161 - If Cook plays in the fifth and final Test against India, he will finish his career with 161 Test caps, more than any other England player in history.

12,254 - Test runs, sixth in the all-time world list headed by India's Sachin Tendulkar with 15,921. Cook will need 146 at The Oval to move alongside Sri Lanka's Kumar Sangakkara for fifth place.

44.88 - His Test batting average going into his final game.

294 - His career-high score, against India at Edgbaston in 2011 when England went to No. 1 in the world Test rankings. Typically, Cook was more concerned afterwards with the six runs he did not score rather than all the ones he did.

32 - Test centuries, a record for an Englishman. Five of those are double-hundreds, including three of his last five tons.

2 - The number of innings he needed to record his first Test hundred. He made an unbeaten 104 in the second innings of his debut Test against India in Nagpur - after 60 at his first attempt.

6,000 - His journey in miles, flying over three continents from an A tour in the Caribbean at 24 hours' notice to fill in as an emergency replacement batsman in that first Test.

35 - The number of innings without a century during Cook's uncharacteristic drought between May 2013 and March 2015.

26,086 - The number of balls Cook has faced in Test cricket since his debut, more than anyone else. Hashim Amla is second on 17,806, while Ian Bell is the Englishman with the second highest total (14,165). 

4 - Cook's Ashes series wins, including two as captain.

766 - runs scored in the 2010-11 Ashes series, when England won 3-1 in Australia - the Three Lions' only series win Down Under since the 1986-87 series.

1 - The number of Test wickets that Alastair Cook picked up with the ball. The 'seamer' had India's Ishant Sharma caught behind by Matt Prior back in 2014.
