Alastair Cook has hinted he may step down as England’s Test captain after their five-match series in India that begins on Wednesday.
“Deep down I don’t know how much longer I am going to carry on. It could be two months, it could be a year,” the 31-year-old told the October issue of Cricketer magazine.
“It makes me feel very satisfied that I’ve been able to do it for a long period of time and I’ve had a really good crack at it.”
Cook, who will surpass Michael Atherton’s England record of 54 matches as Test skipper after the first match in India, replaced Andrew Strauss as skipper in 2012.
He has led England to 24 Tests victories, including a 2-1 series win over India on the subcontinent in 2012.

Cook, who has scored 10,688 runs at an average of just below 47 in 135 Tests, with 29 centuries, said he would keep on playing for the foreseeable future.
“I do look forward to the day when hopefully I can play a Test match as just a batter, there’s no doubt about that,” the left-handed opening batsman added.
“If that happens, I’m going to really enjoy standing at first slip and being the bloke who makes suggestions to whoever’s in charge and not being the bloke who has to make the final decision.”
