Murali Vijay, the local Chennai lad, is having a light moment with the groundsmen. He is congratulating them and also enjoying with them.

Ravindra Jadeja ends the match in style. Ends with 7/48, his best figures as he cleans up Stuart Broad and Jake Ball. India has won by an innings and 75 runs to clinch the series 4-0. Special effort from Jadeja and India has won. Sweet revenge for the hurt of 2011, 2012 and 2014.

England is known to hang in there till the last moment. Remember Cardiff 2009 against Australia? They Cape Town and Centurion against South Africa in 2009 and 2010. Matt Rrior’s long rearer against New Zealand in Auckland 2013 also comes into mind.

Umesh bowls four bouncers in the over, none of them dangerous enough to have Buttler playing. England is hanging in. Virat Kohli might be tempted to get Jadeja or Ishant back at the other end.

The physio is out there treating Stuart Broad for the blow which he suffered to his thigh in the last ball of Umesh Yadav’s over.

England is resorting to time-wasting tactics. It is not new for them. They did it in Cardiff 2009. Virat Kohli is not happy and he is standing next to the umpire.

Three slips in place for Umesh Yadav. India looking to break this stands as soon as possible.

Drinks and we are into the final hour of this series. India need only two wickets, England have to survive 13 overs or more. Looking at the way how spinners are running through their overs, they will be facing a lot more.

Broad padded up to the carrom ball as he selects to leave it, VIrat Kohli opts for the review but replays show that the impact was outside off. India loses a review.

Ashwin wants to share the new ball. He is getting big turn and bounce. India can sense it.

The second new ball was taken and Umesh Yadav strikes. Full ball on middle and leg and it straightens, Rashid looks to work it to mid wicket, gets a leading edge that is taken by Jadeja at point.
