India today crushed England in the fourth cricket Test by a whopping innings and 36 runs margin.
This is the first time in India that a visiting team has lost a Test match after scoring 400 runs in their first innings.
This is also the sixth successive series win under Virat Kohli having started the juggernaut in Bangladesh (1 Test) last year, followed by Sri Lanka (away), South Africa (home), West Indies (away), New Zealand (home) and now England.
Skipper Virat Kohli was adjudged the man of the match for his superb double century knock.
India and England will next play the fifth and final Test at Chennai starting on December 16.
