Legendary India cricketer Sachin Tendulkar feels that consistency was the major difference between the two sides after England beat India by 60 runs in the fourth Test at Rose Bowl to take an unassailable lead in the five-match series, on Sunday.

Tendulkar also hailed the hosts for playing good cricket during ‘crucial moments’ which in turn helped them take a 3-1 lead in the series.

The ‘Master Blaster’ took to social media to put his views across and his post read: “Congratulations to the England team! The consistency of their performances and playing crucial moments better resulted in a good series win. Best wishes to the Indian team for the final Test. #ENGvIND”

Chasing a tricky target of 245, India were bowled out for a paltry 184 on the fourth day on a pitch where survival wasn’t a problem but run-scoring definitely was.India have never chased a target of 200 plus outside the sub-continent in the past three decades and the script didn’t change this time round.
