Ind vs Eng, 5th Test: India thump England to complete 4-0 series win
Chennai: India saved the best for the last as a dramatic turnaround on the fifth day of the final in Chennai allowed the hosts to clinch the series 4-0.
England, which started the day at 12/0 on a pitch that hardly had any support for bowlers, were bowled out for 207 as India beat them by an innings and 75 runs. Indiaís fifth day charge was led by the left-arm spinner Ravindra Jadeja, who picked seven wickets on the final day.
English openers, Alastair Cook (49) and Keaton Jennings (54) put up a solid stand of 103 to guide the visiting team to lunch without losing a wicket. Things, however, changed in the second session as they lost four wickets before tea, with Jadeja picking three of them.
Indian bowlers went for a kill in the final session of the day as the English resistance crumbled to handover the victory to India.
England 207 all out!
WICKETS AND A 4-0 SERIES WIN! Jadeja it has to be and Jadeja it is. He completes a sensational day for him. 7 wickets with the ball, 2 catches off pacers. He has not put a foot wrong on the final day. India have completed an innings and 75-run win before the vocal Chepauk crowd.
England: 200/8 from 81 overs:

England: 193/6 from 74 overs
WICKETS! Five-wicket haul for Jadeja. He is all over England. First, Moeen Ali played a senseless shot and R Ashwin jumped at mid-on to hold on to a fine catch. Stokes departed in the next over bowled by Jadeja as the ball stopped on him a bit. India 4 wickets away from 4-0.
England: 167/4 from 64 overs
Tea! It's time for a break in Chennai. A fruitful session for India and especially Ravindra Jadeja, the spinner had hands in all the four wickets. It's still a very good wicket and would be difficult to bowl out the English team.
Moeen Ali (32) an Ben Stokes (13) are batting for the visiting team. We can expect an aggressive approach by Team India in the last session of the final day as they aim to take remaining six wickets to win the Test match.

Wicket! Jonny Bairstow, out caught by Jadeja off Ishant Sharma's bowling. Stunning catch by Jadeja. It was a full delivery and took a leading edge off Bairstow's bat, who tried to flick on the leg. Jadeja ran a long way to take the catch.
England: 126/3 from 50 overs
Out! Joe Root, out LBW off Jadeja's bowling. The big wicket is gone and it's Jadeja again.
England: 111/2 from 44 overs
Wicket! Jadeja strikes again and this time it is Jennings, caught and bowled. Good innings comes to an end. The batsman came down the pitch and tried to defend the fall, but ended up giving a catch to Jadeja. He clearly mistimed the shot.

England: 103/1 from 40 overs
Out! Alastair Cook, out caught by KL Rahul off Ravindra Jadeja's bowling. How often do we see this in Test cricket that a wicket falls immediately after the break. The skipper dismissed after lunch on 49, and India get the first breakthrough of the day.
Little reckless by Cook, the ball was pitched on the leg, he tried to flick it and ended up giving a catch to Rahul at leg slip. Good catch!
Chennai: English batsmen have shown smart application to survive the first session in Chennai on the fifth day of the final Test. They have added 85 runs and trail by 185 runs.

Chennai: Welcome to fifth and final day of play of the final Test between India and England in Chennai.
The visiting team finished the fourth day at 5/0 and trail India by 270 runs after Karun Nair smashed a mammoth 303 to become only the second Indian to score a triple ton.
The Karnataka batsman, who was playing his first Test series and only the third match in the longer format of the game, punished England bowlers as India amassed 759 runs to take a 282-run lead against Alastair Cook-led side.
While Karunís teammate at Karnataka and Team India, KL Rahul, missed out on a double ton on Sunday, the 25-year-old made sure he did not miss out on a golden opportunity to etch his name in the history books with a magnificent knock at Chepauk.
