In this video, England skipper Alastair Cook admits that every player has “a lot to play for” in the England team following the nine-wicket defeat against India and he further added the squad will be working hard to turn results around after the One-Day International (ODI) series defeat.

Cook might be under tremendous pressure after three consecutive losses, but he has made it clear that he is not stepping down as ODI captain in the wake of his side’s one-day series defeat against India. England are trailing the five-match series 0-3 after losing the fourth ODI by nine wickets against India at Edgbaston.

“At this precise moment in time, no,” said Cook when asked whether he will relinquish his ODI captaincy. “I will be the captain of this team in the World Cup if I’m allowed to be. I don’t have a say on selection but I’ve captained for three-and-a-half years with the goal to try to win the World Cup in Australia.

“I know that seems a bit far-fetched at the moment when we’re losing games of cricket but there are a lot of really good players in that change room and if we can improve at the rate we need to improve. We’ve got a chance and that’s what we have to believe in,” he said.
