England batting star Alastair Cook, joins us live today on independent.co.uk for a webchat to discuss England's phenomenal Ashes victory and answer your questions.

Show date: 14th January 2011

Show time: 16:00

Only one Englishman has ever scored more runs in an Ashes series than Alastair Cook. During his record-breaking 36 hours at the crease in Australia he piled up a massive 766 runs, averaging over 120 an innings.



Yet at the start of the series, Cook’s place was being questioned after he struggled against Pakistan in the summer. However, those that stood by him have been rewarded, as Cook is now ‘Man of the Series’, anchoring England to their 3-1 series win.



Despite only being 26, he has already scored 5,000 Test runs and is the second youngest ever in the world to do so after India’s legendary Sachin Tendulkar. With his 235 not out in Brisbane, 148 in Adelaide and 189 in last week’s series clinching victory in Sydney, he has now scored 16 Test hundreds.

Submit questions before the show and to watch it live from 4pm.
