, Cook also bagged sterling numbers as a captain as well.
