4 - The number of double-centuries for Alastair Cook - the joint-second most among England players. Only Wally Hammond (seven) has more double-centuries for England; Len Hutton also hit four double-tons.

258.75 - The average of Cook scores when he goes past 200. His average runs per innings in 200-plus scores is third-highest among 24 players with four or more double-hundreds. Only Virender Sehwag (262.83) and Brian Lara (259.89) have higher runs per innings.

3 - The number of openers to have more double-centuries than Cook's four. Marvan Atapattu and Sehwag lead the list with six double-hundreds followed by Graeme Smith with five. Gordon Greenidge and Hutton also scored four doubles at opener.

1990 - The last time an England opener scored a double-century in the first innings of a Test, before Cook in this match. Graham Gooch scored 333 against India at Lord's then. Overall, this is only the sixth such double-century for England openers. The last time any opener scored a double-century in the first innings of a Test in England was Smith's 277 at Edgbaston in 2003.

89.39 - Cook's strike rate against Alzarri Joseph, having scored 59 runs off 66 balls. This is his highest strike rate against any bowler facing 50 or more balls in an innings. His previous highest such strike rate was 84.74 against Mitchell Johnson in his innings of 189 at the SCG in 2010-11 Ashes.

1974 - The last time an England player made a higher score against West Indies than Cook's 243 - the 262 not out by Dennis Amiss in Kingston. Cook's is the fifth-highest individual score for England against West Indies.

1 - Only once Cook has had a higher strike rate in his ten 150-plus scores: 61.63 in his 173 in Chittagong in 2010. Overall, this century at strike rate of 59.70 is Cook's sixth-highest among his 31 centuries.
