SIR ALASTAIR COOK is reportedly set to call his professional cricket career to an end.
The England legend is set to retire at the end of the county cricket season next week.
Cook, 38, will still be hoping to win one more title with Essex before he packs his bat away for good.
According to the Daily Mail, the former England Test captain could announce the decision as early as Friday.
The batter will not be leaving cricket for good as he will continue to work in the pundit side of the sport.
Cook has already been working with Test Match Special on the BBC.
During his career, he twice won the Ashes against Australia as England captain and became the country’s record run-scorer.
