Video - Cook, Dhoni React To Fourth Test Result
Following England's innings-and-54-run win over India on day three of the fourth Test at Emirates Old Trafford, captain Alastair Cook confirms that Stuart Broad has a broken nose after he was hit while batting.

Broad suffered the injury when a Varun Aaron bouncer found its way past the grille of his helmet and he was forced to retire hurt, playing no further part in the match.
Cook said that while the blow had broken his nose, Broad would be undergoing further scans to assess the full extent of the injury.
"I think he has a broken nose, we''re just waiting to see the scan results to see if there's any damage to his cheek bones," Cook said.
"Obviously a nasty blow and we wish him well, fingers crossed.
"It's a bit of a shock when you see the helmets these days for that to happen. Hopefully it'll be OK."
"The Lord's win and the performance of the seven, eight, nine, 10 and 11 - they have scored runs in the series - and that camouflages to some extent the question that top order is maybe not performing so well," he said.
"When you're playing with five bowlers, that fifth bowler has scored more runs for us, that actually put pressure.
"Whatever the reason may be, maybe a few of the batsmen are having a lean period at the same time.
"Overall we have to put more runs on the board so that the bowlers can get the batters of the opposition team out," he added.
