England captain Alastair Cook demands to see improvement from his batsmen when they next take on India.

Alastair Cook has urged his England batsmen to fulfil their potential during the remainder of their one-day international series against India.

Earlier today the tourist were bowled out for just 155 runs - a total that India surpassed with 22 overs to spare.

In the match before today's meeting in Ranchi, England only managed to score three more runs and with that in mind, Cook has urged the squad to "deliver" the goods when it counts.

"We've got to be clear and start producing the goods out in the middle and not just talk about it," said the skipper.

"We've got some quality players and if we want to win we need to stand up as batsmen and deliver."

The two nations will play the fourth of their five-match series on Wednesday in Mohali.
