India v England: Cook credits improved batting for win

Alastair Cook puts England's return to form against India down to their improved batting technique against spin bowling after victory in the third Test.

The England captain, who hit 190 in the first innings to pave the way for victory, also praised the "highly skilled bowling" of Graeme Swann and James Anderson as England won by seven wickets in Kolkata.

Cook admits he would now "take a draw" in the final Test in order claim a "very special" series victory, but insists England will be looking to win the match outright when the fourth Test begins in Nagpur on 13 December.
