Alastair Cook 'desperate' to turn around England team

England cricket captain Alastair Cook has resisted calls for him to resign, insisting he is "desperate" to turn around the team's fortunes after a string of poor results.

Speaking after defeat in the second test against India, Cook told Sky Sports 2: "It gets harder and harder the more we don't win and of course that heaps on you at the end of the day.

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