Congratulatory messages poured in for the Virat Kohli-led Team India following their clinical win over England in the 4th Test in Mumbai on Monday.

Twitter was abuzz with posts from Rohit Sharma, former India batsman VVS Laxman as well as BCCI chief Anurag Thakur after India clinched the 5-match Test series 3-0.

“Big big congratulations to the boys and support staff for clinching the series. Home season so far has been brilliant,” Rohit Sharma tweeted.

Even Bhajji, who has controversially panned the spin-assisting tracks in the series, congratulated the team and off-spinner Ravichandran Ashwin.

Former India batsman VVS Laxman gave kudos to Kohli’s aggressive intent all through out the test, and posted on his Twitter handle: “Congratulations Team India on a emphatic win. Luv the approach of this team-positive,aggressive&determined. Keep it up boys #IndvsEng @BCCI.”

India’s No. 3 batsman Cheteshwar Pujara who has enjoyed good form in the series thus far, lauded the performance of his teammates but reminded them that the job was not finished just yet: “Great win boys, thoroughly enjoyed the series, one more to go guys @BCCI,” the Saurashtra Lad tweeted.
