One of the very few batsmen to emerge with his head held high in the big defeat to India in the first Test, England skipper Alastair Cook on Monday said it was time for all his team members to chip in.

Cook scored a defiant 176 in the second innings but could not avert a nine-wicket defeat at Ahmedabad. Cook said his team will need to improve in a lot of areas.

Though happy to score his third century on the trot as captain, having got two against Bangladesh earlier when he was standing in for the now-retired Andrew Strauss, Cook acknowledged that it was not for a winning cause.
