Alastair Cook paying no attention to chatter ‘outside’ the England dressing room
An indifferent performance, from the batsmen in particular, condemned England to an eight-wicket defeat on Saturday against Sri Lanka at the Premadasa Stadium, where the hosts won with more than 10 overs to spare in a rain-reduced match.
Pietersen tweeted: “Dear Alastair, if you care about England’s chances this winter, pls resign and just concentrate on Test cricket.”
But Cook said: “We’re the guys who have the honour of playing for England at this moment in time, and we have guys who have the opportunity to turn it round – not other people outside.”
