Virat Kohli-led India, on Monday, sealed an emphatic win over England in the fourth and penultimate Test to take an unassailable lead 3-0 in the series. Indian bowlers did not provide a good start on Day 1 as England were able to score more than 400 runs in the first innings. But their batsmen were quick to keep the visitors under check as led by the captain himself, they gained a lead of 231, which proved to enough as Ravichandran Ashwin and co. made a remarkable comeback in the next innings and bowled out England for just 195, winning the game by an innings and 36 runs.
Ashwin rose to the occasion once again as he grabbed yet another five-fer and ended the game with 12 wickets. Kohli too starred with the bat and scored his third double century this year. Not to forget the contribution of Jayant Yadav, who scored a century coming in at number nine.
To adjudge the performance of these players, here are the player ratings which will give you a clear idea about contribution of each player in this game –
