Legendary all-rounder Sir Richard Hadlee has backed under pressure England captain Alastair Cook. He has also told the ECB to do the same and show faith in their out of form captain. Cook has not performed well with the bat this year and has also seen his team fail to win in nine tests.

Hadlee said, “Twelve months ago, everyone would have said he’s a fine captain and a wonderful batsman for England. I just hope the England selectors have given him confidence and say to him ‘you’re going to be captain for next three games as you’re a good enough player to turn your form around’.”

He added, “I suspect by time Alastair Cook ends his career, he’ll probably be England’s most successful ever captain, the leading run scorer in the history of English cricket and the most Test centuries for an England player. I expect he’ll turn it around with full support and everyone backing him.”

England trail India 1-0 in the five-match series ahead of the third Test.
