England beat India by seven wickets as they completed a record run chase to win the Covid-delayed fifth Test at Edgbaston on Tuesday.
England, set 378 to win, finished on 378-3 with Joe Root 142 not out and Jonny Bairstow 114 not out.

Victory saw England square the five-match series at 2-2.

No England side had previously made more to win in the fourth innings of a Test than their 359-9 against Australia at Headingley three years ago.
