He has dismissed two centurions in two balls. Cook looks to cut, the ball skids through, and the edge settles in Pant’s gloves. Every single Indian fielder shakes his hand. The last walk back for Cook. A big applause from the stands. Another generous reaction from the crowd. Cook takes one look back, raises his bat, waves it overhead, and walks off. Bairstow pats his back too. What a career. The old batsman has left the crease. And we know that he is done 321/4). He completed his last innings with smashing fourteen boundaries.
