Former England players Moeen Ali, Alastair Cook engage on-air sparring over captaincy style

Joe
Root
is
currently
the
Test
captain
of
England
while
Cook
retired
after
the
series
against
India
in
2018.
Moeen
too
has
retired
from
Test
cricket
last
year
to
concentrate
more
on
the
white
ball
formats.

Cook
has
played
161
Tests
for
England
and
is
the
leading
run-scorer
for
them
with
12472
runs
and
made
33
hundreds.
Moeen
played
64
Tests
for
England
and
made
2914
runs
with
5
hundreds
and
also
picked
up
195
wickets.

“Cooky
would
never
give
me
throw
downs.
Rooty
has
a
bit
more
of,
I
would
say,
an
emotional
attachment
with
the
players.
He
probably
spends
a
bit
more
time
with
the
players,”
Moeen
said
during
a
chat
at
the
BT
Sport.

Cook
responded
in
jest:
“Are
you
just
criticizing
my
captaincy?”

“I
am
a
little
bit,
yeah,”
said
Moeen.

Following
is
the
full
conversation:


Moeen:

“They’re
both
very
different.
I
did
do
better
with
the
bat
under
Cooky
but
with
the
ball
I
was
better
with
Rooty.”


Cook:

“I
was
going
to
say,
I
never
dropped
Mo.
So
you
might
criticize
me,
but
I
never
dropped
you.
How
many
times
did
Rooty
drop
you?”


Moeen:

“That’s
true,
but
he
(Cook)
also
batted
me
from
one
to
nine
in
my
first
year
of
international
cricket.”


Cook:

“I
was
giving
him
a
chance.
I
couldn’t
work
out
whether
he
was
a
tailender
or
an
opening
batsman,
so
I
tried
to
find
the
perfect
role
for
him.”


Moeen:

“To
go
back
to
my
point,
Rooty
was
a
little
bit
more
involved
with
the
players,
in
my
opinion.
Not
that
Cooky
didn’t
care,
but
I
think
Rooty
is
a
bit
more
arm-over-the-shoulder
kind
of
guy.”


Cook:

“I’m
not
sure
how
to
take
this
anymore.
I’ve
just
come
back
from
a
nice
holiday
and
I’ve
walked
straight
into
Moeen
Ali
off
his
long
run.”
