Joe Root: Exciting times for England after AgeasÂ Bowl victory
Joe Root toasted England's Test series victory over India but insisted: We're yet to hit our peak.
The hosts delivered a 60-run win on the fourth day at the Ageas Bowl and take an insurmountable 3-1 lead into the final match at the Oval.
Having been set 245 to win, Moeen Ali again proved the scourge of India with the ball.
He finished with match figures of nine for 144, claimingÂ the key wickets of captainÂ Virat Kohli (58) andÂ Ajinkya Rahane (51) as the tourists were all out for 184 in their second innings.
The series success againstÂ the world's number one-ranked Test team is Root's favourite since being appointed captain in February 2017.
But he believes his team still have room for improvement.Â
The skipper said: '˜It's definitelyÂ been the most enjoyable. I feel like I've had quite a big input in what has been going on and been in control of things.
'˜I've got a very clear vision long-term as a group and it's really exciting times for me and this team.
'˜The guys are willing to buy into that and are realistic and understanding where we could get to.
'˜It's a big step in the right direction for us and we can go from strength to strength from here.'
England were on the back foot during the afternoon sessionÂ when Kohli and Rahane shared a 101-run partnership.
But Root was alwaysÂ confident in his attack.
He added:Â '˜We always knew there was going to be a partnership at some stage and if we could stay calm, collected and stuck to what we wantedÂ to do then the wicket would do the rest.
'˜It's really pleasing under that sort of pressure.'
