    Alastair Cook

    Post  George on Sun 26 Nov 2017, 09:47

    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.

    He now has 11 956 Test runs for England – and is the 6th-highest run scorer in Test matches, having just leapt above Brian Lara.

    Cook is the 6th batsman to reach twelve thousand Test runs. He now has precisely 12 005 of them for England.

    On the first day of the current Test match between New Zealand and England at Auckland, after the hosts won the toss and elected to field, Cook was first to be dismissed, out for a miserable 5. At least it seemed miserable at the time of dismissal – it turned out to be the joint-third highest score of the innings as England were shot out for just 58 (27 for 9 at one stage).

    The big news in the cricketing world at the moment is the ball-tampering incident in the Test match between South Africa and Australia at Cape Town – an incident so serious that even the Australian Prime Minister has had to speak out and condemn it.

    Anyway, Anderson took three wickets in New Zealand’s only innings in their innings & 49-run demolition of England to take his career Test haul to 526.

    Cook, who may be facing imminent chop after making just seven runs in two innings, has plodded along to 12 012 Test runs.
