England captain Alastair Cook's struggles continued on Thursday during the second day of the first Test between England and India, which saw India take control 457 to 43-1.

Cook's rough day at Trent Bridge included having the opener bowled off his thigh pad for five and missing a ball from Mohammed Shami that deflected off his thigh pad down to the stumps. He has only scored 606 runs in his last 13 tests. 

"Cookie is going through one of those periods where everything is going against him," England's Stuart Broad told BBC. "But it only takes a dropped catch or a great cover drive to change that. I'd put a lot of money on him getting a hundred in these next Tests."
