ALASTAIR Cook is available for all Essex fixtures up until the conclusion of the County Championship match against Middlesex on June 29.

The England and Wales Cricket Board have confirmed that Cook will be able to play in both the Royal London One Day Cup and County Championship.

Cook has had a fine start to the season, scoring a century against Somerset in Essex's second match of term.

And he will look to continue his fine form ahead of the England Test summer, starting against Gloucestershire tomorrow.
