Jenny Gunn spoke about winning 100 ODI caps for England and the win over India

Jenny Gunn had more reasons to smile than most after England women completed a remarkable turnaround by sealing a 3-2 NatWest series victory against India.

The hosts found themselves 2-0 down in the five-match rubber but showed real character to win the next two games and set up a winner-takes-all clash at Wormsley.

That encounter was another they emerged victorious in, cruising to a 29-run victory on the Duckworth-Lewis method.

The triumph completed a fine day for Gunn, which begin with her being awarded a 100th England cap by skipper Charlotte Edwards.

"I did not think I would play one game for England, let alone 100," she told ecb.co.uk. "It was a special occasion and I am just happy we won the game."

Reflecting on the highlights of her England days, she added: "Whitewashing Australia in Australia was special and obviously the two World Cup and Ashes wins.

"There has been quite a lot already, but hopefully there are still a lot more to come. I do not know (if she could get another 100). Maybe if my body holds up.”

England can reflect positively upon a series in which they showed fighting spirit that will no doubt stand them in good stead for the challenges ahead - namely the T20 and 50-over World Cups.

Gunn feels England have learnt more than they would have from a more comprehensive success, but was still rueing their efforts in the opening two games.

"We should have fought a bit harder and won the first two as well," she said. "At Taunton (in the first game) we were a bit soft and did not finish the job.

"We were disappointed but knew we had to fight back; we showed a lot of character to come back. We find out what we are doing wrong a lot quicker (when we lose some games).

"But we have still won, we are still learning and are happy."
