Cook: 'Ugly' scenes at end of first Ashes Test

England cricket captain Alastair Cook said there were "ugly" scenes at the end of the first Ashes Test as he confirmed a meeting on sledging with the match referee had taken place.

We have chatted together - obviously a private chat - and it is important that I am responsible for the England players. Some of those scenes were ugly at the end of that game, and we do have a duty to play the game in the right way.

We want to play tough cricket, just like Australia do.

But we have to make sure we stick to those boundaries, and I bear a responsibility for that.

– Alastair Cook
