England players support their beleaguered skipper

6:01 am on 21 January 2014

The England cricket all rounder Ravi Bopara has urged Alastair Cook to stay on as captain, saying the whole player group fully supports the under siege skipper.

Cook has said he'll consider stepping down as captain of the limited overs sides following a disastrous tour of Australia, in which England has lost the Ashes 5-0 and currently trails 3-0 in the ODI series.

But going into the fourth one dayer in Perth on Friday Bopara said despite the team's horrible results this summer, Cook remains the best man for the job, and he does still believe in himself.
