Openers Kevin Pietersen and Alastair Cook showed great delight in England clinching the one-day series against Pakistan, saying a win in sub-continent like conditions was amazing.

Pietersen hit his first one-day century since November 2008, finishing with an unbeaten 111 while Cook scored 80 -- narrowly missing a third successive hundred -- to help England win the third match by nine wickets on Saturday.

Pietersen said England's win was brilliant besides his hundred. "It's nice to get a hundred after a long time and three nil up also is a brilliant, brilliant result for us," said Pietersen.

"We got hammered in India," said Pietersen of a 5-0 defeat in India last year.
