Virat Kohli, Man of the Match:  We as a team want to dedicate this win to the flood victims in Kerela. A tough time there, and this is the bit that we can do. The win was much-needed in this series and in context, and to have done so well in all departments is a victory for the entire dressing room. There was no panic, and we were outplayed in only one game where we were outplayed out of the last 5, and that was Lord's. We dominated in this game because we put runs on the board and then the bowlers did well, even Ashwin did well with his injury. So we, as batsmen, did well to give them a cushion for the bowlers to go hard. Even the slips did well, and this mix of all skills couldn't have come at a better time. Ajinkya was clear in his mindset in the first innings, and when he goes out and plays like that, he can change the complexion of the game. It was about getting stuck and not throw our wicket away. They're a quality attack and you need grit and determination, and Ajinkya did that in the first innings and Pujara in the 2nd. I haven't thought about the 2014 failures, but I'd like to thank my wife who is here and keeps motivating me. The four fastest bowlers in the series have been Indians and we're proud of our fitness levels. We want the opposition to bat well and get runs and we don't want to gift them any. We definitely believe we can come back from 0-2 to 3-2.
Joe Root (ENG): I don't think there are any regrets. It's a strong team that we have. It was always going to be a difficult decision and looking at the toss, there was some light grass on the wicket and it was a good opportunity to get ahead in the game. That didn't happen. That's nitpicking if I say we should have bowled fuller, so we just have to give the credit to India. We underperformed in the first innings. In the 2nd innings, the partnership between Buttler and Stokes was admirable and a lesson in how to play Test cricket. We have to look at that and adapt our games individually in Southampton. You're always looking to find a way to get people out (on Virat), and it's not like he has got quick runs against us, but he's got a way to adapt to these conditions. We have experienced bowlers, who can work him out. We need to give our bowlers a good chance in the slips (about the 12 catches dropped). It's early days for the Bairstow injury, and over the next few days, we will have a better idea about the swelling. It would be great if he manages to recover - you want guys like that in your side. It has been challenging in the top-order in this series, and these conditions, so it's difficult to rule the openers out. The best thing about Buttler's 100 was that he showed how good a cricket brain he has and how well he worked out the situation. It was great to see what he is capable of doing and hopefully, he can score a lot of hundreds in this series.
India won by 203 runs and make it 1-2
