India vs England LIVE: Test cricket result and reaction after Shubman Gill guides hosts to victory

India accomplished a nervy chase to secure a five-wicket victory against England in the fourth test on Monday and claim an unassailable 3-1 lead in the five-match series.

Chasing a modest 192 for victory, India cruised to 84 for no loss before the English spinners engineered a collapse that left the hosts reeling at 120-5. Shubman Gill (52) and Dhruv Jurel (39) combined in an unbroken stand of 72 for the sixth wicket to clinch India's victory on the penultimate day of the contest.

Off-spinner Shoaib Bashir claimed 3-79, to go with his five first innings wickets, but could not keep England alive in the series. The fifth and final test is scheduled to be played in Dharamsala from March 7. Follow all the latest reaction to today's match in the live blog below, and get the latest odds and tips here.

Sir Alastair Cook praises India and Shubman Gill

08:32 , Jack Rathborn

“Credit to India - they withstood the pressure,” Cook tells TNT Sports.

“Shubman Gill has got all the talent in the world but a knock like that in a big moment will do wonders for him going forward. He played the situation perfectly and Dhruv Jurel was very good at taking the pressure off him.

“England will be proud of how they went about it, they didn't miss any opportunities today, it was that second innings yesterday.”
