England pacer Chris Jordan feels that under-fire skipper Alaistar Cook is determined to shrug off the recent 5-0 mauling against Australia  in the Ashes 2013-14 and insists he will “leave Australia with some respectability” despite a poor run with the bat.

Cook has a dismal average of just 22.72 throughout his 11 innings during the current tour of Australia.

Cook has also come under the scrutiny by former international cricketers such as Andrew Strauss, Michael Vaughan, Geoffrey Boycott, Ian Chappell and Shane Warne, for his captaincy style.

Though under severe pressure after losing to Australia in the first One-Day international (ODI) played at Melbourne on Sunday, Cook still has  the backing of his players, said Jordan to .

“Cook’s been pretty relaxed, and probably one of the most favourite people in the dressing room at the minute,” Jordan was quoted as saying by ninemsn.

“He’s very much looking forward to this series and trying to leave Australia with some respectability, so I think the guys are helping him through it pretty well,” added Jordan.

Australian all-rounder Glenn Maxwell, also stoke the verbal fire against England by saying that they could also be white-washed 5-0 in the ongoing ODI series.

“I think they’re still carrying a little bit of the effects from the Ashes,” said Maxwell.

On the contrary, Jordan feels that England still can bounce back in the ODI series, with the match against the Brett Lee-led Prime Minister’s XI at the Manuka Oval being the starting point for their revival.

“The feeling in the camp is very good, very vibrant,” said Jordan.

“It’s just a matter of executing those skills on the day, and I’m sure we’ll come up with a win,” added Jordan.

The English team for the PM XI’s match will be named on Tuesday.
