Mumbai: Nov 2, 2012
"We are certainly not writing Tendulkar off," Cook said at an event organised by Tata Motors' Jaguar Land Rover and Castrol here.
Tendulkar, in Mumbai colours after three years, came in at no 5 and batted fluently after starting cautiously against a largely inexperienced bowling attack to reach his hundred off 103 balls with 14 fours and 3 sixes.
In India's 4-0 drubbing in England last year, Tendulkar had scored 273 runs in four matches, with the highest score of 91 at the Oval in London.
Cook's teammate spinner Graeme Swann said he would have loved to see former captains Rahul Dravid and Sourav Ganguly in the Indian squad.
"I would love Dravid and Ganguly still to be playing," Swann said.
