London:Dream debut boy Alastair Cook said he would look out in Mohali for the besotted Nagpur maiden who had 'proposed' him to marry her Recalling the ''funny moment'', the 22-year-old England opener wrote in the Daily Telegraph today that Pakistani umpire Aleem Dar pointed out the placard by a girl in the crowd that read ''Marry Me Alastair''.

''I'll have to keep an eye out for her in the next Test,'' wrote Cook in a lighter vein.

Cook, who scored 60 and 104 in his debut Test, said the dream moments of hitting his maiden Test hundred in debut have yet to sink in.

''I'll never forget that moment on Saturday when the ball crossed the boundary rope to bring up my century. I found it hard to believe that it was really happening, that I had reached three figures for England, and that no one could take it away from me.

I would have liked to have pressed the pause button and stayed in that instant for a while.'' The Essex batsman considered Paul Collingwood's hundred and Monty Panesar's dismissal of Sachin Tendulkar, besides his hundred as fairytale moments of the Nagpur Test.

Interestingly, Cook said his parents complained for lack of sleep over phone as they had to wake up at 4.30am in England to watch him play on the television.

He said they won't fly down in India to watch him play here.

Rather, they were supposed to be to Barbados to watch him play there for the England 'A' team. Cook was at Barbados 10 days back doing England 'A' duties, before he was called to join the injury-depleted senior squad.
