Reflecting on the performance, Cook lauded his bowlers.
"It was a very fine bowling performance. We thought we were above the rate but Anderson and Williamson took it on, luckily we got over the line.”"We’re two games away now. Graeme’s got a calf injury but we’re very lucky to have James Tredwell to step in,” he added.
