Another England Test, another Alastair Cook milestone. Having passed Alec Stewarts England record of 133 Test appearances in the victory over Bangladesh in the first Test in Chittagong, Cook is now set to become Englands most capped captain of all time when he skippers the team against India in the first Test, on Wednesday.Cook moved level with Michael Atherton when he led his side out for the 54th time in the second Test in Dhaka but come Wednesday will top the list. There have been plenty of highs, and lows, during his spell as skipper. Click on the video above to see just a few, as we also chart them below...Bangladesh beginnings Cook celebrates after scoring a century against Bangladesh during his first Test as captain Its somewhat fitting that Cook equalled Athertons record where it all started, in Bangladesh. Though it was in Chittagong, and not Dhaka, where Cook became Englands 79th Test captain, covering for Andrew Strauss as he was rested at the time.He couldnt have wished for a better beginning either, smashing 173 against his hapless hosts to become only the fifth England batsman to score a hundred in his first game as skipper.Cook would lead his charges to a 181-run victory in that first Test in 2010 - Graeme Swann taking 10 wickets - before cracking another century in the second Test, as a nine-wicket win in Dhaka secured a 2-0 series triumph.Early success as skipper Cook kisses the urn after winning his first Ashes series as captain in 2013 Cook would have to wait over two years till next tasked with the Test captaincy, permanently taking over from Strauss for the tour of India. It represented a bit of a baptism of fire for Cook, with England having relinquished the No 1 Test ranking to South Africa earlier that summer amid rumours of ructions in the dressing room that led to Kevin Pietersens exile from the team for texts exchanged with the opposition.Cook brought KP back into the team for the India tour and would lead his team to a staggering 2-1 triumph on the sub-continent, made all the more remarkable by the fact that England were trounced by nine wickets in the first Test in Ahmedabad; albeit Cook scoring a century. Hed also tonk tons in the second and third Test wins.The Ashes (preceded by home and away series against New Zealand) were the next test, but one Cook passed with flying colours, leading England to a 3-0 series success. The margin of Englands win would somewhat flatter them, however, as following a 347-run drubbing in the second Test at Lords, a revitalised Australia were much more competitive, hinting of what was to come.Whitewashed in Aus Mitchell Johnson (L) celebrates the wicket of Cook, one of his 37 victims in the 5-0 Ashes whitewash in 2013/14 And what was to come was an utterly emphatic 5-0 series defeat in the return Ashes series in Australia later that winter, where a broken and battered England were routinely bounced out by Mitchell Johnson at the peak of his pacey powers.England lost Jonathan Trott - a key component of their top order for the last four years - after the first Test defeat in Brisbane to a stress-related condition, while Swann retired, having been troubled by an elbow injury, with the series already lost following defeat in the third Test in Perth.Desperately searching for answers, England used 19 players during the five-Test tour, of which the resounding find was a certain Ben Stokes, who struck a first Test ton on a hideously worn Perth pitch in only his second game.Cook defies doubters Cook is warmly applauded off the field at The Rose Bowl despite falling short of a century against India in 2014 There was worse still for Cook after the drubbing down under. A devastating defeat to Sri Lanka at Leeds in 2014 off the penultimate ball of the game that saw England lose the series, and an embarrassing 95-run second Test loss to India on a green-top at Lords perfectly catered for home advantage, had many calling for him to step down as skipper.They made a compelling case, as coupled with those heart-breaking defeats was that Cook couldnt buy a run - no Test tons for 14 matches, averaging 23.63. The captain, at his lowest ebb, himself admitted: No-one has a divine right to captain the side, or play in the side if theyre not performing.The tide began to turn though in the third Test at The Rose Bowl. After a painstaking 231-ball stay at the crease, Cook agonisingly fell five runs short of that long-awaited century. Regardless, the crowd appreciating the courage of a man under such pressure gave him a rousing reception from the crease. Cook would score an unbeaten 70 in the second innings, lead his side to a 3-1 series win, and would average 58.30, scoring three tons, in his next 14 Tests.Ashes redemption Cook celebrates winning back the Ashes urn in The Oval dressing room after a 3-2 win over Australia in 2015 599 days after handing the urn over to Australia, Cook has his redemption, said Sky Sports Nasser Hussain when calling Englands Ashes-winning moment in 2015, and how right he was too. 18 months on from his nadir as England captain at the hands of the Aussies, Cook was instrumental in wrestling the Ashes back.Not necessarily through sheer weight of runs - Cook hit just the two fifties across his nine innings in the series, averaging 36.66 - but through innovative captaincy, and impeccable leadership, specifically in rallying England from a 405-run thrashing at Lords that levelled the series after two Tests.Stuart Broads stunning 8-15 to bowl Australia out for just 60 on the first morning of the fourth Test at Trent Bridge all but ended the contest, though Cook would have to wait till The Oval to get his mitts on the urn, his redemption confirmed with a 3-2 series win.Watch the first Test between India and England from 3.30am on Wednesday, live on Sky Sports 2 HD.
