India vs England Chennai Test | England win by 227 runs, India lose a home test after 4 years

Left-arm spinner Jack Leach captured four wickets to spin an in-form England to a huge 227-run win over host India in the first Test here, and took a crucial 1-0 lead in the four-match series.

A target of 420, with 381 left on a fifth day worn-out Chepauk track, was always a tough ask going by cricketing logic and Anderson’s mid-morning burst blew away the Indian middle-order.

Speedster James Anderson bagging three for 17.

In the end, the hosts could manage only 192 in 58.1 overs.

Virat Kohli was the top scorer with 72 off 104 balls. Young Shubman Gill chipped in with a 83-ball 50.

The second Test in Chennai on February 13.
