Ahmedabad: England could not get what would have been a morale-boosting win but England captain Alastair Cook on Sunday said he was happy with the team's preparations ahead of the opening Test against India starting November 15.

"Everyone's got a chance to play in the three practice games. It was a good workout for the team. We are settling down nicely," said Cook after the third practice match against Haryana ended in a draw.

Regarding lack of quality opposition in the last two matches, Cook stated, "That's something beyond our control."
