The departure of Alastair Cook from the Test cricket arena deserved many things.

A riveting match, a fitting venue, and a big score for the man affectionately known to his teammates as “Chef”. It got all three.

England won by 118 runs, with Jimmy Anderson taking the final wicket to clinch a 4-1 series result and move him ahead of Glenn McGrath in the all-time wickets standings.

It was a story-book series and a story-book summer. We’ll cherish it for years to come.
