Alastair Cook missed out in the first innings but scored in the second one PTI

England‘s Test skipper, Alastair Cook, registered his 30th Test century in the first session of Day Five of the opening Test versus India. Starting the day at 114 for no loss, England raced to a safe position before Haseeb Hameed fell for 82. Nonetheless, Cook continued his run making spree against India with a fine ton to surge his side’s lead over India on the final day’s play. Cook also broke a lot of records in this way as he went past Don Bradman’s tally of 29 tons in this format. Cook also scored his fifth Test ton versus India on their soil, most by any visiting side’s batsman, while this is his 6th overall hundred against the subcontinental side.

England s first innings was led by Joe Root, Ben Stokes and Moeen Ali s century while captain Cook missed out scoring just 21. He was dropped early on Day One as Ajinkya Rahane missed a regulation catch at slips but still the established batsman could not convert it into anything significant. Nonetheless, Cook has made it up with a fine innings here, albeit some half-chances going his way, in a crunch moment of the match and this will keep him in good strides going ahead into the five-Test series.
