On a compelling, thrilling and competitive fourth day, captain Root was magnificent in making 109.
With Sam Curran, Jonny Bairstow, Dom Sibley and Dan Lawrence chipping in, England - who at one stage looked in danger of being beaten with a day to spare - reached 303 in their second innings, setting India 209 to win.
Pace bowler Jasprit Bumrah ran through the lower order with the second new ball to take 5-64 and finish with match figures of 9-110.
India were given an hour to bat and looked set to come through unscathed before Stuart Broad had KL Rahul caught behind for 26.
There was still time for Rohit Sharma to survive a tense England review as India closed on 52-1, needing another 157 for victory.
