How Tendulkar put Kohli on path to glory

India make break records during historic 3-0 win vs. England

India make break records during historic 3-0 win vs. England

Yesterday, India took just 34 minutes and 48 balls to dismiss the remaining four England batsmen and win the fourth Test by innings and 36 runs and thus the series 3-0 with one Test, at Chennai from December 16, still to be played in the five-game series.

The sight of Kohli leading the team on a round of the same ground, on Monday morning after completing a series win against the same opposition, was no time to think of the past.

England's cricketers lost the fourth Test and the series as India bundled them out for just 195 on the final day in Mumbai.

Resuming on day five at 182-6, England needed some courageous resistance from their tail to have any hope of forcing a draw, but folded meekly and were bowled out for 195.

As MS Dhoni's successor in 2014, Virat Kohli has already powered India to dramatic wins over South Africa, Sri Lanka, West Indies, New Zealand. "That is why we have won five in a row", he said.

"He hasn't got much captaincy experience but that doesn't mean he can't be a very good captain", Cook added, saying the magnitude of the task should not be underestimated. A good old fashioned leg-trap was set and England's hopes of making India bat again largely depended on the ability of Jonathan Bairstow and Jos Buttler to counter-attack the Indian spinners. Even in this game after being 0-2 down, they got 400 runs in the first innings. This is not a team that will throw in the towel. We're very proud of that and for me as a captain, this will definitely be at the top.

"I wouldn't have picked some of the players they've picked, I wouldn't have picked some of the teams they've picked but I can only give you my opinion". The batsman called for a review but the decision was upheld.

It was all over soon as Chris Woakes, Adil Rashid and Jimmy Anderson showed little resistance. The "action" came when James Anderson, the No 11, walked out to bat.

"Things like that. Just general, you know how Ashwin is, he is to the point, he can really strike you well and he doesn't need to say bad words".

"Of course you have questions, naturally you look at stuff", said Cook, who has captained his country more times than anyone else but appeared to suggest pre-Tour that he would relish focusing exclusively on his batting. If you are playing in England and taking wickets, that doesn't make you a great bowler. That is credit to India. And together, they helped India reach a massive 631 and take a healthy 231-run lead. Murali Vijay and Jayant Yadav too slammed centuries. India Captain Virat Kohli talked about flaws in England's Test batting line-up a day after pacer James Anderson questioned the India captain's batting technique.

He quickly clarified his remarks, before the drawn first Test in Rajkot, explaining he will - as after every series - discuss all matters arising in a debrief with England and Wales Cricket Board managing director Andrew Strauss.
