Alastair Cook seems to have come into the Ashes series with a plan that he would not let the Australian spinner Nathan Lyon settle down when he is at the crease.
Cook generally is not that kind of player. He grinds his way to big scores, but, yesterday on the opening day of the ongoing Ashes series, as soon as Lyon came into the attack, the English captain was on the move.
He started doing a lot of things to try and put Lyon off his line and length, but, that ended up becoming the reason of his own downfall.
He misjudged the length of a delivery and was caught behind.
