Cover drives hit different when coming off the blades of left-handers. There’s a concoction of elegance and flair that enchants the eye as the ball beats the man at mind-off and cruises towards the fence. Sir Alastair Cook has been a proud exponent of the shot and the English legend is showing no signs of rust as he dispatches a tracer bullet towards the rope in the LV County Championship. The gunshot crack of leather on willow reverberated across the park.
A classic Cook shot ðŸ‘¨ðŸ³
The former England captain is nearing a century!
