Alastair Cook questioned his position as England captain in the past few weeks before deciding he "could not live with" walking away from the job.

Cook, went into the third Test with India at Southampton under pressure to stand down, short of runs and leading a team without a Test win in a year.

But the England captain enjoyed knocks of 95 and 70 to help his side to a solid 266-run win in the third Test.

The fourth Test begins at Old Trafford today, with Cook able to count on the services of James Anderson after the bowler was cleared of abusing and pushing Ravindra Jadeja during the first Test at Trent Bridge.
