India needed just 10 minutes to wrap up victory with the 17th delivery bowled on Wednesday after England resumed the fifth day on 311 for nine. The match finally was brought to an end when Ravichandran Ashwin had England No 11 James Anderson caught by Ajinkya Rahane at slip -- the first wicket for an Indian spinner in this fixture.

This was just India's seventh Test match victory in England.

As always, Twitter was abuzz and this is how the Twitterati reacted to India's rare win.
