Profile

With textbook technique and a temperament to match, Stephen Cook seemed an obvious candidate for international honours from an early age but ended up being a late bloomer, much like his father Jimmy. Cook was schooled at the King Edward VII School, two years below Graeme Smith and the pair occasionally opened the batting together. While Smith was aggressive and unorthodox in his approach, Cook was as correct as they come, with a serene cover drive and a confident pull shot in his repertoire.
