Alastair Cook recently returned from Bangladesh, captaining England to five successive cricket match victories. After an outstanding cricket performance, he decided to upgrade his Focus ST to the higher powered Focus RS.

2010 also marks the sixth consecutive year of support for Essex County Cricket Club from Ford Motor Company.

Mark Simpson, marketing director, Ford of Britain said: "Ford and the game of cricket both have a strong British heritage, and we're delighted to extend this relationship with the Essex County Cricket Club and its players." England legend and Essex CCC head coach, Graham Gooch, also collected the keys to a brand-new Ford S-MAX. Other high-profile Essex players already drive Fords, including Ravi Bopara who has a Ford Kuga AWD.
