England were drubbed 0-4 by India in the five-match series, which ended on Tuesday with hosts' innings and 75-run win in the final Test. "I've got to go away and do some thinking. This is not right time to make decisions as big as that. I need to go home first enjoy Christmas as much as I can do and then come back in January and look to plan with Straussy and see what s the right decision for English cricket," Cook said. <p></p> <p></p>"I've got to go away and decide whether I am the right man to take England forward. It s the wrong time to make those decisions as energy is low and you can make foolish decisions." Cook said he wants to come up with a sensible decision and he has the luxury of time to do that. "When there's not a Test match for seven months it d seem very foolish to stand here now and make a decision which either you regret or don t. If there was a Test match in three weeks time you d have to think. But while there is a bit of space why not use it?," he said. <p></p> <p></p><strong><a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/series/england-in-india-2016-200414/live-scores/india-vs-england-5th-test-match-181708-summary.html" target="_blank">FULL CRICKET SCORECARD: India vs England, 5th Test at Chennai</a></strong> <p></p> <p></p>The England captain said defeats on the India's tour are difficult to deal with. "It's been a tough tour. When you lose games of cricket it becomes very hard and it can be quite a lonely place. You ve got to give credit to India. They ve played some good cricket on the way. We knew it would be a pressure day on Tuesday and at some stage we would lose a wickets in clusters," he added. <p></p> <p></p>"We weren't good enough or skillful enough as players to stop that momentum. So, yes, it s tough. We've had some good moments as well, it's not all doom and gloom. I can't fault the effort in the dressing-room. We ve stayed together as a team. Naturally when things go badly, things can break up. But the guys have been brilliant in committing to the cause. We just haven t been good enough to put India under pressure for long periods," Cook said.
