Sharjah: England skipper Alastair Cook on Saturday said his spat with famous rival Shane Warne had been blown out of context as he insisted he now has a better relationship with the Aussie great.
Warne irked Cook with critical comments about his captaincy last year when he suggested the Englishman should step down from his role.
Upset at the comments, Cook hit back, saying: "Well something needs to be done because for the three years I've been England captain I have in my eyes been criticised for a hell of a lot of that."
But a courtesy visit by Warne to help England spinner Adil Rashid in the nets seemed to have eased out the tension.
"Me and Warne's so-called spat, what I said was taken a little bit out of context — it was probably directed to the whole media, not just him, and people jumped on that," Cook said.
