Cook rejoins Eng camp
England Test captain Alastair Cook rejoined the England camp in Chittagong yesterday following the birth of his second child. According to BCB officials, Cook reached the port city at around 4 pm.
The opening batsman had earlier arrived in Bangladesh for a short stint in a bid to acclimitise to the conditions here. He trained for a few days and then returned home to attend the birth of his daughter.
As a result of his hectic schedule Cook couldn't take part in either of the two-day practice matches in Chittagong. It gave England a chance to have a look at a potential Test partner for Cook in the absence of Alex Hales.
Unlike a number of other England players, the 31-year-old boasts a good record in Asia with eight centuries and an astounding batting average above 60. He scored his first Ton on his Test debut in India a decade ago.
