(Video) Sir Alastair Cook looks in fine fettle after another vintage hundred

Sir Alastair Cook has looked in wonderful form for the majority of Essex’s Royal London One Day Cup journey to the quarter-finals, and that rhythm was on full display as he hit 110 against Lancashire on Thursday.

The match itself was an extraordinary contest. A win for Lancs would have seen them through to the quarters ahead of Gloucestershire, but the away side smashed 21 off their final over, thanks to three sixes in a row from Simon Harmer, to tie the game and eliminate Lancashire from the competition.
