England captain Alastair Cook has the potential to match Sachin Tendulkar's run-scoring feats, according to batting coach Graham Gooch.

Cook,  became the youngest player to reach 7,000 Test runs and England's most prolific centurion with his 23rd as England beat India in Kolkata.

India's Tendulkar, has a record 15,643 Test runs and 51 hundreds.

Cook scored superb hundreds in Mumbai and Kolkata to help England take a 2-1 lead over India with one match to play, simultaneously extending his record of having recorded a century in each of his first five Tests as captain.
