Alastair Cook ends England career with century
24th December 2018

It all started with a hundred against India – and so it ended.

Alastair Cook earned the perfect finish to his stellar England career this summer, signing off in grand style at the Oval by scoring a century in his 161st and final match.

In ‘Cook’s Fairytale Finish’, which you can watch on Sky Sports Cricket this Christmas, relive those glorious scenes as Cook’s knock adds the finishing gloss to England’s 4-1 series win against India.

Cook played more Tests than any other Englishman, scored more runs, held the most catches and won the most Test caps as an England captain.

His epic contribution to cricket included Ashes successes and no less than 33 Test centuries – the last of which you can savour again in our show, which also features contributions from Graham Gooch in The Zone alongside Nasser Hussain, analysis from our pundits and post-play interviews with Cook himself.

This is the final chapter in the story of England’s most prolific run-scorer – and it is a compelling watch.

Watch Cook’s Fairytale Finish on Sky Sports Cricket from 9am on Christmas Day – and throughout the festive season.
