Virat Kohli and Jos Buttler have reacted to India’s dramatic ODI series victory over England.

Kohli said: ‘When two top teams battle against each other, you’re going to get very exciting games. That was the case again tonight.

‘We knew it was going to be a tough game and England weren’t going to throw in the towel at any stage, and that’s exactly what we saw at the end – Sam played a really good innings to keep them in the hunt.

‘Our bowlers kept taking wickets at the right periods during the second innings to just put enough pressure on them.’

Buttler added: ‘A fantastic game. Both sides made some mistakes throughout the game, but also played some brilliant cricket at times as well.

‘We’re indebted to an unbelievable innings from Sam Curran to nearly get us over the line, but congratulations to India for winning the series.

‘We’re disappointed. We’ve come here and we want to win. But there have been some great learnings for us – we’ve seen some guys stand up and take their opportunities.’
