Two of our batsmen are in the record books after the Sri Lanka series.

Kevin Pietersen passed 3000 runs in his 33rd test match, equalling the achievement of Herbert Sutcliffe.

Pietersen is also the only England batsman to reach 1000 runs in the year 2007. He is one of only 3 batsmen to reach this target, and is in 3rd place behind Kallis (1125) and Ganguly (1023), but KP has played more innings than them.

Alastair Cook's century gives him 7 test hundreds before his 23rd birthday (on Christmas Day). He is the only England player to do this. Ahead of him, Bradman and Tendulkar had made 8 centuries at the same age, and Cook equals the achievement of Javed Miandad.
