England cricketer Ian Bell says that his side are taking the ongoing triangular series in Australia very seriously as they build-up for the mega ICC Cricket World Cup 2015, starting in Australia and New Zealand from February 14.

Meanwhile in their last match, Pacemen Steven Finn produced a career-best performance to lead England to a nine-wicket thrashing of India in both countries’ second outing in a triangular one-day series in Brisbane on Tuesday.

India’s decision to bat first backfired when they were dismissed for just 153 in 39.3 overs in the one-day international, with Finn exploiting the Gabba’s pace and bounce to claim five wickets for 33. In reply, England cruised to victory in just 27.3 overs giving them a much-needed confidence boost ahead of the World Cup in Australia and New Zealand that kicks off next month.

Their recent one-day form has been very poor, but they were never stretched with the bat as they finished on 156 for one, with opener Ian Bell unbeaten on 88 and James Taylor on 56 as they notched their first win under new captain Eoin Morgan.
