From the dressing room, we get you unseen visuals & reactions post an epic win from #TeamIndia at The Oval," BCCI wrote while sharing a video. The players and supporting staff were seen hugging and cheering following the win.
"Very very happy. Especially when you are visiting any of these countries and you know that you are 2-1 up," said stylish Indian opener Rohit Sharma in the video. The opener was named Man of the Match for his brilliant century.
Meanwhile, Indian speedster Umesh Yadav said, "We knew the wicket was flat so we had to put in a lot of effort on Day 5. We tried to bowl at good lengths and we tried to contain runs as we knew the wickets would come." Yadav, playing his first Test since December last year, picked up three wickets in each innings and was Indias leading wicket-taker in the match.

Another player who had a massive impact on the game was Shardul Thakur. "The day I got to know I am playing the game, I planned on creating an impact in this game and creating such an impact that I make a useful and winning contribution for the team," Thakur told BCCI in the video.
Thakur scored the fifties in both innings and he also went on to take two crucial wickets, including that of Joe Root in the second innings which led to Englands collapse.
