    If we count double-hundreds as two, and triple-hundreds as three, the list reads

    Hammond 30 (22)
    Pietersen 25* (22)
    Cook 24 (22)
    Hutton 24 (19)
    Boycott 23 (22)
    Gooch 23 (20)
    Cowdrey 22 (22)
    Strauss 21 (21)
    Barrington 21 (20)

    Possibly on this tour this long standing English record will fall.

    So the next thing is to guess how many Cook will end with?

    Over 40 is my guess.

    If KP gets a hundred later on then it's even, unless one feels like being pedant.

    Cookster still got it first - those of us who failed to consider the batting order in this have no one but ourselves to blame for that

    [GIMH mode] Not sure KP's going to be needed to bat and even if he does as one of these 2 retire hurt, not sure he'll have time to get a ton. [/GIMH mode]

    He'll get between 40-50. He probably won't be considered one of the greats but he should be.
    5-0

    RIP Craig Walsh (Craig) 1985-2012

    Proudly supporting the #2 cricketer of all time.

    You'd think so, even if he doesn't maintain 23 every six and a half years indefinitely.

    I suppose it will be affected by the quality of quicks that he'll have to face over the next 8 to 10 years.

    Should get a mod to change the title of the thread.

    Great achievement for Cooky, proves he's our best bat now too, IMHO. Certainly will massacre all England records.

    Fair play to Captain Cook then. 5 tons in his first 5 tests as captain. Unprecedented, surely?

    No Church fans on CW clearly.

    Thought with a large Aussie demographic someone would've got my allusion.

    - As featured in The Independent.

    "The committee discussed the issue of illegal bowling actions, and believed that there are a number of bowlers currently employing suspect actions in international cricket, and that the ICC's reporting and testing procedures are not adequately scrutinising these bowlers."
    - Even the ICC's own official press release thinks things must change
