India started their Asia Cup campaign on scratchy note with a close win over Hong Kong. The middle order did not back up after the solid performance of the top order and the bowling looked quite rusty.
So, it is finally 4-1. India had their moments but it was England who snatched the momentum back time and again. They were truly the better side in the series and deserve to walk away as the winners with Cook and Anderson leading the way.
India's only hope to make a comeback in the match was to break the partnership between Alastair Cook (147) and Joe Root (125) early on day four. However, that did not happen as the two batsmen not only piled the runs but piled up the misery on India, both scoring centuries.
