The Nottingham Test was a personal triumph for Kohli, who scored 103 in his side's second innings 352 for seven declared following his first-innings 97.
India played their 38th combination in as many Test matches under Kohli at the Trent Bridge Test against England which the visitors won by 203 runs to keep themselves afloat in the five-match series. "I don't think we were at our best". But every captain is different, and every team's dynamics are different. "They are playing as if they are touring India, and not the other way round", Harbhajan was as quoted by Press Trust of India.
"They were close to winning the series in South Africa".
While England have work to do with the bat, they also continue to be let down by drops in the slips, with Root insisting the players are hard at work to eradicate the issues.
"The victory was much-needed in this series and in context, and to have been clinical in all departments is a victory for the entire dressing room".
An important contributor to the victory was India's vice-captain Ajinkya Rahane.
Complementing Kohli's batting and captaincy, Harbhajan said: "When you do that, take throw downs from 18 yards or so with a wet, new ball, you get used to pace and movement". They're a quality bowling attack but you need patience grit and determination to score against them. "She's copped a lot in the past but she deserves the credit for this one", he said.
"He is a brilliant batsman".
Harbhajan said England's batsmen were now looking vulnerable against both pace and spin. Some of their first-choice batsmen have an ordinary record in domestic cricket, averaging 30-35 at best.
LONDON: James Vince could make a return to England duty at his Hampshire home ground after being included in a 14-man squad announced Thursday for next week's fourth Test against India at Southampton.
The offie said that the Indian team faced way too much backlash after going 2-0 down at Lord's and believed that after the third Test, the series is now wide open. If you look, the two potent fast bowlers for English conditions were Bhuvneshwar and Bumrah, they didn't play in the ODIs at all and in the first couple of Tests, yet to play together.
"We dominated the game because we put runs on the board and then the bowlers were waiting and ready as always". Long considered a white-ball specialist, he broke through England's resistance in the second innings dismissing the centurion Jos Buttler and hastening India's rush to victory with figures of 5 for 85.
