Video - Cook Thanks Fans For Ashes Support

England captain Alastair Cook features in this video thanking fans for getting behind his team as they won the Ashes earlier this summer.

England beat Australia 3-0 thanks to wins at Trent Bridge, Lord's and Chester-le-Street while the matches at Old Trafford and The Oval were drawn.

Now, Cook takes time out to show his gratitude for the wealth of support the team received over the course of the summer.

Fans took to social media outlets Twitter and Facebook using the hashtag #RISE to show their support, with the England & Wales Cricket Board (ECB) reporting an additional 125,000 fans during the series which gives it an online reach of 1.17 million.
