England captain Alastair Cook was over the moon at winning his first series as full-time skipper, especially as it came in India where the Three Lions had not won a series in 28 years.
The fourth and final Test ended in a draw in Nagpur on Monday, giving England a 2-1 series win, and relegating India to their first home loss in eight years, and their first under captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni.
Cook, who was one of England's stand-out players, leading from the front with the bat, gave credit to Ian Bell and Jonathan Trott after their centuries in the final game, especially given the slow nature of the wicket.
Cook told Sky Sports 1: "It's a very special day for us, it's been a special tour and we'll have great memories. Today was a fantastic effort by Trotty and Belly. All right, it was a flat pitch, but how calmly they batted was fantastic.
"We were slightly surprised how low and slow the pitch was, and it got better as the game went on. We knew when we batted in the second innings we had to make it very hard to take those wickets so credit to our batsmen for fronting up and taking on that challenge."
England had to come back from a game down after losing the first Test, and the majority of the pundits didn't think this series would end in anything other that a win for the hosts. But Cook was proud of the way his side turned the series around so emphatically.
The skipper continued: "We didn't handle the Ahmedabad wicket as well but the others were all very different and we adapted well. The bowlers have been brilliant and our batters have contributed big runs.
"Everyone in the squad can be very proud, especially after Ahmedabad and that heavy defeat. The guys who played a couple of games all made a difference and the amount of effort the guys have put in for me, I can't ask any more.
"It's always nice when it goes well but I can't praise the team enough. And the support we've had everywhere we've gone, not just from the Barmy Army but also the Indian public, has been fantastic."
