Dhoni hit the winning runs for the hosts as they took a 2-1 lead in the five-match series.
"I think the bowlers did the job for us," he said. "It looked a good wicket, so it was important to take wickets with the new ball. All of them bowled well and, once the seamers went off, the spinners were really good.
"We batted well too - it was a really good performance by the whole team. We are gelling well as a unit. I think we'll take a lot of confidence from this game and we're looking forward to the next one."
India and England return to action in the fourth match of the series on Wednesday in Mohali.
