Alastair Cook, England's leading test run-scorer, will retire from international cricket after this week's fifth test against India, the 33-year-old said Monday. The left-handed opening batsman, who captained England in 59 tests, admitted there was "nothing left in the tank" after enduring a poor run of form in nine tests this year in which he has averaged 18.62 runs compared with a career average of 44.88 .Since making a century on his test debut against India in 2006, Cook has become England's leading scorer in the longest form of the game and is the sixth highest scorer in five-day cricket with 12,254 runs, including 32 centuries.
