Essex Man hammers Aussies — Gabba Gabba hey!

Just to complete Essex's annus mirabilis, Essex cricketer Alastair Cook has scored a record-breaking 235 not out at the Gabba in Brisbane. Even Don Bradman's knock of 226 has fallen to a man who once played club cricket for Maldon...

Possibly inspired by the success of The Only Way Is Essex and Mark and Kirk's epic boxing bout, Cook's innings has caused much soul-searching in the Aussie media and the Sydney Morning Herald asked "Has anyone stopped to consider that our cricket side — ahem — isn't particularly good?"

Nice one, Cooky. They'll be dancing in the tanning salons of Chelmsford tonight...
