Ben Stokes says England’s Test win over India is ‘greatest triumph’ since he became captain

Arvindn: This England Test team has to be one of the best sports teams in the world right now. They have transformed the sport over the last couple of years. Not many teams can say that. They are right up there with Chicago Bulls, Ferrari in F1, Manchester United under Sir Alex Ferguson, Roger Federer etc.

Dean in Cardiff: What makes this win so special is the management went with Hartley, and stayed with him even after the first innings suggested he was frankly way out of his depth. That sort of ability to stay the course, to have confidence in a player who was doubting himself, is why England won. That and the best overseas innings ever seen in India.

Matt: What a Test match victory that is! Backs to wall for part of it but absolutely class from England these last two days! Phenomenal victory in India, not easy to achieve.

Stevie: This England team can win from anywhere…and other teams know it as well. Stokes and McCullum have turned England into mentality monsters!

Lee in Camberley: 99.99% of pundits, ex-pros and fans criticised Stokes for the way he dealt with Hartley first innings. Shows how massively different that dressing room and Stokes’ and McCullum’s approach to the team is, and how it allows the players to flourish.
