The first test of the 2017 Ashes series has just been won by Australia by 10 wickets. Opening the batting for England was Alastair Cook OB (98-03) , who unfortunately did not make many runs. However, Cook has had an extremely successful career, as I’m sure you all know.

There is also a Geography project included with his name bottom right.
