Cook expects bounce back

Alastair Cook admits England’s confidence has taken a hit following the defeat in Perth but has backed the tourists to respond immediately in the Boxing Day Test at the MCG.

Australia levelled the Ashes at 1-1 with a comprehensive triumph at the WACA, where England were skittled for 187 and 123 on a lively pitch.

Cook, who made scores of 235 not out and 148 in the opening two Tests, does not expect any repeat in Melbourne, despite the expectation of another seamer-friendly surface.

“As a batting unit, we took a little bit of a confidence hit in this game,” he said.
