Finn, who opened the bowling with James Anderson picked five crucial wickets in Ajinkya Rahane, Ambati Rayudu, Virat Kohli, MS Dhoni and Akshar Patel. He was well supported by Anderson, who dismissed four batsmen.
As a result of the stupendous show by their pacers, the Poms bowled India out for just 153 runs which they successfully chased down in 27.3 overs with nine wickets remaining.
England also registered their first win of the series after having suffered a 3-wicket defeat at the hands of the Aussies in the first match of the series.
The Eoin Morgan-led side will now lock horns with the Aussies on January 23.
