Southampton: Architect of England's win in the second ODI against India, captain Alastair Cook had thought of sitting out of the game after rain interruptions almost made it Twenty20, a format in which he hasn't quite made a mark so far.
Cook's 63-ball 80 helped England comfortably chase down a stiff 188-run target in the 23-overs-a-side affair on Tuesday.
"That was mentioned (in the dressing room) but in one-day competition, you are not allowed to bring in new players. I am pleased with my form and it shows the kind of right work I am doing. There is still huge amount I can improve. Hopefully I can keep doing it," Cook said in the post-match press conference.
