London: England batting coach Graham Gooch has credited his bowlers for keeping a "tried and trusted" Indian batting line-up under pressure throughout the four-match Test series, which the hosts have already won 3-0 to climb to the summit of world cricket.
England defeated India comprehensively in the first three Tests to dislodge them from the top of the ICC Test Championship table and achieve the numero uno status for the first time in the history of the game.
"England bowlers have kept pressure on Indian batsmen which has made it difficult for them to succeed," said Gooch, an outstanding batsman and captain in 80s and 90s.
"Theirs is a tried and trusted batting line-up, lot of greatest names the game has seen but then everyone struggles from time to time. They haven`t got the runs they would`ve liked.”
"They have kind of records most would be happy to have half those records. They have been great ambassadors of the game, they have excited the public all around the world," he said.
The English bowlers dominance in the series can be gauged from the fact that the famed Indian batting line-up have so far failed to cross the 300-run mark in the six innings they played.
