    Farewell ton helps Alastair Cook sign off with top-ten spot

    Alastair Cook, out of form before the final Test against India, hit 71 and 147 to finish off his career as the 10th-ranked batsman in Test cricket.

    Cook, whose 12,472 runs in 161 matches made him the fifth-most prolific run-scorer in Test history – behind Sachin Tendulkar, Ricky Ponting, Jacques Kallis and Rahul Dravid – rose 11 spots in the latest MRF Tyres ICC Test Player Rankings for batsmen.

    This after he had slipped following scores of 13, 0, 21, 29, 17, 17 and 12 in the first four Tests.

    Kohli remains the No.1 Test batsman, while Root has taken back the fourth spot Kohli remains the No.1 Test batsman, while Root has taken back the fourth spot
    It was a memorable swansong for Cook, whose 218 runs in England’s 118-run win made him the Player of the Match as well, and he achieved the rare distinction of scoring a century in his debut as well as farewell Test.

    In a five-Test series with only eight hundreds, four centuries came in the teams' second innings of the final Test, with tons from Cook, Joe Root (125), KL Rahul (149) and Rishabh Pant (114).

    Rahul finally came good in the series, his 149 at The Oval helping him rise 16 spots Rahul finally came good in the series, his 149 at The Oval helping him rise 16 spots
    Root gained one spot to move to No.4 even as Kohli, who ended a prolific series with a duck, remains the No.1 batsman. Rahul gained 16 spots to reach No.19, while Pant, playing his third Test, went up 63 positions to get to No.111 with a career-high 285 points.

    Anderson, who surpassed Glenn McGrath's tally to become the most successful fast bowler in Test history, retained the No.1 spot Anderson, who surpassed Glenn McGrath's tally to become the most successful fast bowler in Test history, retained the No.1 spot
    On to the bowlers then, and there was no displacing James Anderson from the top spot as his five wickets for the match helped him remain No.1.

    Anderson, who went past Glenn McGrath’s mark of 563 Test wickets to become the most prolific Test wicket-taker among fast bowlers, reached 899 points by the end of the series. That’s just four off his all-time high of 903, and 17 more than No.2 Kagiso Rabada of South Africa.

    Going out on top. Credit to him. He could have easily played until the ashes in 2019. But he said lost the edge so rather than be selfish he moved on to avoid becoming a burden on the team.

    Farewell Cookie. Enjoy your retirement.

    Quite opposite of what the legends from India and Pakistan do. They will not go until they are kicked out.
