James Anderson was the difference between India and England, says skipper MS Dhoni

Dhoni said his team made a few mistakes, including the loss of wickets in heap in the third game at Kolkata, but added there were a few positives too. "In Kolkata in one session we lost 6-7 wickets. It was very important to absorb pressure at that time. It's all about partnerships. On a flat wicket once you go in you are in some doubt but you become calmer as you play more.

Nagpur: India skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni on Monday said that pacer James Anderson's ability to reverse swing the ball in his second and third spells played a "crucial" role in England's historic 2-1 Test series win here after a gap of 28 years.

England sealed the series after the fourth and final Test ended in a draw at the VCA stadium in Jamtha.

"I felt Anderson bowled well throughout the series on wickets where there was not much help for the fast bowlers. That was very crucial," said Dhoni after the match.
