India have never won a Test in England immediately after losing one. Here, they have pulled off this big win after losing 2 in a row. A comeback for the ages

In South Africa all of us felt a 5 test series was needed. That’s the real test series. Here we have one. Glad. This will now show if the win is a freak or can India rub it in. I think India can. — Boria Majumdar (@BoriaMajumdar) August 22, 2018

Many congratulations to the Indian team on the victory at Trent Bridge. They showed a lot of character after being 2-0 down and am very happy with the way most of the batsmen applied themselves, and the bowlers were clinical too. Well deserved ! #ENGvIND

Hardik Pandya and Jasprit Bumrah have played a key role in helping India win a Test in England. Not sure how many expected this 3 -4 years ago. One man that deserves all the credit is John Wright and the @mipaltan franchise for identifying them. #ENGvIND — Gaurav Sundararaman (@gaurav_sundar) August 22, 2018
