Cricket: Let's be greedy and win last Ashes test too, urges joyful Cook
CHESTER-LE-STREET (REUTERS) - Captain Alastair Cook will not let England rest on their laurels after snatching victory from the jaws of defeat in the fourth Test and he wants to end the Ashes series in style next week.
The home team had the Durham crowd on their feet after the tea interval on Monday, producing a stirring fightback to win by 74 runs as Australia collapsed from 109 for none to 224 all out.
"Nine wickets in a session, the crowd, the excitement and the nerves...we are going to get greedy and try and repeat that at the Oval," an elated Cook told reporters after his side took an unassailable 3-0 lead in the five-match series.
"It was a very special day and one that I'll look back on with real fondness," he added after England won a third consecutive Ashes series.
