Ever since it was announced all over the media that Alastair Cook was all set to retire from playing international cricket, tributes have continued to pour in both from his erstwhile teammates and opponents alike. These tributes are coming from all around the world from players from past and present generations. They all salute Alastair Cook, England’s greatest ever run-scorer.

Cook’s England teammates over the years were quick to send across their words of praise.

See some of their social media salutations below;








James Anderson, who has spent most of his England days by Cook’s side, called the ‘Chef’ one of his best friends while paying a heartwarming tribute. “He’s probably the most driven person I’ve ever met. His work ethic is phenomenal. He trains harder physically than anybody and works tirelessly in the nets. He is an incredible example to everyone and I include myself in that,” Anderson wrote in his column for The Sun. 

“I don’t think I’d have achieved what I have without Cooky, not just as a colleague and captain but as a friend and someone I look up to. I’ve always tried to follow his example. As a cricketer, he is the consummate professional. As a bloke, he is down to earth, loyal and caring.”

Opponents from all over the world also congratulated Cook on his record-breaking international career.
