BIO: Alastair Nathan Cook is the captain of the English Test and ODI cricket teams. He is a left-handed opening batsman who plays county cricket for Essex. He has played in a variety of England's youth teams from 2000 until his call up to the Test side in 2006. While touring in the West Indies with the ECB National Academy, Alastair Cook was called up to the England national team in India as a last-minute replacement for Marcus Trescothick and went on to become the youngest Englishman to reach 1,000, 2,000, 3,000, 4,000, 5,000 and 6,000 test runs. Cook had his first taste of international cricket playing the U15 World Cup in 2000. Three years later Cook was called up to the Under 19 England team for their tour of South Africa. Cook was appointed captain of the team the following year, 2004. In 2009 he managed to score two centuries, as well as a score of 95 against Australia to help seal England's first victory against them at Lord's since 1934. He took seven catches in the series, including the final wicket, to win the 2009 Ashes series. After deputising as Test captain in 2010, Cook went on to play another pivotal role in retaining the 2010-11 Ashes series, breaking records by scoring the second highest number of runs in a Test series by an Englishman, including his maiden first-class double-hundred and two further hundreds, and batting for over 35 hours during the series. He was appointed as the captain of the Test team on 29 August 2012. Alastair Cook was appointed Member of the Order of the British Empire in the 2011 Birthday Honours
