Indian spinning spearhead R Ashwin picked up five wickets and rattled the British batting lineup as the home side beat the visitors by an innings and 64 runs to clinch the series 4-1 in Dharamshala here on Saturday.

After bundling out England for 218, India were bowled out for 477 runs, taking a lead of 259 runs.

Riding on Ashwin's charismatic performance in the home series, India bundled out England for 195 runs in the fifth and final Test match of the series.

Ashwin received strong support from the other end as Jasprit Bumrah and Kuldeep Yadav picked up two wickets each to keep things tough for the visitors.

England rattled in the series as it progressed even though Ben Stoke's team commenced their India tour with a bang by beating Rohit Sharma's men in the opening match.

Joe Root scored 84 runs while Jonny Bairstow scored 39 to remain the top two scorers for England in the second innings.

Earlier, India were bowled out for 477 runs with Rohit Sharma scoring 103 runs while Shubman Gill contributed 110.

Devdutt Padikkal  (65) and Sarfaraz Khan (56) contributed with their willows, giving Indian selectors wider scope for selection in the upcoming series.
