Team India won the last and final test at Chennai with little less than 30 minutes to spare. India beat England by an innings and 75 runs to win the series by 4-0 at The Chepauk Stadium in Chennai.

It was a Ravindra Jadeja show at Chennai as he picked up 7 wickets in the final two sessions of play including a superb catch to send Bairstow back. He was involved in 9 out of 10 English dismissals.

With this win, Indian skipper Virat Kohli has equaled the Indian record for remaining unbeaten in the most number of consecutive Tests (18). Kohli last lost a test match at Galle, on August 12 in 2015 and since then has been on an unbeaten run.

Team India after today’s win have also broken an even more significant record. The team’s win in this test was their 25th against England in 117 Tests. They have crossed the wins against Australia which was 24 before the start of the test match. This is significant as it is the record for the most number of Test matches won by India against any opposition in their long test history.

India has now beaten England in 25 Tests out of 117 played amongst them, which gives them a win ratio of 21% of Test match wins against England.
Team India’s worst record among top test playing nations is against arch rivals Pakistan against whom which they have just won 9 out of possible 59 games which include 12 losses.
