Alastair Cook's appetite for runs

Shortly after reaching his hundred, Alastair Cook received a straight delivery and played yet another forward defensive stroke. We liked that.

It said that just because England were 400 ahead and he had his hundred, there were still days to go in this match, so Ali Cook was just going to carry on doing what he'd been doing all day: Staying in and scoring the odd run.

We admire professionalism. But only in others.
