Test Match #2204: England vs Sri Lanka
Before the start of the series Alastair Cook needed 36 runs to become the first Englishman to reach the 10,000 career Test runs mark. However this seems to have become a big bugbear for him as he has fallen short twice in the pursuit. In the 2nd Test of the series, he has become the 3rd batsmen to be dismissed in the nervous 9990s in Test tally.
Previous members of the nervous 9990s club - Lara & Jayawardene. (Elite company).
So the wait becomes longer for Cook.
