Team India's comeback in the series against England has been lauded by the cricket pundits and fans. Justifying their ranking, they played like a number one side and clinched a victory at Trent Bridge which they rightly deserved. 

After being knocked down by 2-0 in the series, the Virat Kohli-led side was chided for lack of fight. Former India batsman Virender Sehwag was upset after no proper retaliation by the Indian side. But the win in the third Test, made Sehwag believe that Team India are looking for more.

The 203-run win after a devastating defeat at Lord's -- which had lowered the morale of the whole team -- was a special one.

Sehwag, on India TV, said, "The way they played the last match (3rd Test), I feel that the Indian team can win the 4th Test on the fourth day itself. They have the spirit. But I feel that England will make a comeback. But India is like hungry tigers, they will hunt for a win for sure."

The third Test saw a bit of tussle between players as well. When debutant Rishabh Pant was dismissed in first innings, England pacer Stuart Broad had given a send-off by sledging. Broad found himself under pressure when he came in to bat in the second innings. Indian skipper Virat at slip had exchanged a few words with the English pacer.

Later, the England speedster was fined 15 percent of his match fees for breaching Level 1 of the ICC Code of Conduct. 

Sehwag shared his opinion on the incident. He said it was unnecessary by a veteran player like Broad. "Broad has played over 120 Test matches, this was Pant's first, you've dismissed him, you've got the wicket, there is no need of sledging. Kohli was right in making him (Broad) understand later on."

Indian bowlers bundled out England batting line-up in both the innings. Crest of a bowling performance made Sehwag praise the Indian bowling attack, he said, "I feel India's current bowling attack is one of the best at the moment. They have four pacers who have performed brilliantly so far. The ultimate test is on a flat track, whether they can claim all 20 wickets or not. Australia has the best batting tracks and if they're able to claim all 20 wickets, your name is made. I feel that the bowlers are not given the credits."
