ON THIS DAY: 2000th Test, KP’s 200

ON THIS DAY in 2011, the 2000th Test match started between England and India at Lord’s.

The Test was not only the 2000th, but also the 100th between England and India, and Duncan Fletcher’s 100th as a coach.

Add into this, Sachin was still waiting for his elusive 100th 100, and you have a tinderbox of records.

Following a hardworking Pietersen 202, and a second innings Matt Prior century, England crushed India by an impressive  196 runs.
