Victor Chandler have opened a market on who will be the 1st English batsman to score 23 Test centuries and make Alastair Cook their 5/4 favourite.
 
VC cricket betting spokesperson Charlie McCann said: "Cook now has 19 Test hundreds and, given he doesn’t turn 27 until Christmas Day, we think it is only a matter of time before he beats Wally Hammond’s English record of 22 Test Tons.

"Skipper Andrew Strauss also has 19 Test hundreds and KP 18 and one of them will surely beat the Boycott/Hammond record sooner rather than later; but which one will do it first?"
