Still A Lot To Play For - Moeen Ali
England batsman Moeen Ali says that under-pressure captain Alastair Cook is the most mentally strong person he's ever met and that there is plenty to play for despite trailing the ODI series 3-0 to India.

Cook has struggled for form and is coming under severe criticism from former team-mates, but Ali says that the opener retains the confidence of his team-mates.
"He's the captain and as a player, as a professional cricketer, we all know that form... you do have a dip and things like that," Ali said.
"You've just got to try and stay confident, even though it is hard, and try to drag each other and try and keep each other going.
"He's determined to do well, for the team and for himself, so we're hoping that he will come off tomorrow.
"I've never met a more mentally strong a person than Alastair. To go through what he's doing and still be the same day in, day out.
"I can imagine it being very tough, but like I say, he's so strong that I know he will come good."
England may have no chance of getting anything out of the series ahead of the fifth One-Day International at Headingley, but Ali says there is still plenty at stake.
"There's still a lot to play for," he said.
"A lot of the players are still playing for places hopefully for Sri Lanka, et cetera, so... and to win a game for England is more important."
He added that he hoped that England's losing run would end sooner rather than later.
"Obviously, you don't want to keep losing and like I say, every game that comes, we're hoping to do well and perform and execute the plans and obviously it's taking a bit of time, but I'm sure when we get one on the way then they will all come, like the Test series did."
