What’s it with number one teams and changing fortunes. Last year, India headed to England with plenty of hopes, and lots of optimism, looking to put the seal of conviction on their newly-acquired number one status.
England’s reliable openers Andrew Strauss and Alastair Cook have created a combined record during the course of their partnership during the hosts’ run chase against the West Indies in the Nottingham Test. Strauss and Cook had taken their overall partnership tally in Tests past 5000 runs! The English pair are only the fifth in Test Cricket to put up a partnership of 5000 runs in Test Cricket.
