Azharuddin welcome ‘Alastair Cook’

Former India captain Mohammad Azharuddin is “more than happy” to welcome Alastair Cook to the elite company of batsmen who scored a Test ton in their first and final matches.

“I am very happy for him,” said Azhar, the only Indian batsman on the hallowed list. “It is never easy to score a century on both occasions. The batsman on his debut Test is always under pressure. He is a new player and there is a lot of expectations from his family members, friends and fans.”

According to Azhar, Cook’s decision on retirement must be respected. “If the player feels it is enough then he should leave the game at the right time,” he said.
