England started the series well with a commanding win in the opening game with Joe Root paying a crucial rule. However, the visitor’s batting line-up faltered in the following three games as the Indians completely dominated all aspects to record a 13th consecutive series win at home.
India were the dominant team in the Tests, but now both teams will turn their attention towards the limited-overs format. India and England are set to face each other in a five-match T20I and three-game ODI series starting from March 12.
