Alastair Cook: "It was good win, it was a good toss to win, but our bowlers bowled really well. Bresnan and Finn got early breakthroughs today. Our top four got runs and Bell played a fantastic knock. The pitch was doing something all day, so it was important to stick around with wickets in hands, it is important with the new regulations. We have good positives to take from this series. It has been a fantastic three months in India. "
Ian Bell is the man of the match for his super century"Our bowlers set up the win but 220 odd was a good target to chase. I really love opening the batting and hopefully I can continue do this in future. "
Suresh Raina gets the Man of the Series award. "When we came to this series, we had lost to Pakistan and England in Tests, so this win has been good. Today we were probably 20-30 runs short, but still we batted well in this series. When you bat 6, 7 you don't get many opportunities, but this series, our top order didn't get runs, so I got time in the middle. "
MS Dhoni: "Series was as tight as the Test series. We should have won this game, maybe we should have batted more sensibly. But it is a young side and it will learn with time. Thankfully, in three games, we didn't have to bowl those death overs, it remains an area of concern. Today bowlers got some help, maybe there were a little short today. The bowlers did well this series because the conditions really helped them too. Ishant was a big positive, he bowled really well throughout the series, if you look spell by spell. Fielding is a big positive. Jadeja's form solves the allrounder problem to an extent too."
