Kolkata: Stand-in T20 captain Graeme Swann on Saturday admitted that England played some "abjectly horrible" cricket during the just-concluded ODI series against India and the consolation win in Saturday's one-off Twenty20 match was not enough to heal their wounds.
England were drubbed 0-5 by India in the ODI series before the visitors registered their first win of the tour with a comprehensive six-wicket win over the hosts in the shortest format of the game at the Eden Gardens.
"It's been a very tough month for us. We've played some abjectly horrible cricket, but it came together today. We know that we played some poor cricket for five games, and one swallow doesn't make a summer," Swann said.
