Team-mate predicts greatest for England skipper

5:58 am on 12 December 2013

England's wicketkeeper Matt Prior predicts his struggling skipper Alastair Cook will end up becoming the country's greatest cricketer.

Cook has been in horrible form during the home and away Ashes series this year, and with his side 2-0 down in the current series, the pressure is building on him to perform in the third test starting on Friday in Perth.

The Perth test will be the 100th for 28-year-old Cook and the home captain Michael Clarke.
