India, led by the skipper Virat Kohli Clinch the series win against England during day 5 of the fourth Test match at the Wankhede Stadium, Monday in Mumbai. 32 minutes that’s how long England could last on Day 5, as India Won the fourth Test and clinched the Five Test series.

 

Spinner R Ashwin (6/5) ran through England’s lower order as Virat Kohli and co-won by the Mumbai Test by an innings and 36 runs. Two of India’s premier match- winners from the current unit, Ashwin and all-rounder in Tests, who claimed his Seventh 10-wicket haul, and skipper Kohli, who scored record-breaking 235 runs, played pivotal roles in India’s win at the Wankhede Stadium.

England, who were 6 down for 182 at stumps on Day 4, were banking on Jonny Bairstow to put up a fight to go past India’s lead. But Ashwin’s magic, which saw him claim all the four wickets on Day 5, was a bit too much for Bairstow, who could only add a run to his overnight score of 50.

While Butler remained unbeaten on 6, Ashwin, who now has 27 wickets in the series, got the better off Chris Woakes (0), Adil Rashid (2) and James Anderson (2). England who had lost the previous two test in Vizag and Mohali and needed a win here to keep alive the series scored 400 batting first. England skipper Alastair Cook did not hide the fact, saying: It was a game of missed opportunities again 400 on that wicket was a good score. 230 for two we had an opportunity to go a bit bigger than that but I thought 400 in those conditions was good and just above par.

India’s biggest win over England at home an innings 36 runs Victory in the fourth test at Wankhede Stadium. the previous record was an innings and 22 runs at Chennai in 1992-93.

Monday overall win was the second Biggest win aginst England. the innings and 46 runs win at Leeds in 2002 is India’s best ever aginst the Britishmen

If India wins the fifth test aginst England this will break the record of Most consecutive Tests without a losing. Wankhede Test was the 17th Test in the row in which India remained unbeaten. For Team India it is the second time to achieve this feat. First, it was achieved between September 1985 and March 1987, overall they could manage to win only win four out 17 matches drawing 12 while one tied. But Skipper Virat team has a much better record with 13 wins and Four draws. west indies hold the record of most Tests wins without defeat with 27 in a row.
