    Also saw something crazy that when Cook and Anderson batted together it was the first time the leading English Test run-scorer and wicket-taker batted together since the 2nd test in history.

    Getting into totally pointless stat territory here, but apparently in Cook's previous ten innings he scored the lowest aggregate of anyone's ten innings prior to carrying their bat. And it's also the highest individual overnight score not to be added to, though of course that wasn't his fault here.

    Smith becomes the 3rd fastest to 23 centuries, taking 110 innings. Only behind Bradman (59!) and Gavaskar 109. To get to 24 2nd fastest he needs a century within his next 14 innings.

    If you rank Test batsmen by their 5th highest innings, Cook (235) is 3rd behind Bradman (254) and Jayawardene (237).
    If you rank Test batsmen by their 6th highest innings, Cook drops to 15th.

    Bloody Bradman still dominating the records.

    It's incredible to think that he was better than Smith is currently by a good 33%. Smith is averaging 75 in recent years and Bradman averaged 100 over his career. Un freaking believable.

    Steve Smith has just climbed to clear all-time second place in the ICC batting rankings. Previously he was tied with Hutton on 945, now he's on 947. Bradman still up front with 961.

    Won't be long before some Afghan takes all his records

    Just ftr, my post you quoted there was actually incorrect and Smith is actually the 2nd batsman to do that, after Matthew Hayden.

    He's also joined Ponting as the only batsman to score 6 centuries in a calendar year more than once

    He is the first batsman to score 1000 runs in 4 consecutive years averaging 70+ each year iirc.

    Sorry for the double post not really a milestone but an interesting tidbit, Smith currently scores centuries at the third highest rate in history behind Bradman and Headley.

    In case anybody didn't realise Smith equalled Sobers as 2nd fastest to 6000 runs. He has 19 innings to beat Hammond to 7000.
