    In the Leeds Test Alastair Cook went past Alan Borders record of consecutive test matches played:

    Alastair Cook - 154
    Alan Border - 153
    Mark Waugh - 107
    Sunil Gavaskar - 106
    Brendan McCullum - 101
    AB DeVilliers - 98
    Adam Gilchrist - 96

    Incredible to play so many without being dropped or injured

    Next highest Englishmen were Alan Knott/Ian Botham in 23rd on 65
