So Alistair Cook bowed out of Cricket yesterday. Is there any truth in the rumour that he is now going to send us some Letters From America?!

Smile In all these years, I've never realised the same names, with or without the extra 'e'!

Fairytale ending, though. He'll be sorely missed. Don't know about lettuce from America...Jennings bats with a stick of rhubarb. If we don't have better openers than him, then we're in a really sorry state.

...with a flourish!

A wonderful career bookended with centuries....it couldn't have been written any better. Cool Cool ....thoroughly deserved.

Aggers was the star on Twitter yesterday with a reply to a tweet from Piers Morgan...

Morgan wrote ...

Goodbye, Alastair Cook.
We've had our differences, but it would be churlish not to acknowledge your enormous contribution to English cricket.
You made the very best of your abilities, worked ferociously hard, scored a barrel-load of runs & ended on a high. Congratulations.


To which Aggers replied....

So funny knowing Cook couldn’t give a flying f***

Laughing Laughing Loved it and thousands of others did too!

Very Happy Very Happy A lovely put down for the appalling Piers Morgan.

I feel a bit sorry for Captain Joe Root though. He also scored a century, which was barely noticed!
