The cricket hunk scores a century in style

Watch out David Beckham – hot cricketer Alastair Cook is set to become sport’s new pin-up.

The batsman, 26, is likely to be named player of the series after scoring a century during the fifth Test against Australia in Sydney.

An early contender for Now’s Hot Men of 2011, vice-captain Alastair has become the second-highest English run-scorer in an Ashes series, and all but secured England‘s first series win down under in 24 years.

With his dark looks and winning smile, we’ll be sure to tune in next time he’s up to bat.
