Mumbai: The comprehensive defeat in the first Test notwithstanding, England skipper Alastair Cook on Thursday sounded optimistic about turning around his team's fortunes in the second match against India, starting here on Friday.
"Clearly it was tough on confidence when you get beaten in a heavy manner. The beauty of the game is such quick turn around. Now we have got the chance and the opportunity to try and put it right. That is what we will have to do. We have to try and learn from last week and play well," Cook said.
Left-handed opener, Cook, was among the few from the touring party to come out of the disastrous first Test with his head held high, scoring a marathon 176 in the second innings, which kept England afloat till the last day.
