Shocked Cook searches for answers

Dec 9, 2013: The lips said one thing; the eyes quite another. Alastair Cook, as is his way, led from the front after England's harrowing defeat in Adelaide. He faced the media with the same undemonstrative determination with which he faces the new ball. He didn't shir

Root fights but Australia tighten grip

Dec 8, 2013: As Joe Root led a stubborn England rearguard action in a third Test that logically seems as good as lost, perhaps the name of Faf du Plessis occasionally sustained him. It was du Plessis who stonewalled for seven-and-a-half hours on this ground a year ago
