We have the belief to make a comeback: Cook

England captain Alastair Cook is confident that he has "got the right players" to stage a turnaround in the ODI series after another heavy defeat in the second ODI at the Ferozeshah Kotla here yesterday.

Staying positive: Cook

"After two heavy defeats, there is bound to be some questions asked about the team. We have the self-belief and there is no reason why we can't do it here," Cook was quoted as saying after England suffered an
eight-wicket loss.

"The conditions here are different, and it played a big role in today's game. It was hard to stop (Virat) Kohli and (Gautam) Gambhir once they got going. They really played well to take the game away from us," he said.

Cook said that his team has prepared well for the series by coming to India well in advance. "We do have the players to do well in these conditions. There are no major changes in the team. It is just that we are not being able to deliver," he said.

The skipper said his team is not doing the basics right. "We have got the skills. We were a little short on the basics in the first two matches and we paid a price," he explained.
