Brook seeking moral victory for England from final Ashes Test
With England having already relinquished the famous urn to their fierce rivals, the attention turns to the nation's capital this week as the hosts attempt to level the series at 2-2 and salvage something from a series they have dominated at certain times.
England were the better side during the most recent Test in Manchester as rain stopped short what looked like a certain victory, while Brook's side also enjoyed periods of dominance during Tests they narrowly lost at Edgbaston and Lord's.
While disappointed England won't be able to regain the Ashes urn they so fiercely desire, Brook still feels his side can claim some sense of pride should they win in south London and level the series.
"We were dominating the game last week weren't we? So if the game had played out, I would like to think we would have won that," Brook said.
"So if we can win this week, it almost can make it a moral victory.
"It's a shame the weather ruined it for us because we'd have felt very confident going into this game at 2-2."
The ability to stop Australia from achieving a second series triumph in England this century and the first since 2001 is also at the forefront of Brook's mind.
"We haven't lost yet," Brook noted.
"They've only retained it. So, if we win this week, it's a draw isn't it?
"That would be lovely (to deny Australia a drought-breaking series win). It's not nice drawing is it, but it would be lovely to not give them that privilege."
