Reuters) Top News Alastair Cook does most things in an unusual manner At his wedding he drove his wife Alice off from the church in a huge tractor When he was out of form in 2014 he plunged into farm work waking at 430 am tagging sheep and loading the lorry He soon rebounded with a 290 In his debut hundred against India he batted for six hours and traded by and large in just two shots: the nurdle to square-leg and the cut When he was a boy he was in the choir training for 25 hours a week And now just before a marquee five-Test match series against India he was busy rubbishing his own quote to a magazine about how he might resign from captaincy at the end of the tour Cook’s batting numbers are jaw-dropping: 10688 runs in 135 matches and if he does resign he would be free to pursue Tendulkar’s 15921 runs with greater freedom He might or might not get there but it’s a testament to his character how he has put himself in the hunt in the first place A cursory glance at his batting wouldn’t increase heartbeats nor does it seem so foolproof to warrant such a mind-boggling record It’s not excitement but respect that he produces His is an almost invisible art; his shots are a perfectly rational response to the demands of a delivery There is nothing out of the place He doesn’t flick across the line he doesn’t pull a delivery that isn’t really short he doesn’t cut a delivery that doesn’t have width he doesn’t drive a delivery that isn’t overpitched His art is that of reduction of mistakes; an almost minimalistic approach And that’s what makes Cook special That’s what has made him the England cricketer with most number of hundreds His art lies within his head: The patience determination focus concentration and an incredible self-awareness that stops him from over-extending himself and a great sense of what makes him tick You know what he is going to do you can predict his responses and you are left marvelling how he keeps things simple When things go wrong he can look pretty awful out there The front knee stiffens up wouldn’t bend on his drives and as a course-correction he would try stretch his upper body to make up Obviously it wouldn’t work as well and he would struggle When things go right they all sync-up pretty nicely His batting is a reductive art where clarity simplification and precise craftsmanship champion over flamboyancy Last time he came to India in 2012 for Tests such was his aura that even his mentor Graham Gooch was stunned “Did you see the second over of the last Test in Nagpur” he exclaimed in an interview “The field they set for him” Pragyan Ojha had a deep midwicket long-on a deep square-leg and two near short midwicket region Gooch couldn’t believe what he was seeing “Remember this is the seventh ball of a Test match They had no idea to get him out… it’s a testament to his hard work” Gooch himself of course had his role in Cook’s evolution Back in 2009 Cook took three hour-and-a-half sessions with Gooch each week – ninety minutes for three days a week — to work on changing the back-lift trigger movement He also started to relax off field a lot more In 2014 when he was going through a rough patch he hit the farm to help out his wife “I think farming does help my cricket in the way that I’m not lying on my sofa thinking ‘what’s my technique doing here’” The weaknesses return now and then and makes his achievements all the more great He isn’t as talented as Tendulkar or Ponting he isn’t as solid as Jacques Kallis his batting isn’t as tight as Boycott and yet the runs keep flowing The duel against Ashwin It would be really interesting to see how he handles R Ashwin in this series Last time around he was at ease even coming down the track and lifting the offspinner for sixes down the ground It shouldn’t be that easy this time for all the obvious reasons Just not Ashwin but DRS also comes into play It’s one thing to have it in overseas conditions but in India on turning tracks aided by technology Ashwin and Co would be doubly dangerous “Gone are the days when you use pads You have to use the bat Umpires are now brave to give people out” On match eve though it wasn’t his batting but his captaincy future that held the attention of the press pack So much so that even Michael Atherton and Nasser Hussain landed up in the media interaction and sat at the back As he walked in Cook spotted Atherton and said “You are not going to ask any question are you” Someone else did and Cook was ready with his answer “I was giving an honest answer to a question which is quite hard to answer When someone says how long do you see yourself captaining for you don’t really know do you Because ever since what happened before the World Cup I’ve been very open with you guys and with Andrew Strauss and said I’ll take every series as it comes So when someone asks you how long you’ll go on for I said I don’t know it might be two months which will be the end of this series or it might be six months or two years That’s the answer The headline’s been made It’s not intentional It will be a series by series judgment and always had been” Another journalist from England asked him whether his captaincy would be reviewed by Andrew Strauss director of England cricket and his former captain at the end of this series Suddenly Cook turned coy “I wouldn’t like to answer that” Only time would tell whether that hints at some trouble in paradise or is it just Cook having some fun with the media But in the here and now England’s hopes in the series rest on their captain For all the latest
