1 of 1

Alastair Cook is 10-1 to end his international career with a man-of-the-match performance after announcing on Monday that he will retire after the final Test against India, which starts on Friday.

Cook, England's highest Test runscorer, has scored 12,254 runs and made 32 centuries in 160 Tests for his country at an average of 44.88.

However, the record-breaking opener has struggled for runs in recent time, scoring just 109 runs in seven innings against India this summer and passing 50 in just one of his 16 innings this year.

He is a 11-2 chance to top-score in England's first innings in the final Test. Cook will continue to play county cricket for Essex in 2019.
