Kolkata: England lifted the gloom after their crushing ODI series defeat against India by registering a six-wicket win over the hosts in the one-off Twenty20 match in Kolkata on Saturday and the English skipper Graeme Swann said the victory couldn't have come at a better time.
"We are very pleasantly surprised. After five heavy defeats you want to take something from the tour. Even though it's just one Twenty20 game that we won, it could not have come at a better time. It's really pleasing to take some sheen off India's 5-0 ODI series win," said Swann at the post-match press conference.
Captaining the Twenty20 side in the absence of injured Stuart Board, Swann praised his seamers for the good work and said Steven Finn was outstanding.
