BBC Sport - Ashes 2013-14: Andy Flower wants to continue with Alistair Cook

Flower wants to continue with Cook

Andy Flower says he is "motivated" to continue in his role as England cricket coach and also backs Alastair Cook as the right man to captain the side.

England face the prospect of an Ashes whitewash after the eight-wicket defeat in Melbourne left them 4-0 down in the series with just the fifth Test in Sydney still to come.

Despite the side's disappointing displays Flower says people should not be "totally distraught" with the result, pointing to England's recent success on the cricket field and that losing is "part of sport".
