Alastair Cook scored a combined 20 runs in the two Tests before this match. It seemed that the Indians had neutralized the biggest threat from England.
Cook has just scored an epic 266 runs in Test no. 2003 and he's still not out! By Sunday, England will be ranked as the number one team in Test cricket. After crushing the Australians in the last Ashes series, this achievement doesn't come as a surprise.
The poor fellow fell painfully short of a triple-century. No matter. India are not going to dig themselves out from under the pile of runs that England have so patiently accumulated.
What a sorry contrast it makes with Sehwag. He'll want to forget this match even before it's over.
