Alastair Cook: England's cricketers are ready to gamble

England captain Alastair Cook admits his side would be taking a step into the unknown if they played Simon Kerrigan against India at Lord's next week, but the hosts could be ready to take that gamble after drawing the first Test.

The series opener at Trent Bridge petered out to a farcical end as, with neither side able to press for victory, Cook decided to bowl himself. He managed to snare the wicket of Ishant Sharma but a more serious spin option is in the frame for Thursday's second Test.

The hosts had a fleeting glimpse of opening up a run chase when India lost three wickets in the first hour, but debutant Stuart Binny (78) restored order. India closed out the inevitable on 391 for nine declared, Bhuvneshwar Kumar (63no) bagging his second half-century of the contest.
