Pressure mounts on Cook as England lose to India

England cricket captain Alistair Cook is under pressure after the team slumped to defeat in the second test of the series against India.

Indian fast bowler Ishant Sharma took seven wickets in the second innings as the tourists won by 95 runs at Lords.

It is the latest in a poor summer for the England team, with question marks raised about Cook's captaincy and his own performance with the bat.
