Alastair Cook has vowed to stay on as England captain, despite his team slipping to yet another defeat against India at Lord's.

The Essex star has been heavily criticised by pundits and fans alike following a disastrous run of ten tests without a win.

England's last ten test results

  • England v Australia (The Oval) - Match drawn (Aug 13)
  • Australia v England (Brisbane) - Australia won by 381 runs (Nov 13)
  • Australia v England (Adelaide) - Australia won by 218 runs (Dec 13)
  • Australia v England (Perth) - Australia won by 150 runs (Dec 13)
  • Australia v England (Melbourne) - Australia won by 8 wickets (Dec 13)
  • Australia v England (Sydney) - Australia won by 281 runs (Jan 14)
  • England v Sri Lanka (Lord's) - Match drawn (June 14)
  • England v Sri Lanka (Leeds) - Sri Lanka won by 100 runs (June 14)
  • England v India (Nottingham) - Match drawn (July 14)
  • England v India (Lord's) - India won by 95 runs (July 14)

Cook's own form with the bat has suffered as well, with the 29-year-old having not hit a century in over a year.

Despite the poor sequence of results, Cook says he won't be standing down any time soon.

"It gets harder and harder the more we don't win, and of course it all heaps on me.

But until that bloke taps me on the shoulder and says we don't want you to be captain, I'm desperate to try and turn this around for England.

If I'm not good enough at the end of the summer, then so be it, but I am trying my heart out to do this."
