Brief Scores: England 325/4 (Ian Bell 85; Ashoke Dinda 2/53) beat India 316/9 (Yuvraj Singh 61; James Tredwell 4/44) by nine runs
Man of the Match: James Tredwell for clocking figures of 10-0-44-4 in a high-scoring game.

Tredwell: "You try and hit your skills over and over again. If the batsman hits a good shot, so be it. We got wickets at the right time, even at the lower end, it is what helped us get over the line. [New fielding rules] give you an opportunity to play against the spin, sometimes it can play into your hands."

Cook: "Good toss to win. Very good wicket, and we made the most of it. Proud of the side. Samit and Craig at the end made a difference. Was an excellent wicket throghout, and a quick outfield. It is hard to defend with five men in the circle, India kept getting close, but we got the wickets when it mattered. Tredwell bowled brilliantly. It is pretty much the same attack we had here in 2011, and good to see how we have learned from the experience."

MS Dhoni: "It was difficult but we should have got there. It was close to 280 or 290 [with the quick outfield] rather than looking at it as 320-odd. Maybe I should have batted a few more overs. There was a situation in the middle when it looked they would have scored 340, spinners got us back. It is a new batch of bowlers, not experienced in international cricket. You have to make sure someone bats at one end and others rotate around him. I won't sound arrogant but it seemed easy when I and Raina were in, with five fielders in the circle. But once we fell, it was difficult."
