"A tough time there", Kohli said in the post-match presentation after the 203-run win over the home team.

In front of a smattering of spectators at Trent Bridge, India quickly took the one wicket it needed on the final day of the third test to clinch a 203-run victory. She's copped a lot in the past but she deserves the credit for this one.

"There was no panic in the team and we were outplayed in only one Test out of the five we had played since South Africa, and that was at Lord's".

The tourists claimed the extra half-hour in a bid to wrap up victory with a day to spare but Adil Rashid (30 not out) and James Anderson (eight not out) survived until the close, with England still 210 runs adrift of a mammoth target of 521.

It was also a personal triumph for India captain and man-of-the-match Virat Kohli who made 103 in his side's second innings 352 for seven declared following the star batsman's first-innings 97.

England was all out for 317.

But having been skittled out for just 161 in a first innings lasting 38.2 overs, with unheralded medium-pacer Hardik Pandya taking five for 28, England might have been stung into greater top-order resistance this innings. "And I think, actually, what we've got to do is take the example of young Ben [Stokes] and Jos [Buttler] yesterday and learn from it". He hit the nail right on the head with his knocks of 74 and 147 in the previous match which concluded on August 21 against Nottingham played at the venue that will host the fourth Test.

Ollie Pope showed his inexperience with a poor shot, following a wide delivery outside off stump and finding a diving Virat Kohli at third slip.

Nevertheless, Buttler had a measure of satisfaction that in his 38th Test innings and four years after his debut, when he made his previous highest score at this level of 85, against India at Southampton, he had finally reached three figures.

Meanwhile, a finger injury suffered by Jonny Bairstow while keeping wicket on Monday meant he did not come into bat in his usual number five position.

Joe Root has encouraged Alastair Cook's critics to write him off in the hope that it inspires the former England captain to "score a double-hundred". The opener's wife is heavily pregnant. "You look at the second innings and the partnership between Buttler and Stokes and that's a real lesson to our side in how to play Test match cricket".

"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".

Call it a coincidence, Kohli has accumulated exactly 200 runs in the first and third Test matches. "In this format, and for the group of players we've got, it's well below par what we're capable of doing - even if it is bowler-friendly conditions". The bowling group was eager to take those 20 wickets again.

"We have got a little bit of time now to go away and reflect on what has been a hard week". Instead, there was free admission.
