2nd Test stats: India’s biggest win over England by runsChennai, Feb 16 (IANS) India recorded their biggest ever Test win against England in terms of runs on Tuesday when they beat Joe Root’s team by 317 runs in the second match at the M.A. Chidambaram Stadium.

Overall, against all comers, India’s 337-run win over South Africa in Delhi during the 2015-16 series is the biggest, followed by the 321-run win over New Zealand in Indore in 2016-17. This is followed a 320-run win over Australia in Mohali in the 2009-09 series after which comes a 318-run win over West Indies in North Sound, Antigua, in 2019.
