Virat Kohli, while on 49, completed his 4,000 runs in one-day internationals. He became the 12th Indian and 84thbatsman in the world to accomplish this feat.
By taking 93 innings to complete his 4,000 runs Kohli became the second quickest in ODIs to reach this mark, after Viv Richards, who took 88 innings to do so. However, both Richards and Kohli reached the mark in same number of matches (96).
At 24 years 75 days, Kohli is the second youngest, after Sachin Tendulkar (22 years 359 days), to tally 4,000 runs in ODIs.
Kohli took 1615 days (from the day of his ODI debut) to reach the 4,000-run mark. Only Rahul Dravid (1453) and MS Dhoni (1500) have taken fewer days to accomplish this feat.
India won the match with 131 balls to spare – their biggest ever against England in terms of balls remaining. The previous best was with 123 balls to spare at Jaipur in 2006.

Virat Kohli won his 13th Man of the Match award – his second against England.

Brief Scores: India 157/3 (Virat Kohli 77; James Tredwell 2/29) beat England 155 all-out (Joe Root 39; Ravindra Jadeja 3/19) by 7 wickets with 131 balls to spare.
Man of the Match: Virat Kohli for his match-winning knock of 77 runs off 79 balls with nine 4s and two 6s.
Virat Kohli is the Man of the Match. Kohli: "I was batting well for a while, getting out in different ways, got a few good balls, made a few mistakes. Today I just reacted to the way the ball was thrown at me. I did not have to pre-plan which I was doing in the previous games. I was relying on my reflexes. It was a difficult wicket, Finn gets the ball to seam on any wicket. Crowd support was brilliant."

Dhoni: "Bowlers did the job for us. It was important to take wickets with the new ball. 150-odd was not enough to defend for the English side. Gautam batted well with Virat, that was important as the ball was doing something. Most of the bowlers are new. Bhuvi and Shami have just got into the side. They will get a lot of confidence out of this. [When asked if he was nervous as he walked out to bat] Not really, I have played a lot of cricket here. Yuvi got out, so I got an opportunity to bat, at one stage it did not look if I would get to bat. I cannot say it was good that I got to bat, they will beat me in the dressing room. It is one of the best facilities. Execution is very important. Response from the people has been amazing. Everything went off well, we won the game, it was a perfect script."

Cook: "150 was nowhere near enough on that wicket. Credit to India. Not really going to defend that, unless it is a freak day. We did not get out to attacking shots, got out to defensive shots. It is frustrating, We have the potential, but we are not clicking at the moment. The ball skid on slightly better in the second innings, we knew that would happen."
