Jurel hit 90 in the first innings and followed it up with a handy 39 that included a 72-run unbeaten partnership with Shubman Gill. Kuldeep too weighed in as he scalped 4/22 in the England's second innings as India were set a target of 192 to claim a series win.

Jurel's knock was the defining moment in the Test match as it turned the tide in India's favour, giving them a 46-run deficit.

Earlier, India defeated England by five wickets in the fourth Test to seal their 17th straight series win at home on Monday. Resuming day four at 40 for no loss, India survived some anxious moments before chasing down the 192-run target in the afternoon session.

India have now taken an unassailable 3-1 lead in the five-match series with the final game to be played in Dharamsala from March 7. The unbeaten 72-run stand between Shubman Gill (52 not out off 124 balls) and Dhruv Jurel (39 not out off 77) helped India get over the line following a middle-order collapse.

The fifth and final Test match starts on March 7 in Dharamsala.

England: 353 and 145

India: 307 and 192/5 in 61 overs (Rohit Sharma 55, Shubman Gill 52 not out, Dhruv Jurel 39 not out, Yashasvi Jaiswal 37; Shoaib Bashir 3/79).
