It was exceptional Test match for India. They were down and out after the second Test at Lord’s and the Kohli-led team showed great character to bounce back from a morale-deflating loss and have registered a comprehensive win.

The series stands 2-1 now, still in favour of England but this victory has spiced things up for the remaining two Tests.
