Jordan: England focused

Chris Jordan says England are determined to bounce back from their Sri Lanka disappointment in the Test series with India.

Alastair Cook's side were two balls away from a 0-0 draw with the Sri Lankans last month, only to go down to an agonising defeat when Jimmy Anderson was dismissed to hand the tourists their first Test series win in England.

But Jordan feels that loss will serve as an inspiration to England, who head into a five-game series with India which starts at Trent Bridge on Wednesday.

India have brought a squad with little experience of English conditions, with only three of their players having been involved in a Test on these shores.

\"We will be doing everything possible to put it right," Jordan told the ECB's official website.

\"The mood is brilliant. We had two days at Loughborough which was very productive, both for team spirit and skills.

\"The mood in the camp is excellent which is credit to (Peter) Mooresy and Cooky at the minute for creating that environment. It allows players to go out there and express themselves.

\"As long as we keep sticking to our processes and sticking to the basics as a team, I think we will be okay.

\"It's very exciting. I was very grateful I was named in the squad and hopefully if I get the nod, I can put in some good performances for England in this series.

\"They have some very talented batsmen so it will make for an interesting series.

\"We are an emerging side and so are they. Both teams will be looking to impress at every opportunity they get. It will be good viewing."
