India v England: Ravichandran Ashwin seals series win in Mumbai

England subsided to an innings-and-36-run defeat on the final day of the fourth Test in Mumbai as India swiftly sealed a series victory.

Resuming on 182-6 – still 49 behind – England’s final four wickets fell in 48 balls, with Ravichandran Ashwin taking 6-55 for match figures of 12-167.

It is only the third time a Test side have made 400 or more in their first innings and then lost by an innings.

India, 3-0 up with one match to play, have now won five consecutive series.

The world number ones are unbeaten in 18 matches at home, winning 15 of those in a run that dates back to England’s 2-1 series win in 2012.

For Alastair Cook’s side, a fourth defeat in five matches is their seventh of the year – their 12-month worst of eight losses could be equalled in the fifth and final Test, which begins in Chennai on Friday.
