Delighted over India's 203 runs win over England at Trent Bridge, Indian cricket team coach Ravi Shastri said there is not a negative bone in the body and has the potential to become the best travelling side in the world.

While addressing a press conference after India's victory, Shastri said he is proud of the team as they competed and played well. 

"I am proud of the guys, they competed & played well. Bottom line with this team is that there is not a negative bone in the body, they believe they can win, their endeavour is to be the best travelling team in the world," Shastri said.

India were defeated in the first two Tests by England and would have lost the five-match series, had they lost this game. With this win India trail 2-1 against England. 

England, who were 311 runs for the loss of nine wickets at stumps on Day four, lost their last wicket within 15 minutes of the game opening on Day 5. The visitors took just 17 balls to take the wicket of James Anderson who had been batting with Adil Rashid.

Ace spinner Ravichandran Ashwin scalped Anderson who was caught behind the wicket. England were 317 all out in 104.5 overs.

Earlier, Virat Kohli, who was also awarded man of the match, dedicated this win to the Kerala flood victims and his wife Anushka Sharma.
