    The former England cricket captain Alastair Cook made a miserable total of just 9 runs (2 in the first innings and 7 in the second) as England are a whisker away from losing to Australia in the current Ashes Test match at Brisbane.


    He has now made a total of 11 638 Test runs for England.

    In that Test match the England fast bowler Jimmy Anderson took two wickets in the Australia first innings and none in the second – not surprising as the hosts won the match by 10 wickets.

    He has now taken 508 Test wickets for England.
