Virat Kohli : Specially after winning the series 3-0 and winning like this is an svidence of the character of this side. The pride was evident in the way we batted and bowled. We wanted the youngsters to do well. KL had a good domestic season. Karun had 2 innings and then does this. It's always tricky when you scored 477. We realized that once we got a couple of wickets, it will be a downward slide. Jadeja did the job in both the innings. Hit right areas and made it uncomfortable for the batsmen. Very proud. Toss and pitches were out of the equation. We were batting behind by 400 runs and then won by an innings. We work hard everyday and believe in us. What matters is what each one of us thinks about the other. And it's evident on the field. Nobody is playing for himself. Everytime we were put under the pump, we have tightened up on giving away wickets at crucial time, after intervals. The lower order has deflated the opposition and their hard work in the nets showed. Our pace was quicker than their'ss, even the consistency, and it was very proud to see that as an Indian captain. Kudos to the hard work they have put in.
Alastair Cook : You can't have excuses. India are the better team and they deserve to win. This was a good fifth day wicket. Turned from the rought apart from the odd ball. We weren't good enough to bat out. It was about missed opportunities. We dropped crucial chances and India kept punishing us. We have't been better than the opposition. Our catch drops have cost us. We just haven't scored enough runs and not taken wickets. It is a tough dressing room to be in. Tough to play five Tests in six weeks). It's a tough place to come and win and we have not been good enough.
Virat Kohli is the Man of the Series
Karun Nair : It will take a couple of days to sink in. Last night I was busy replying to texts and messages, so souldn't sleep. Amazing feeling when you contribute to a win and that too 4-0, like we wanted too. Not much celebration in the dressing room yesterday; we wanted to win first. There's a lot to learn in the dressing room. I try to learn and get better.
