India suffered a massive 227-run defeat at the hands of England at the Chepauk Stadium in Chennai on Tuesday.

A dominant fourth innings bowling performance by England bowlers wrapped up the Indian innings with scoreboard reading only 192.

Despite a near-faultless innings of 72 from Virat Kohli, India’s chances were quashed by the loss of five wickets in the first session of Day 5.

India were chasing a target of 420 in the fourth innings on spinning Day 5 pitch, the Indian batting collapsed with Jack Leach and James Anderson wreaking havoc sharing seven wickets between them.

This was only India’s second defeat at home since their 2-1 series loss to England in late 2012.
