"It is a great feeling, winning any Test in England is special. We had our chances in the first Test, but we won this one, we are really proud of how we played in this Test. It was a team effort, everyone contributed. It is a great start to the series, but there is a lot to play for. We are really proud of how we played in the first two Tests," Pujara said in a video posted on

On his 100-run partnership with Ajinkya Rahane, Pujara said: "The most important thing was to stay at the crease and see out good spells, we knew it would be easy to bat when the ball gets soft."

Talking about the win against England, vice-captain Rahane said: "This win means a lot to us, but this is just one Test, there are three more to go. We are not complacent, we just want to enjoy this win. I am really happy."

England battled hard, but its top order failures led to its downfall with the team being steamrolled for just 120 in the second innings, handing the visitor a win by 151 run thanks to Mohammed Siraj's four-wicket haul.
