Resuming day four on 78-4, England lost three wickets in the morning before being dismissed in the post-lunch session.

Joe Root top-scored for the tourists with a defiant 78, while opener Haseeb Hamid, playing down the order after breaking his finger, remained not out on 59.

Off-spinner Ravichandran Ashwin was the pick of the home bowlers, claiming 3-81.

India lead the five-match series 1-0 with Mumbai hosting the next Test from December 8.
