    Cook spoils his chance to finish on 12345 test runs .

    Cook proving yet again that he's a class act and that England are going to have to dig deep for openers that have the right just to smell his farts.

    I fully agree.

    But are there 2 better English openers out there in county cricket? I've a bad feeling that the only decent English opener is going to be playing for Essex next season.

    Was at the Oval yesterday, gutted not to have been there for Cook's ton. Absolutely overjoyed for him though, complete legend.

    What an ovation for Cook and he deserves every second of it. True legend of the game and we're really going to miss him. Thanks for the memories :D

    Does he need to retire? Looks like hes got a few more test centuries in him yet.

    Can’t see the point in all this nudging and nurdling now. Already got a winning score with 8 wickets left. Surely you start slogging now.

    He was hit whilst batting yesterday then a sharp movement broke it later. Ouch! That will give Jimmy a chance for more wickets.
    Andi.

    I've given up and have started watching last night's NFL.

    Picking Rashid has been a complete waste of time.
