Another England Test, another Alastair Cook milestone. Throwback Redskins Jerseys . 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.

Derrius Guice Stitched Jersey . -- Jonathan Drouin gave Halifax the boost it needed to edge host Sherbrooke Phoenix 3-2 in a shootout in Quebec Major Junior Hockey League action. http://www.officialredskinsnflauthenticshop.com/ . Mickelson barely made the cut but had the best round of the day with nine birdies and an eagle coupled with two bogeys to sit two shots behind leader Craig Lee of Scotland. Lee shot a 69 for a 12-under 204 total. "I just love the fact I am in contention and have an opportunity in my first tournament of the year here in Abu Dhabi," Mickelson said. TORONTO -- By the time Edwin Encarnacion took his curtain call in the seventh inning, R.A. Dickeys rough night was forgotten. The Toronto Blue Jays starting pitcher watched as the lineup put on a show and was glad he didnt cost his team the game. It didnt matter that Dickey struggled because Encarnacion and Co. couldnt stop hitting. Encarnacion became the first Toronto player in 20 years to hit two home runs in the same inning as he led the way for the Blue Jays 12-6 rout of the Houston Astros on Friday night at Rogers Centre. It marked Torontos first consecutive victories since its 11-game winning streak last month. "I picked a good night to be very mediocre, thats for sure," said Dickey, who allowed five earned runs on seven hits in six innings. "But we had a great offensive night. I mean this night should definitely be about Edwin and what he did. I mean, how momentous. To get to see something like thats pretty neat." Encarnacion led off the seventh with a solo home run off Astros reliever Paul Clemens. After his teammates ensured him another at-bat, the designated hitter connected on almost the same swing, this time off Hector Ambriz for a grand slam. "Im just thinking, Put the ball in play, so I put it in play, I got a homer," Encarnacion said. "And then the second homer in the same inning, I dont know how to homer (twice) in one inning. I was enjoying the game with my guys, enjoying the game, we were laughing a little, happy because we were on the top of the game. I was so proud when they told me -- somebody I dont remember -- I had two homers in one inning." The last Blue Jay to hit two home runs in one inning was Joe Carter, who completed that feat on Oct. 3, 1993. "To get to see something that you only see once every 20 years is like seeing a comet," Dickey said. "Its pretty cool." Encarnacion had a double earlier to make it a 3-for-4 night that hell never forget because of his place in the record books. "I dont think you can get any better than that," manager John Gibbons said. "Hes had another great year, he really has. You look, hes been steady all year. Early on, he hit into a lot of tough luck early in the season, but I think hes been as steady, probably, as anybody in baseball." Beyond Encarnacion, the Blue Jays offence was steady Friday night against an opponent that has given up the most runs of any team in the majors. They started knocking around starter Jordan Lyles and continued to torment a young bullpen. Seven different Toronto batters had at least one RBI, and every starter except Jose Bauutista and Josh Thole picked up at least a hit. Greg Stroman Stitched Jersey. . It was the kind of collective performance that Mark DeRosa said after a players-only meeting days earlier was necessary. "They all pitched in," Gibbons said. "Thats hard to do, and thats rare where everybody produces like that. But good teams, teams that win, everybodys got to pitch in one way or the other. Youre going to run into stretches where some guys are cold and somebody else has got to pick you up, and then those guys tail off, the other guys usually come back. Nights where everybodys clicking, you get the big, big nights." Friday night became big in the seventh-inning. The Blue Jays trailed 6-4 at the time but made up that deficit quickly with back-to-back homers from Encarnacion and first baseman Adam Lind. Second baseman Maicer Izturis drove in Colby Ramsus -- the go-ahead run -- with a double, and later a bases-loaded walk by Wesley Wright kept things going. Encarnacion then provided the fireworks with his grand slam to cap off the eight-run inning. "It did unravel rather quickly," Astros manager Bo Porter said. "They put some good swings on some pitches and you look up and its an eight-spot." Encarnacion wasnt sure his second home run was gone, but it wasnt surprising to him that he managed some good swings. "Ive been working with my timing the last couple days," he said. "I got my timing back, so I was seeing the ball good." Astros hitters were seeing the ball well, too, off Dickey. The knuckleballer saw his home ERA rise to 5.97, and he gave up his 18th home run of the season at Rogers Centre. "I didnt make many mistakes, but every one I made tonight got hit. Every one," Dickey said. "I did a lot of good things tonight and Im always looking for things for improvement." Improvement could take time as Dickey spends his remaining home starts trying to figure out how to hone his pitching in a hitters park. It played every bit as small Friday night as balls were flying all over the field. The Blue Jays tied a franchise record for extra-base hits with 12. "We really came to life late to take the lead and open it up," Gibbons said. "Its a great place to hit, it really is. We swung it tonight." NOTES -- Lawrie played the entire game at third base after both he and Izturis were listed there and at second on the lineup card. Gibbons said he didnt know who marked 4 and 5 on the card but repeated that he saw Lawrie as a third baseman. ... Astros right fielder J.D. Martinez left the game with a left wrist injury.
