Shikhar Dhawan, who made a comeback after being dropped for the Lord's Test, posted a picture with teammate Murali Vijay to celebrate the famous win.
"Celebrating a good victory with a good mate!" Dhawan tweeted.
Virat Kohli's deputy Ajinkya Rahane, who stitched together a 159-run partnership with the skipper in the first innings, thanked the fans for standing by the team even when they were 0-2 down in the series.
"Satisfying feeling after a fantastic team effort! Will enjoy this win today and take it one game at a time. Thanks to all the fans who've stood by us," Rahane tweeted.
India's top-order batsman, Cheteshwar Pujara, who contributed with 86 runs in the match expressed his gratitude for being a part of a brilliant squad.
"A great win by the team! So thankful to be a part of this brilliant squad. Onto the next one," Pujara tweeted.
The win at Trent Bridge kept alive India's hopes of becoming just the second team, after a Don Bradman inspired Australia in 1936/37, to win a five-match Test series from 2-0 down.
It also represented a remarkable turnaround following their innings and 159-run loss in the second Test at Lord's.
The fourth Test at Southampton starts on August 30.
