When Alastair Cook resigned as England's Test captain in the aftermath of a 4-0 trouncing by India in 2016, he ended a five-year tenure that had established him as a leader of great integrity and empathy without ever managing to achieve lasting accolades as one of the finest skippers of the age. Cook's leadership was, in many ways, like his record-breaking batting: unyielding, determined and deliberate, but lacking the spark of tactical genius to win him ultimate approval. But his rock-like commitment to the cause, and high personal standards, were cause for considerable respect and gratitude. That was enough for Andrew Strauss, his predecessor as England captain and by then England's managing director, to judge that he "deserves to be looked upon as one of England's great captains."
