It was not a funny Indian Test series for the England team as they ended up battling to no avail against the No.1 cricketers as far as the Test series is concerned.
The Indian team, which was led by Virat Kohli, the Indian Test captain went on demolishing several cricketing records as they led the series by 3-0 against a helpless England side, following their fourth test win in Mumbai.
This, the team went on to equal the record for most Test wins in a calendar year by India (eight). If they are able to plunge ahead, and win their last Test in Chennai, they would have well broken and gone past the record.
For Kohli, this has been their best series win so far, considering that between 2011 and 2014, India had lost three successive series to England.
For now, India is witnessing a wonderful time in their Test cricket history, and more especially the captain, Kohli who scored a record best 235 in the fourth test against England at Mumbai.
He also becomes the first Indian captain to guide the squad to five test wins in succession, following their victories in the series against Sri Lanka, South Africa, West Indies, New Zealand and England.
He joined the list of elite gentlemen with at least three double centuries in once calendar, a list that holds only five names, with Michael Clarke at the top of the list with 4 double centuries to his name.
And that’s not all, as he also became the third Indian captain to score over 1,000 runs in a calendar year, thus following in the illustrious footsteps of Sachin Tendulkar and Rahul Dravid.
They would have to learn to keep up the same consistency they have shown so far, when they play in unfamiliar conditions as that would be the real test for them.
