England captain Alastair Cook praised his side's all-round performance as they went 2-0 up in the one-day series against Pakistan.

Cook created headlines once more, becoming the first England captain to score back-to-back ODI centuries, but was quick to praise the efforts of his team-mates as Pakistan were bowled out for 230 in their response to England's 250-4.

England are now 1.90 to win the third ODI while Cook is 4.00 to be the side's top batsman once more.

Cook singled out Steven Finn for praise after the paceman got four wickets for just 34 runs.

"I thought Steven Finn was outstanding," he said.

"I think his first five overs only went for seven runs. We got ahead of the game then. I thought we also fielded outstandingly well. We saved a lot of runs.

"It was a really good team performance. We'll enjoy it tonight.

"It's nice go 2-0 up in the series and hopefully we can finish it in Dubai."

England are now 1.33 to win the series while a draw is at 3.40. Pakistan's captain Misbah-ul-Haq admitted his side's top order should have done better but insists they are capable of winning the third match on Saturday.

"This team can do anything the way they're playing," he said. "They can come back at any time. I believe in our team."
