India skipper Rohit Sharma marshalled his troops impeccably as the hosts outclassed England in the fifth and final Test in Dharamshala to win it comprehensively by an innings and 64 runs. In the process, Rohit Sharma and Co wrapped up the five-match Test series comfortably at 4-1. 

Speaking at the post-match presentation ceremony, Rohit Sharma broke his silence on one specific youngster about whom he had refrained from speaking much when quizzed earlier.

However, Rohit had previously said  "I don't want to talk too much about him" after winning the Rajkot Test.
