Alastair Cook insists he always thought England had the ability to hit back to beat India even after the disastrous second Test defeat to the tourists at Lord's.

Since that setback, which left India 1-0 ahead in the five-Test series, England have been superb, romping to big wins at Southampton, Old Trafford and The Oval.

England sealed a 3-1 success by crushing India by an innings and 244 runs in the fifth Test, cantering to victory inside three days.

Starting the third day 237 runs ahead, England added 101 runs in just 11.3 overs, with Joe Root finishing unbeaten on 149, before India were dismissed for just 94 inside 30 overs.

Cook said afterwards: "A five-match series gives you a chance to always come back. I had full faith in our ability, it was about stringing performances together.

"The guys have done that now. I don't think we have lost a session since Lord's. We have been fantastic. It is the start of a recovery. There are going to be a number of tough times ahead, but we have experienced a lot of tough times. Through that becomes the good times.

"Just because we won this series doesn't mean everything is all rosy. But it is a start. We keep re-emphasising that as a team. We will keep our feet on the ground."
