Mr Cameron said their fantastic achievement was a “massive” team effort and he would remember England getting to number one for a long time to come.
I congratulate the England cricket team on their fantastic achievement. Their performance in this test, including England’s highest ever innings score in a non timeless test, and Alistair Cook’s magnificent 294, against the team that has up to now been ranked number one in the World, is a tribute to their domination of the sport.
It was a massive team effort, bowling India out twice for less than 250 and always being so sharp in the field. I watched the closing overs on the sofa at home and will remember the joy of the crowd at Edgbaston and England getting to number one in such style for a long time to come.
The whole nation can be very proud of our team of World beaters.
