Tourists go 2-1 down in five-match limited-overs series.
England captain Alastair Cook said that his team need to improve quickly following their seven-wicket defeat to India in the third ODI in Ranchi.
Having been put into bat by India skipper MS Dhoni, the tourists were then skittled for just 155, before the hosts strolled to their victory target.
“We’ve got to be clear and start producing the goods out in the middle and not just talk about it,” Cook said in the post-match ceremony.
“We’ve got some quality players and if we want to win we need to stand up as batsmen and deliver.
“It’s kind of a catch 22 at the top there, it was moving around but you had to score – 230 wasn’t going to be good enough because we knew it would flatten out.
“We got it wrong, one of the skills you need is being able to judge a good score and we didn’t get anywhere near it.
“It’s an old cliche but partnerships are crucial for building big scores and when you lose wickets in clusters that puts the opposition on a high and you lose the momentum you’ve built up.”
“It’s frustrating because you look back to Rajkot where we played really nicely and it’s quite hard to explain why we haven’t played well in these last two games.
“It’s important we don’t over-complicate it when we come to Mohali. We’ve all delivered before for England and it’s a matter of taking it upon ourselves as a team, as the lucky 11 who go out there, to deliver the goods.”
The fourth match of this game-game series takes place in Mohali on Wednesday.
