Spinners wrap up India's 246-run victory

India 455 (Kohli 167, Pujara 119, Anderson 3-62) and 204 (Kohli 81, Rashid 4-82) beat England 255 (Stokes 70, Bairstow 53, Ashwin 5-67) and 158 (Cook 54, Hameed 25, Jayant 3-30, Ashwin 3-52) by 246 runs
Scorecard and ball-by-ball details

India's bowlers required just 38.1 overs to wrap up a comprehensive 246-run victory on the final day of the second Test at Visakhapatnam, as England's resolve - fatally weakened by the loss of two wickets late on the fourth evening - was finally cracked with nothing but pride left to play for. The damage had been done in a frantic morning session in which they slumped for 87 for 2 to 142 for 7, and the tail succumbed meekly after lunch, with only Jonny Bairstow showing any real resistance with 34 not out.
