Indian orthodox spinner Ravindra Jadeja hammered the final nail in the coffin, claiming seven wickets to help India beat England by an Innings and 75 runs to clinch the five-match Test series by 4-0 on Tuesday.
Alongside the star spinner, pacers Ishant Sharma and Umesh Yadav contributed in the bowling attack, claiming one wicket each. Leg-spinner Amit Mishra dismissed Liam Dawson for duck to join the carnival.
Trailing India by 282 runs, England openers Alastair Cook (49) and Keaton Jennings (54) started aggressively with a 103-run partnership.
Post their dismissals, Moeen Ali also stood on crease for a while, scoring 44 runs, however, he too lost his wicket to the mighty spinner Jadeja.
No other batsmen impressed much in England’s second innings as six of their batsmen were dismissed for a single-digit score.
Earlier in the Indian innings, Karun Nair’s gigantic 303 (not out) following KL Rahul’s remarkable 199 runs were the most cherished moments of the Chennai Test.
With this victory, Indian Test skipper Virat Kohli completed record unbeaten streak of 18 Tests.
Nair was awarded the Man of The Match for his gloroius triple ton, while Kohli was bestowed with the Man of the Series award for his consistent batting throughout the series. Kohli scored 655 runs in five Test matches, that includes his impressive 235-run knock in the fourth Test at Mumbai.
"It's an amazing feeling when you contribute to winning a match, so hats off the to team. Everyone congratulated me but we were more focused on winning the match. There's a lot to learn, I've been learning each day, working hard on my game," Nair said in the post-match press conference.
