India fast bowler Ishant Sharma claimed the key to securing the one-day series against England was not to worry about the wet ball in Bangalore.

India took their second win in a row under the Duckworth-Lewis method in a rain-interrupted match, to make it four straight victories over England in the seven-match series.

“It’s all part and parcel of the game, we are not thinking about if the ball is wet,” said Ishant.

The 20-year-old also admitted the support of senior bowler Zaheer Khan had helped with his bowling.

“If your senior guys give you the confidence it’s very good for you,” Ishant added. "We just stick to our basics and that’s it for us.”
