 “It is just weird when you are told you have just to walk and kneel, that you should get so nervous,” Cook said after receiving the honor according to espncricinfo.com.

 “I have played cricket in front of many thousands and done okay but you get just as nervous just walking and kneeling, which is very strange.”

The Performance

The left-hander who made his international debut in 2006 is the highest run scorer for England in Test Cricket. He played his last Test match against India in 2018 at the Oval and ended his career with 12472 runs in the longest format of the game.
