Team India batsman Karun Nair struck an unbeaten 303 in just his third test innings, enabling India to post a gigantic total of 759 for seven, declared. Trailing by 282 runs, England got a solid start with Cook and Jennings putting up a 103 opening stand on the 5th day at the Chidambaram stadium in Chennai.
But what happened next was rather a miracle, as Sir Ravindra Jadeja put in a magical spell of 7/48, limiting the visitors to a mere 207 and guiding India to another spectacular victory.
India won by an innings and 75 runs and clinched the Test series 4-0.
Every Indian cricket fan is ecstatic on the social media. Here's what they have to say.
Greatest destruction of England by India since Akshay Kumar's speech in Namastey London.

18 Tests in row without being defeated - Unprecedented for India.
Beating team by innings after they got 400 twice - Unprecedented. Period.

England must wonder. Make 400 and lose. Then make 477 and lose. This test cricket is a great game....

How can you forget Piers?
Hey @piersmorgan , the number of gold medals India won in Rio are now finally equal to the number of test matches England won in this series

KP is in disbelief.
Cannot take Viru away.
And the captain himself.
