Riverside (Chester-Le-Street): They have put up some very dominant performance so far against India, but England skipper Alastair Cook has refused to label his team as "favourite" in the One-day series, starting on Saturday.
Cook is cautious not to beat the drum of their apparent superiority against a weakened Indian side, which they trounced 4-0 in Tests before winning the one-off Twenty20.
"Whether we are favourites or not is irrelevant. It's what happens on the pitch tomorrow that's what matters. If we can play well, we can put them under pressure," Cook said ahead of the series-opener.
