Alastair Cook became the first England batsman to score 10,000 Test runs as his side sealed a series win over Sri Lanka at the Riverside yesterday.

England won the 2nd Test by 9 wickets with more than a day to spare to go an unassailable 2-0 up in the 3 match series.

Set 79 for victory after making Sri Lanka follow-on, England finished on 80 for one.

Left-handed opener Cook was 47 not out and Nick Compton, who hit the winning runs 22 not out.

His innings saw Cook score the five he needed to become just the 12th player of all time to make 10,000 Test runs.
