India registered only their seventh Test win in England. India bowled out England on just 317 runs to win the game by a huge margin of 203 runs. It was Jasprit Bumrah who picked up a five-wicket haul in the second innings to kill England's hope of a comeback in the match.

Indian skipper Virat Kohli dedicated the win to Kerala flood victims. Drawing the attention to nature's destruction in southern part of India, he said, "Dedicate this victory to the flood victims in Kerala. This is our bit we can do from the Indian cricket team"

He also lauded the effort by Indian pacers and said, "The four fastest bowlers in the series have been Indians and we're proud of our fitness levels."

Kohli had a memorable game, both, as captain and batsman. Apart from securing his first Test win in England, the skipper also scored 200 runs in the game with the bat. He missed a ton in the first innings by 3 runs, but reached the century in second innings and scored 103 runs.

India and England will face each other for the fourth time this month on August 30. India can't take a sigh of relief yet because England still has the lead of 2-1. A draw or loss would mean there is no chance of winning the Test series here.
