Cricket: England Skipper Eyes Tough 100 Test

England Cricket Skipper

England Captain Alastair Cook says his 100th Test will be the “toughest” of his career as his country look to turn around the Ashes after two heavy defeats.
Australia will regain the run if they win the third Test, which starts in Perth on Friday at 02:30 GMT.
The tourists, who have won the last three Ashes series, have won just once – in 1978 – in 12 Tests at the ground.
When asked whether his 100th Test would be the toughest of his career, Cook said: “I think it’s a fair point”.
He added: “After what’s happened so far, I’d say so. Your next challenge is always the toughest”.
The only side in Ashes history to come back from 2-0 down to win was the Australian side led by Don Bradman in 1936-37.
It will be a tall order for England to achieve the feat, after the 218-run defeat in Adelaide followed a 381-run loss in the opener in Brisbane.
