Bengaluru, September 10: An illustrious career is nearing an end. England’s batting legend and former captain Alastair Cook touched another milestone on Monday scoring a century in his farewell Test match against India at the Oval in London.

The left-handed opener Cook scored 104 not out on his Test debut against the same opponent, India, in Nagpur in 2006.

To enter the record books, Cook is the first Englishman to achieve this rare feat and overall third to do so against India. Surprisingly, in all three instances, the last match was played at Kennington Oval in London.
