Alastair Cook is an English cricketer and captain of the England national cricket team.[2] He has scored centuries (100 or more runs in a single innings) in Test and One Day International (ODI) matches on 25 and 5 occasions respectively.[3][4] As of 2013, he has played 97 Tests and 64 ODIs for England, scoring 7,801 and 2,681 runs respectively. He is the youngest batsman to score 7,000 or more runs in Test cricket.[2][5] Cook was appointed a Member of the Order of the British Empire (MBE) in the 2011 Birthday Honours.[6] In the same year, the International Cricket Council (ICC) selected him their Test Player of the Year.[7] Wisden named him as one of their cricketers of the year in 2012.[8]

In 2006, Cook became the sixteenth English cricketer to score a century on debut,[9] against India at the Vidarbha Cricket Association Ground, Nagpur.[10] His score of 294, against the same team at the Edgbaston Cricket Ground, Birmingham, in 2011, is the sixth highest total by an English batsman in Test cricket.[11] Cook has scored Test centuries at 20 cricket grounds, including 13 at venues outside England.[12][13] He has scored centuries against seven different opponents, and is most successful against India, making five against them. As of May 2013, he is fifteenth overall among all-time Test century-makers,[14] and top of the equivalent list for England.[15]

Cook made his ODI debut in 2006 against Sri Lanka at Old Trafford, Manchester.[16] His first century came against India at the Rose Bowl, Southampton, in August 2007.[17] His highest score in the format is 137 runs against Pakistan at the Sheikh Zayed Stadium, Abu Dhabi, in 2011.[4] Cook played four Twenty20 International (T20I) matches between 2007 and 2009, without scoring a century.[18] His highest score in T20Is is 26.[2]
