A cricket video for Cricket World TV about the latest cricket news as we look back on day two of the third and final Test between England and India in Kolkata.
Excellent Alastair Cook batting saw him became the youngest man to score 7,000 Test runs - beating the record set by Sachin Tendulkar - during the course of the day which closed with England just 100 runs beind, reaching stumps on 216 for one in reply to India's 316.
Cook hit 136 not out, his 23rd Test century, which puts them ahead of all other English players in terms of centuries scored and his fifth century in as many matches as captain is also a record.
MS Dhoni made 52 for India before Monty Panesar and Steven Finn wrapped up the lower order and also in the runs for England was Nick Compton, for whom 57 was a maiden Test half-century and his contribution to an opening partnership with Cook that was worth 165.
