Cook Strikes Australia With Double Ton – Ashes 2017 4th Test in Melbourne

It has the fans on their feet.  A great achievement from the amazing Alastair Cook.  The whole of the stadium was standing to applaud the cricketer.

The noise waved across the players as Cook thanked the crowd.

BBC:

Alastair Cook made the highest score by a visiting batsman at the MCG to give England firm control of the Boxing Day Test.

Cook piled on 244 not out, beating the 208 of West Indies legend Sir Viv Richards, as the tourists punished Australia on the third evening of the fourth Ashes Test.

At 307-6, England were in danger of surrendering the initiative, but Cook added 59 with Chris Woakes (26), before a riotous partnership of 100 with Stuart Broad, who swung his way to 56.

In the end, Cook’s third-highest Test score had led England to 491-9, a lead of 164.

Comments:

Excellent achievement in the 4th Test. It has revived the status of the England team. Cook has been described as Superb, a punisher.

He has been on the field for every minute of the first three days in Melbourne
