Moeen Ali is the Man of the Match

Kohli: Good opportunity to find out new things about your game. That is what I spoke to Jadeja as well. It's a situation, can't get better than that to find another aspect of your game. Specially in Test cricket, we have been a positive side and played for a result. To play against the momentum, it requires skill. It is very important to convince yourself that you can get through those tough periods. You trust your defence and trust that you can negotiate anything that is thrown at you. We could have been better on day one and day two. We dropped five catches and the opposition take the game away from you. England are a side that we are not taking for granted. Sometimes these things happen and good to not give away a result at the start of the series. They [spinners] bowled on the first two days, where the wicket was really good to bat on. Not taking anything away from the England bowlers, but with 540 on the board it's a different ball game. We need to correct the areas before going to Vizag. There are a lot of positives that we can take. Anything happen in Test cricket. We have the batting line up to score 500 and if we had scored, the opposition would have felt the pressure. Credit to England for applying in the second innings as well and as I said we are not taking them for granted.

Cook: Really tough five days. It was a good toss to win. In India if you get 530, you usually win. To keep them to 480, we bowled really well. The way Hass (Hameed) played in the second innings was unbelievable. There were only two chances to win. In the end, they held on. It was really flat for the first three days and turned more and more, but people managed to score runs. It turned for both left and right-handers. It's quite a case. Hopefully I can add to that. Brilliant knock. I thought the way he played, it was brilliant. I thought all our spinners bowled really well. Adil stepped up in this game. This is a game where all three of them can be proud of.

Rashid shakes hands with Kohli and the first Test between India and England ends in a draw.
