After Alastair Cook became the first England batsman to score 23 Test centuries, former captain Nasser Hussain, writing in the Dailymail, recollects his early memories of having seen Cook. He concedes how clueless he had been, then, about the future potential of the youngster.
I couldn't see it to be honest. All I saw was a left-hander whose head fell over when he played his shots and was full of nudges and nurdles. His name was Alastair Cook and he scored his 23rd Test hundred, more than any other Englishman. At the time I just said to Keith: 'That's all very well, Fletch, but I'm worried about my game here, not him!'
