Cook calls on England to 'look into inner souls' to stop Ashes 'slide'

London, Dec 9 : England captain Alastair Cook has called on his team to look into their inner souls to stop the Ashes slide, according to reports.

According to the Daily Star, Cook pointed out that England needs to look hard into themselves, deep into the inner soul and drag the performance required.

He added that a 2-0 lead is not insurmountable and it is a bit like football because if they get the next goal, it can be vital.

England lost their last four wickets quickly on a dank final morning, despite a return to form for Matt Prior (69), the report said.

They were bowled out for 312, 133 runs more than they had managed in any of their three previous attempts here, the report added.
