Alastair Cook bowed out of Test cricket on September 11 2018 at the Oval when England beat India by 118 runs in a match that took on the air of a tribute to the most prolific English batsman of all-time.

Joe Root won the toss and sent Cook in as the opening act of his own international swansong and he was greeted by a guard of honour.

Cook’s century on Monday was the highlight but India made sure the series did not end in anti-climax thanks to an audacious chase of 464 for victory.
