LONDON - England captain Alastair Cook will "stay strong" in the remainder of the home series with India, according to coach Peter Moores after the opening batsman's struggles continued in the drawn first Test at Trent Bridge.

The latest in a run of a low scores came at Nottingham where the left-hander was bowled round his legs off the thigh pad for five to take his tally for the calendar year to a mere 97 runs in seven Test innings. It also meant Cook had now gone 25 knocks since scoring the last of his England record 25 hundreds more than a year ago, during which time he has averaged a meagre 24.

Meanwhile, the draw left England without a win in nine Tests, their worst run for more than 20 years.

However, England have put an immense amount of faith in Cook.
