Kohli dedicates third-Test win to Kerala flood victims, thanks Anushka

The heartening aspect was the kind of domination shown by the Indian team in what can easily be termed as a complete performance under Virat Kohli's captaincy outside the sub-continent. The announcement for flood-hit Kerala drew a round of applause from the spectators.

Almost 14.50 lakh people belonging to 3.91 lakh families are still lodged in 3,879 relief camps across the state. Great team effort to win this after being 2-0 down, must be an exciting remaining 2 test matches. (Applause from the crowd).

Root added: "We have got a little bit of time to reflect on what has been a hard week, but in England we are a very good side at bouncing back from a tough couple of days".

England is not going to roll over without a fight, batsman Jos Buttler said on Tuesday as India sniffed victory at the end of the fourth day of the third Test between India an England. Catch live score and updates from India vs England in 3rd Test Day 4 from Trent Bridge, Nottingham here.

India needed just 1 wicket to win the match on the final day of the Test match.

Needing a single wicket to reduce their series arrears to 2-1, Ravichandran Ashwin had Jimmy Anderson caught at slip for 11 as England were bowled out for 317 in their second innings.

The wicket was the only one of England's 20 not to fall to a seamer with Jasprit Bumrah taking 5-85 in the second innings on his return from injury after Hardik Pandya's five-wicket haul in the first.

"It's fair to say that we very much under-performed in that innings", he said.

Kohli, who has led India on 38 occasions, has time on his side and considering India's jam-packed schedule, it seems likely that he will surpass MS Dhoni's Test captaincy record in the near future.

In Australia, grounds would normally only charge a gold coin donation if the Test was basically over heading into Day 5, but not at Trent Bridge where fans will still be asked to pay 10 pounds ($17.50).

He also thanked his wife and actor Anushka Sharma for motivating him.
