England batting coach Graham Gooch was impressed with his side's seven-wicket win over India in Mumbai this weekend, but cautioned against assuming the series was in the bag as the final Test in Nagpur will be a tricky one.
England lead the series 2-1, coming back strongly after being destroyed in the first Test, and the former England batsman was rightly pleased with his side, but he said that the pitch for the last game would likely be the most difficult to play on yet.
Gooch said: "It was a monumental achievement. We know these conditions are sometimes alien to English players. We lost the first Test, we took a bit of a beating there, and in their conditions - India have set up the conditions in Mumbai and Kolkata - our guys have responded magnificently.
"Let's be fair, they've outplayed India in both the last two Tests. When you go 1-0 down against hosts who have a very good record in their own conditions, it's very satisfying when you can turn it round and use the skills you have practised long and hard to outplay the opposition.
"But I don't think for one minute that the guys think the job is done. We're 2-1 up with one to play. We want a positive result in Nagpur. I don't think I'm giving anything away by saying it's going to be a result pitch in Nagpur. If I was India I would want a result pitch to take my chances.
"The things MS Dhoni has said after Mumbai I totally agree with - he wants to play on pitches that produce results and I don't have a problem with that. I'd rather have a pitch that produces a result that one that produces 600 plays 600.
"So we know it's likely to be a pitch where it will be tough for the batsmen, with the ball turning. But after our last two performances we can go there with confidence and we've got to make sure we bring our A game to Nagpur."
Gooch was quick to praise the batsmen for getting their heads in the game at Eden Gardens, and though Alastair Cook was the star of the show with his 190 in the first innings, players like Kevin Pietersen, Jonathan Trott and Nick Compton all added fifties to the cause.
The coach added: "The guys have worked hard at their game. Our guys have a good work ethic. They've taken on board all the help they've been given about playing the turning ball and how to shape their technique.
"Credit to them, they've worked hard since the first training camp in Mumbai. All the work they've put in over a long period of time has now started to show rewards.
"We've got to make sure we carry that on in the next game and perform well there and come away from this country with our supporters being proud of the England cricket team."
Cook was reserved for the highest honours though, with Gooch singling the skipper out after his near-double ton, and for the various records he broke along the way, including his 23rd Test century and his fifth in as many games as captain.
He said: "He's always been an impressive young man, mature beyond his years. He works hard at his game. We've spent hours and hours in the nets over a long period of time and credit to him, he's the one who deserves to take the plaudits.
"He's worked hard at all types of his technique against spin, pace and swing bowling and he's had some low moments - as you do as a player - and now he's reaping the rewards for that hard work.
"We showed lots of character coming back, but Alastair is a character who tried to keep his feet on the ground in defeat or in success and when he does well or has a bad day. It's a good way to approach it. He's very level-headed.
"From the time he first came into the Essex professional set-up to the time he scored his first Test hundred, he has been very mature about his cricket. He knows exactly what he wants and he knows how to go about it. He works very hard and, generally, that's a winning combination.
"He has led this team really well. He's still learning as a captain and he'll continue to develop. He's only new to captaincy. He's had a good start, there'll be highs and lows along the way but he'll take them equally and move forward. English cricket is lucky to have a player like him at the head of their team."
