Peter Moores backs 'battle-hardened' England to bounce back

Former England coach Peter Moores believes England's defeat in the first Test against Pakistan in Dubai will have reminded them of "the pressures" of sustaining success at the top of Test cricket.

He says England will be "battle-hardened" going into the second game of the series.

Speaking to BBC Sportsweek, Moores, who coached England between 2007 and 2009, also gives his backing to captain Andrew Strauss' battle to regain form with the bat, saying he is a "very, very good player" who "will have been through this before".
