England skipper cook wary of india’s threat

England captain Alastair Cook said even though they have made a ‘great start’ to the series, he is no mood to take a ‘world-class’ India lightly in the second ODI on Tuesday. Cook said England will have to consistently maintain their standard of performance if they desire to beat India in the ODI series after the triumph in the Test rubber. ‘It is obviously a great start to the series when you win the first game. It was an important game to win. But now we have to move on. Hopefully, we can keep up the standard of our performances and win the upcoming game,’ he said on the eve of the second ODI at the Nehru Stadium. ‘They’re (India) a world-class side and statistics show how hard it is to win here, but we’re prepared for that. We will have to keep up our skills and our standard of performances, if we want to win this game and the sewries,’ Cook added. Cook backed his pace duo of Steven Finn and Jade Dernbach to come good. ‘On that wicket (at Rajkot) it was incredibly hard for us to bowl. It was a really quick outfield. It was probably one of the fastest wicket I’ve played.’
