England coach Andy Flower has told his players to follow the example of captain Alastair Cook and "stand up" in the second Test against India.

England lost the first Test by nine wickets, but were encouraged by an improved second-innings total of 406 - which included a defiant 176 from Cook.

Cook's performance, in his first Test as permanent captain following the retirement of Andrew Strauss, was one of the few positives to take from the defeat in Ahmedabad.

England struggled to cope with the home side's spin bowlers in the first innings, before a sixth-wicket stand of 157 between Cook and Matt Prior showed their team-mates how to deal with the turning ball.
