Cook was 'drained' by captaincy before retiring – Strauss

Breaking news

Alastair Cook had become “drained” as England Test captain, says England’s director of cricket Andrew Strauss.

Cook stepped down on Monday after a record 59 matches in charge.

“He was getting drained by the relentlessness of being England captain,” Strauss told the BBC’s sports editor Dan Roan.

Strauss added that vice-captain Joe Root would be a strong candidate to take over but refused “to rule anyone in or out of the role”.
