India beat England by an innings and 75 runs in final test as Jadeja runs amok

Chennai: Ravindra Jadeja cast a magic spell to tear into England batting and help India win by an innings and 75 runs as the visitors were bundled out for 207 runs in their second innings on the last day of the fifth test match.

Jadeja, who claimed seven precious wickets, including those of the top order batsmen, gave away only 48 runs in his best performance in test cricket.

Thus India won the series by 4-0.

England had scored 477 in the first innings, but were put in a dire strait as India piled up a mammoth 759 for seven declared in reply which required the visitors to score 282 in the second innings to avoid an innings defeat.
