A.N. Cook

105

vs West IndiesBack to boards

Alastair Cook’s second century at the Home of Cricket came during the first Test of West Indies tour of England in summer 2007.

Beginning to cement his position at the top of the order, Cook showed calmness and superb determination to add his name to the Honours Boards for the second time in two years following his score of 105 versus Pakistan.

His century came off 196 balls with ten fours scored in the process – it was a knock that inspired the decision to name Cook named man-of-the-match.

Four other England batsmen would go on to make an appearance on the Honours Boards during the Test, with the match eventually resulting in a draw.
