Cook praises 'high quality' England

Alastair Cook says England put in a performance of "real high quality" as they comfortably beat Australia by eight wickets at Edgbaston.

Ian Bell led the way with 65 not out and Joe Root chipped in with an unbeaten 38 as the hosts chased down 121 in 32.1 overs to win on the afternoon of the third day.

Australian captain Michael Clarke criticised his own batting performance, saying that "it's going to be hard to be beat any opposition when they've got 11 and you've got 10".
