When James Anderson was trapped behind, Umesh Yadav, who took 3-60, cleaned up the tail.

Earlier in the contest, Rohit Sharma scored 127, his first Test hundred outside India, as the tourists amassed 466 in their second innings after giving up a 99-run first-innings advantage.

On Monday, India all-rounder Shardul Thakur, who missed the first Test due to a hamstring injury, smashed half-centuries in both innings and took England skipper Joe Root’s wicket.

The fifth Test begins on Friday at Old Trafford in Manchester.
