India beat England by an innings and 36 runs in 4th test match; Wins 5-match series 3-0
On the fifth day of 4th test match at Mumbai's Wankhede stadium, India defeated Englad by an innings and 36 runs. With this victory India has also won the five-match series 3-0. Chasing a lead of 231 runs, English batsmen surrendered before the celebrated off-spinner Ravichandran Ashwin.

Ashwin took 12 wickets in total in the fourth test match. In reply to England's 400 runs in their first innings, Indian batsmen scored 631 runs with the help of a superb double century by Captain Virat Kohli (235 runs), opener Murli Vijay's 136 runs and Jayant Yadav's 104 runs, who came to bat at number 9.

With a crucial lead of 231 runs in their hands, the Indian bowlers led by R. Ashwin never allowed the English batsmen to settle down. It was only number 3 batsman Joe Root, who was able to face the Indian bowlers and played a good 77-runs innings. Root's wicket was taken by Jayant Yadav who caught him in front of the wickets.

Apart from Root, the only other English batsman who showed some courage infront of the Indian bowlers was wicket-keeper bastmen Jonny Bairstow, who made 51 runs.

Jonny became the victim of star Indian bowler R. Ashwin. Apart from this important wicket, Ashwin got five more English batsmen out including Ben Stokes, Jake Ball, Chris Woakes, Adil Rashid and James Anderson. Spinner Ravindra Jadeja also got two wickets, while Bhuvneshwar Kumar got one. Umesh Yadav was not able to get any wicket in this match.
