Video - Captains Look Ahead To Lord's Ashes Test

Australia captain Michael Clarke and his English counterpart Alastair Cook speak to the media ahead of the second Ashes Test at Lord's.

Both men were keen to avoid talking about recent allegations of a split in the Australian camp, instead wanting to focus their attentions on the game, which England go into 1-0 up following a 14-run at Trent Bridge.

Cook also hinted that England may make changes from the winning side with fast bowler Steven Finn's place potentially under pressure despite Lord's being his home ground.

"Every situation is different," Cook said. "I would love to say that the guys who play under me feel that I've got their back and that I'm supportive, but sometimes you do have to make a decision which is tough for the good of the side."
