The win also gave MS Dhoni the distinction of being the most successful Indian captain in Tests. This was Dhoni's 22nd Test victory as skipper, surpassing Sourav Ganguly at 21, and the 31-year-old attributed it to the entire team in the post-match presentation.
"I think I have got a very good side," Dhoni said. "Yes, we have gone through a period [where] we haven't won many games. Credit goes to the team and the support staff. And winning most matches as captain is a collective effort, and credit goes to each and everyone."
