India is going through an excellent winning streak as this series victory is the 5th consecutive series win for them. They beat Srilanka, West Indies, South Africa, New Zealand before beating England in this series. They made England down and out in every department in the whole series.
The hosts have won 13 matches out of 31 they played at this Ground in Chennai. While England played 8 matches here and won 3.

Kohli and team will surely have a psychological advantage coming into this match. But the English camp may well be in a different state of mind for the first time in the series. They already have lost the series, nothing to lose here. Hence the coach may ask the boys to go out there and play their natural game effortlessly without any pressure and expectation. That might bring a change of scenario for the visitors in the last match of the series.

Once again the spinners from the both side, Especially the Indian spinners are more likely to control the course of this last Test at the MA Chidambaram Stadium, Chennai. After this Test series, a 5 match ODI clash between these two teams is scheduled that will be starting on the 15th of January 2107.
