Alistair Cook is pleased with England's performance in their final one-day international against England, despite having lost the series.

Alistair Cook has said that he is pleased with England's winning finish to their tour of India.

An Ian Bell century helped the tourists to a seven-wicket win over India in the final one-day international earlier today.

The England captain told Sky Sports News: "It was important to win the toss, but the way our bowlers put the ball in the right areas and then Ian Bell's contribution, we took our chances.

"It's always disappointing to lose the series. But to win two games here in these conditions, we can be quite proud of that.

"We can take lots of positives out of today. The ball was doing stuff throughout the whole day. It might have looked like we got over the line comfortably but that wasn't the case and there were a few nerves."

England lost the series 3-2.
