India won by an innings and 36 runs and lead the series with 3-0

Anil Kumble: It's very special (talking about the win). We lost three tosses and we had to chase down whatever England set. For us to get to 600 with seven down was exceptional and the bowlers were excellent. He (Ashwin) is constantly working on his bowling. He knows that carrom ball can be difficult to pick and he showed that with Bairstow's wicket. We are the No. 1 team and we have the potential to become the best ever Test team in terms of results. Hopefully it's 4-0 in Chennai. We'll have a look at the pitch and take a call.

Alastair Cook : I thought 400 was a pretty good score on that wicket. Historically it's a good score on this ground. We had our chances in the second innings. They were 300/6, obviously Virat played an extraordinary cricket. We dropped him on 60 odd and Yadav played well too. He gave him a couple of chances as well. Our two best spinners have been Mo and Rash. It was a mistake to go for the fourth seamer. We haven't been good enough to get over the line. When you get a team doing 160 overs on the field, even the spinners get tired. We scored almost 600 runs on this wicket. To me, we batted better than we have done in the previous two games. I would say that we lost the game because of our missed chances and of course a third spinner would have been handy. Virat leads from the front, captains the side and it's very hard to bowl to him.

Virat Kohli is the Man of the Match

Virat Kohli: It's a special feeling to win the series. I was just having a chat with Ashwin in that victory lap, this is the ground where we lost the moment to England four years ago. We know that this wicket offers bounce as well, so the adjustment was very important. Credit to all the batsmen for doing that, especially Vijay. I could see the frustration in his mind of not getting the runs. To come out and get a hundred was very good. I was pretty focussed on this game. I knew we were 2-0 up. I was a bit nervous with 400 on the board, but I knew I have to score many for us to have a chance. The first thing was to level the scores. It's all about the body language and the belief you have in your mind and I am very grateful that it came at the right time. This is probably the sweetest win in the last 14-15 months. It was a test of patience on this wicket. I felt the advantage we had was England were a spinner short and their two spinners were very tired. We went after them hard. I think it was a brilliant cricket wicket. Ashwin obviously a champion bowler, we are running out of words to describe him. Everytime we play a game, he's there bagging the Man of the Match award. I am just delighted to have a guy like him in the team. It's very difficult to get past him and a real boost for team India. Defence is a very important aspect in India, if you don't defend well it's tough to score in India. We knew that they played a lot of hig risk shots and it would all crumble after a wicket or two.
