Beating England not as easy as it looked: Virat Kohli

Beating England not as easy as it looked: Virat Kohli

With this victory India has also won the five-match series 3-0.

Cook, who recently overtook Michael Atherton's record of 54 Tests as England captain, said a lack of world class spin bowlers had hurt his side in India.

Despite Kohli's incredible form, there is not much doubt that Ravichandran Ashwin is India's biggest match-winner in Test cricket now and he showed us why with a 12-wicket haul in Mumbai.

Anderson will be required with the bat at least, and has not given up hope that he may yet have something to bowl at too.

Alastair Cook regretted a "sour end" to the fourth Test as both umpires had to intervene in a heated exchange between England number 11 James Anderson and India's match-winner Ravi Ashwin. "You either make good ones or bad ones and you have to live with that", said Cook. "We've just not taken those chances".

-Kohli became the only Indian batsman to score 1,000 runs in Tests this year. Has he got the energy to lead them up to the Ashes next year, to try and win Down Under and make up for the 5-0 defeat?

Joe Root of England celebrates the wicket of Usman Khawaja of Australia during day four of the 2nd Investec Ashes Test match between England and Australia at Lord's Cricket Ground.

The irony of that role did not seem to be lost on him as he said, with a smile: "For the first time, I was trying to calm things down in the middle at a time when James Anderson is involved". We haven't got anything on the platter.

"This series win is probably the sweetest (success) in the past 14-15 months".

"If we were playing anywhere else, we would have caught them, sure".




"Where we stand today - 50 to 60 percent of that is Ashwin's effort..."

"To win at Wankhede, going three-nil against a top quality side that has beaten us convincingly last two times, it feels really good".

Kohli, who was on 147 overnight, and Yadav continued to torment the England bowlers who went wicketless in the first session after India resumed on 451 for seven.

What do you say about the incident? "I go back to the chances we missed, we could have bowled India out for 400".

All relevant statistics therefore support Anderson's suggestion that it is much harder to get the India captain out in home conditions than overseas.

"That made a huge difference". Anderson suggested that Kohli hadn't changed his technique much since his disastrous tour to England in 2014 and that the Indian captain's faults couldn't be exposed here due to the pitches.

The comments from Anderson weren't intended as a sledge but rather as an honest assessment of what he thought of a member of the opposition.

"It was those fine margins, especially in these conditions". Once you get momentum you can thrive on the deliveries.

Kohli and Jayant's punishing partnership was a case in point, as well as a proud achievement for the Indian pair.
