On this day in 2016, India avenged their 0-4 defeat in 2011 beating England by the same margin after they won the fifth Test in Chennai by an innings and 75 runs.
Having won the toss, Alastair Cook would have hoped for some respite and when Moeen Ali’s 146 helped them post 477 on board, it looked like England finally had a score on board.
But much to their dismay, India responded with aplomb. KL Rahul scored a fluent 199 opening the batting. The worse though was yet to come for the touring side as Karun Nair became only the second Indian to record a triple ton as his unbeaten 303 took India to a massive 759/7 declared.
England began well on the final day to be 97 for 0 at lunch but lost the plot completely losing all ten wickets in a heap to get bowled out for 207, handing Ravindra Jadeja who took 7/48 in the second innings, his first 10-wicket haul in Test cricket.
While Karun Nair was deservedly the Man of the Match, it was Virat Kohli who was awarded Man of the series.
