Drenched in champagne and surrounded by jubilant teammates, England captain Alastair Cook held his arms aloft and savored the feeling of winning a test series again.
   
It had been a while.
   


Following the humiliation of a 5-0 Ashes whitewash in Australia and the dejection of a last-gasp home series loss to Sri Lanka, England found itself 1-0 behind to India after two tests of a five-match series against India.
   
And Cook, whose own form with the bat was wretched, faced calls to resign.
   
"I'm quite stubborn, I believe in my ability and I'm a resilient guy -- that was when I needed it most," Cook said.
