Following Sri Lanka’s resurgence in their second innings, England had to bat again. Having been sat on 9,995 Test runs since his early dismissal in the first innings, Cook needed just 5 runs to pass the historic milestone.

He finally reached the milestone with a typically impeccable leg-side flick off the bowling of Nuwan Pradeep for four.

The England captain went on to score 47* as his side comfortably beat Sri Lanka by 9 wickets.
