Video - Cook Enjoys 'Special Day'

England captain Alastair Cook reflects on a 'special day' at Chester-le-Street after his side won the Ashes series with a 74-run win over Australia.

At times during Australia's run chase of 299, England looked to be in trouble until Stuart Broad, with six wickets, helped them take nine in the final session to wrap up a victory that puts them 3-0 up in the series with one match remaining.

Describing his emotions, Cook said: "Nine wickets in a session. The crowd and everything which went with that today. The excitement. Obviously the nerves at the beginning.

"I think you're right, that was the moment. We're going to get greedy I think. We want to try and repeat that at the Oval but we can think about that with sore heads tomorrow and enjoy what's a very special day and one which I'm certainly going to look back on with huge fondness," he added.
