Here we have various interesting thoughts on the Test series and in larger sense India's tour of England.
After five Tests rolled into six weeks, hosts England came out triumphant winning the rubber 4 to India's 1.
With a win in the final Test, Joe Root's England were able to give one of their greats, Alastair Cook, a fitting farewell. Adjudged Player of the Match, Cook had an outstanding last hurrah, scoring 218 runs in the Test with a century in their second innings to complete a fairytale.
Another hero, James Anderson became the most successful seamer in Test history when he cleaned up Mohammed Shami for his 564th wicket, sealing 118-run victory over India at the Oval on Tuesday.
Lancashire pace bowler overtook retired Australia legend Glenn McGrath moving to fourth in all-time bowler's list.
The Virat Kohli-led Indian side too had their opportunities throughout the series, but because the tourists failed to seize crucial moments on several occasions, the scoreline reads in the favour of the hosts.
Here we have various interesting thoughts on the Test series and in larger sense India's tour of England. Have a look:
GREAT Test series ... Both teams playing a staring role ... Well done India who have a high class team to compete in all conditions ... but England at home prove once again they have a very very strong team for these conditions ... #ENGvIND

Congratulations England on the 4-1 series win. India were good in patches,but not consistent enough with the bat. Pant & Rahul’s display on last day was very heartening, so were Kohli’s & the bowlers consistency throughout .Need to work a lot to travel better.Ab MissionAustralia
