England win by 118 runs

India will have only pride to play for after going down in the fourth Test and losing the five-match series 1-3 against England who will see former captain Alastair Cook don the white flannels for the last time, in the fifth and final Test at The Oval here on Friday.
The final match might only be of academic interest but India skipper Virat Kohli will want to finish on a high nonetheless.
Head coach Ravi Shastri, on Tuesday, rated the team the "best travelling side in last 15 years", although being factually incorrect.
India under Sourav Ganguly drew a Test series in England (2002) and Australia (2003-04) apart from winning a Test in the West Indies and a series in Pakistan.
Under Rahul Dravid, India won two series in the West Indies (2006) and England (2007) apart from winning a Test in South Africa.
When Anil Kumble was made the captain, India bagged a Test match win in Perth for the first time and under Mahendra Singh Dhoni, the team won a series in New Zealand and also for the only time drew a series in South Africa.
Kohli and Co. on the contrary have failed to win a series in South Africa followed by the ongoing debacle in England.
India have retained the number one Test ranking despite series losses overseas where their batting frailties have time and again been exposed and bowling, although, doing well, have failed to put up a winning show.
India's team selection has been an eye-sore too starting from the South Africa tour with a lot of decisions raising more than an eyebrow. 
The lack of consistency in the top order has affected the team balance with a number of players not being among runs.
Now with only pride to play for, India might opt for India's U-19 World Cup winning captain Prithvi Shaw to open the batting along with Lokesh Rahul or Shikhar Dhawan. Both Dhawan and Rahul have failed to make a mark in the series and Murali Vijay has already been sent home before the fourth Test.
The other player brought in is Hanuma Vihari who besides being a middle-order bat, is also a handy spinner. All-rounder Hardik Pandya has been off-colour with the bat and the team management could think of the road ahead and give Vihari a chance.
Coming to the bowling department, pacer Jasprit Bumrah could be rested keeping in view the Asia Cup beginning next week in the United Arab Emirates.
The pacer, along with Shardul Thakur, is part of India's limited-overs' squad and as such Umesh Yadav could make a comeback into the Test side.
For England, this Test will revolve around Cook who called time on his illustrious career recently. Pace ace James Anderson or Stuart Broad could be rested in the light of their workloads, as Chris Woakes is fit again and available for selection.
Teams: India: Shikhar Dhawan, Lokesh Rahul, Cheteshwar Pujara, Virat Kohli (c), Ajinkya Rahane, Hanuma Vihari, Rishabh Pant (wk), Ravindra Jadeja, Ishant Sharma, Mohammed Shami, Jasprit Bumrah

95.3 OUT! Bowled. James Anderson to Mohammed Shami. Seaming in length ball, off stump on the front foot working, missed to. Bowled him! Nips back and knocks middle stump clean out of the ground. Jimmy Anderson becomes the all-time leading wicket taker as a seam bowler in test cricket, but its Alastair Cook who leads England off as a wonderful test career comes to an end. England take a gripping test series 4-1, a scoreline which perhaps doesnt quite tell how closely fought these five test matches have been. That will be that from the Oval, it took longer than many expected but thanks to Cooks runs and that final wicket from Anderson England win the test match on the final day of the international summer. I hope you have all enjoyed it, thats all for now, goodnight.

94.4 OUT! Caught. Sam Curran to Ravindra Jadeja. Out-swinging length ball, outside off stump on the front foot defending, outside edge in the air uncontrolled to first slip, by Bairstow. Gone! Good take from Bairstow and excellent bowling from Curran, shaping the ball away from the left-hander and constantly asking questions. Jadeja drawn into playing this one and it does just enough to take the outside edge, lovely stuff.
94.3 FOUR! Sam Curran to Ravindra Jadeja. Out-swinging half volley, to leg on the front foot flick, well timed in the air under control past deep mid wicket for 4 runs. On the pads and flicked away instinctively by Jadeja.

93.5 FOUR! James Anderson to Ravindra Jadeja. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot pushing, inside edge past fine leg for 4 runs. That cant have missed leg stump by much! Jadeja feels for one looking to get himself a single to get down the other end and he gets an inside edge. Somehow it misses leg stump and runs away for four.

92.6 OUT! Caught. Verified by umpire after REFERRAL. Sam Curran to Ishant Sharma. In-swinging length ball, off stump on the front foot defending, outside edge to wicketkeeper, by Bairstow. Gone! Curran finds the outside edge and India are eight down. Lovely ball, threatening to swing back but then just holding its line across Sharma who never gets far forward. Hold on though, Sharma has reviewed. Not sure why, huge spike on UltraEdge with the ball right on the edge of the bat. I think he was the only man in the ground who thought that wasnt out.

87.3 James Anderson to Ravindra Jadeja. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot defending, outside edge in the air uncontrolled to first slip for no runs, dropped catch by Bairstow. Tough chance for Bairstow behind the stumps. Great bowling from Anderson who still needs one more wicket to go ahead of Glenn McGrath and become the all-time leading wicket taker as a fast bowler in test cricket. It might not have carried to Cook at first slip so Bairstow had to go and he just managed to get an outstretched left glove to it but couldnt hold on.

84.6 OUT! Caught. Adil Rashid to Rishabh Pant. Googly length ball, outside off stump on the front foot driving, thick edge in the air uncontrolled to deep extra cover, by Ali. That was coming. Pant looks very disappointed but it did look like he was going to make a mistake against Rashid and thats why England kept bowling him. Thats the first time Rashid has landed the googly in just the right spot and the ball turning away from him caused the thick outside edge that led to his downfall. An easy catch in the deep for Moeen Ali.

82.5 Adil Rashid to Rishabh Pant. Leg spinner length ball, outside off stump on the front foot reverse sweeping, hit pad to silly point for no runs, fielded by Stokes.

Pant on the attack with a big sweep. The ball turns sharply and hits him before looping up to Bairstow. England appeal for a catch but it didnt quite look right. I think they would have reviewed had they any left judging by Roots reaction but it wouldnt have done them any good, missed both bat and glove.

82.2 Adil Rashid to Ravindra Jadeja. Leg spinner length ball, wide outside off stump on the front foot, Left to wicketkeeper for no runs, fielded by Bairstow.
82.1 OUT! Bowled. Adil Rashid to Lokesh Rahul. Leg spinner length ball, wide down leg side on the back foot working, hit pad to. Bowled him! Sharp spin from the footholes outside leg stump and England finally have a wicket! That is why England havent taken the new ball yet. Rahul went back and was looking to work the ball legside to go to 150 but it turned miles, flicking his back pad and taking off the off bail.

Two wickets in the session for England but Rahul stole the show with some marvellous strokeplay to move onto 108*. He has scored quickly too. Five more needed for England.

44.6 SIX! Moeen Ali to Rishabh Pant. Off break length ball, outside off stump down the track Slog, well timed in the air under control over long on for 6 runs. After a series of blocks Pant uses his feet and takes one hand off the bat as he dispatches the ball way back over a wide long on position. All or nothing stuff from Pant.

43.4 FOUR! Ben Stokes to Lokesh Rahul. Short, outside off stump on the back foot pulling, past fine leg for 4 runs. A sort of paddle pull from Rahul, off the ribs and between the two men back on the boundary. Everything has been short from Stokes so Rahul is ready and waiting. Will he try the yorker?

41.6 FOUR! Ben Stokes to Lokesh Rahul. Back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot cutting, well timed past long off for 4 runs. That will be 100 for Rahul! Hes played some fantastic strokes and raced through the 90s! Short and wide and he smashed it flat-batted through the vacant mid-off region. He does look a good player. Thats four test centuries outside of India now for Rahul.
41.5 Ben Stokes to Lokesh Rahul. Short, outside off stump ducked, Left to wicketkeeper for no runs, fielded by Bairstow.
41.4 Ben Stokes to Lokesh Rahul. Short, outside off stump ducked, Left to wicketkeeper for no runs, fielded by Bairstow.

41.1 SIX! Ben Stokes to Lokesh Rahul. Short, outside off stump backing away cutting, well timed in the air under control over deep cover for 6 runs. Wow! After patiently ducking the short ball for most of last over Rahul gives himself some room and crashes this away over cover for six! He moves into the 90s and also into T20 mode!
Over 40. 9 runs. Bowler: Moeen Ali. India: 5-138(rr 3.45)

40.4 FOUR! Moeen Ali to Lokesh Rahul. Off break length ball, outside off stump on the front foot sweeping, past deep square leg for 4 runs. The conventional sweep this time and hit hard. Thats the shot that Rahane was trying to play when he got out but Rahul has nailed it.
40.3 FOUR! Moeen Ali to Lokesh Rahul. Off break length ball, outside off stump on the front foot reverse sweeping, past third man for 4 runs. Great hands from Rahul. There is a lot of hockey played in India and I wonder if Rahul used to play as a youngster, the transferable skills making him good at the reverse sweep.
40.2 Moeen Ali to Lokesh Rahul. Off break length ball, outside off stump on the back foot defending, to short extra cover for no runs, fielded by Buttler.

38.5 FOUR! Moeen Ali to Rishabh Pant. Off break back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot flick, past deep mid wicket for 4 runs. Too short from Moeen and Pant uses his wrists well to generate some power and hit the ball through mid-wicket.

38.3 Moeen Ali to Lokesh Rahul. Off break length ball, outside off stump on the back foot working, to backward square leg for 1 run, fielded by Jennings. Rahul is getting some attention here, he looks like he has some discomfort in his back after attempting that last sweep.

38.1 Moeen Ali to Lokesh Rahul. Off break half volley, outside off stump on the front foot driving, to deep cover for 2 runs, fielded by Rashid.

37.5 Ben Stokes to Rishabh Pant. Back of a length, down leg side on the back foot defending, to silly point for no runs, fielded by Broad.
37.4 OUT! Caught. Ben Stokes to Hanuma Vihari. Short, outside off stump on the back foot defending, Gloved in the air uncontrolled to wicketkeeper, by Bairstow. And the plan pays off immediately! Excellent work from Root and Stokes. The batsmen do not look comfortable facing this well-directed short pitched bowling from Stokes and this one flicks the glove on its way through to Bairstow. Vihari has a duck in his second test innings. Incidentally he could easily have had one in the first innings too had England reviewed an LBW. India struggling now.
37.3 Ben Stokes to Hanuma Vihari. Short, outside off stump on the back foot working, hit body to short leg for no runs, fielded by Stokes.
37.2 Ben Stokes to Hanuma Vihari. Short, outside off stump ducked, Left to wicketkeeper for no runs, fielded by Bairstow.
37.1 Ben Stokes to Lokesh Rahul. Back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot defending, outside edge in the air uncontrolled to third man for 1 run, fielded by Jennings. A bit of bounce for Stokes straight away as he bends his back and bowls the ball into the pitch. Theres only one slip though and hes quite wide at second or third. It looks like Stokes is going to bowl short and fast.

36.3 OUT! Caught. Moeen Ali to Ajinkya Rahane. Off break length ball, outside off stump on the front foot sweeping, top edge in the air uncontrolled to mid wicket, by Jennings. Moeen gets the breakthrough! Rahane looking to fetch the ball from wide outside off and sweep but getting it on the toe end of the bat. The ball lobbed up into the legside to Keaton Jennings who took the easiest of catches at mid-wicket. There was no man back on the sweep, almost offering the shot to Rahane but Moeen got the better of him on this occasion.
36.2 Moeen Ali to Lokesh Rahul. Off break length ball, outside off stump on the front foot sweeping, to backward square leg for 1 run, fielded by Curran.

35.4 FOUR! Sam Curran to Ajinkya Rahane. Half volley, outside off stump on the front foot flick, well timed past deep square leg for 4 runs. Good wrists from Rahane as runs continue to flow for India. Mind you they still need 349 to win.
35.3 Sam Curran to Ajinkya Rahane. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot working, to mid wicket for no runs, run save by Stokes.
35.2 Sam Curran to Ajinkya Rahane. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot defending, to mid off for no runs, fielded by Anderson.
35.1 Sam Curran to Ajinkya Rahane. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot dropped, to point for no runs, fielded by Ali. Rahane sent back by Rahul, not for the first time either.

34.4 FOUR! Moeen Ali to Lokesh Rahul. Off break length ball, outside off stump on the front foot sweeping, past fine leg for 4 runs. Another boundary for Rahul as he continues to play positive cricket. A paddle sweep or scoop this time as he helps the ball over his shoulder.

34.2 Moeen Ali to Lokesh Rahul. Off break length ball, outside off stump down the track defending, to silly mid off for no runs, fielded by Ali.

32.6 Moeen Ali to Lokesh Rahul. Off break length ball, outside off stump on the front foot defending, to short leg for no runs, fielded by Cook. Rahul looking to go after Moeen straight away in that over but there were plenty of warning signs for him there that it wont be easy with the amount of turn out of the rough.
32.5 Moeen Ali to Lokesh Rahul. Off break half volley, outside off stump on the front foot pushing, to silly mid on for no runs, fielded by Ali.
32.4 APPEAL! Verified by umpire after REFERRAL. Moeen Ali to Lokesh Rahul. Off break length ball, outside off stump moves in front working, hit pad to short leg for no runs, appeal made for L.B.W. Close! Rahul on the move across his stumps and that ball really did stay down, hitting him low. Given not out but England want to see it again. The main question here is probably going to be impact. Its fully outside so Rahul will survive and England will lose the review.
32.3 Moeen Ali to Lokesh Rahul. Off break half volley, outside off stump on the front foot pushing, to silly mid on for no runs, fielded by Ali.
32.2 Moeen Ali to Lokesh Rahul. Off break length ball, outside off stump on the front foot pushing, mis-timed in the air uncontrolled to mid on for no runs, fielded by Anderson.

31.5 FOUR! Sam Curran to Ajinkya Rahane. Length ball, outside off stump down the track driving, well timed past deep extra cover for 4 runs. This time Rahane gets it through the gap between Buttler and Anderson in the offside. Again a little shuffle of the feet from Rahane means hes a long way down at the point of impact.
31.4 Sam Curran to Ajinkya Rahane. Length ball, to leg on the front foot defending, to short mid wicket for no runs, fielded by Ali.
31.3 Sam Curran to Ajinkya Rahane. Half volley, outside off stump on the front foot driving, well timed to extra cover for no runs, run save by Buttler.

28.6 Stuart Broad to Ajinkya Rahane. In-swinging half volley, outside off stump on the front foot pushing, to deep extra cover for 2 runs, fielded by Anderson. No breakthrough thus far for England. The ball has beaten the outside edge on occasion but there have been no serious alarms for the Indian pair despite cloudy overhead conditions. Its starting to look like it may be the spinners who are needed to break the back of this Indian middle order.
28.5 Stuart Broad to Ajinkya Rahane. In-swinging length ball, outside off stump down the track pushing, to mid off for no runs, fielded by Anderson.

27.5 Sam Curran to Ajinkya Rahane. Seaming away length ball, middle stump on the front foot pushing, missed to wicketkeeper for no runs, fielded by Bairstow.

With his usual shape being the inswinger Rahane has had his outside edge beaten twice as he waits to see if the ball will shape back in.
27.4 Sam Curran to Ajinkya Rahane. Seaming away back of a length, to leg on the front foot defending, missed to wicketkeeper for no runs, fielded by Bairstow.

24.3 FOUR! Stuart Broad to Lokesh Rahul. Half volley, outside off stump on the front foot driving, well timed past deep cover for 4 runs. Pitched up looking for some shape in the air but Rahul is equal to it, driving nicely square of the wicket. He was playing away from his body though so England may not be too discouraged by that shot.
24.2 Stuart Broad to Lokesh Rahul. Short, outside off stump on the back foot defending, to silly mid on for no runs, fielded by Rashid.

22.6 Stuart Broad to Ajinkya Rahane. In-swinging length ball, outside off stump on the front foot glancing, hit pad past fine leg for 4 runs. Similar to the previous delivery. Cries of catch and I thought it had come off Rahanes bat but its four more leg byes.

19.6 FOUR! James Anderson to Lokesh Rahul. Out-swinging length ball, middle stump on the back foot working, past deep mid wicket for 4 runs. And for the first time this series an Indian opener reaches 50.

18.6 Welcome back to the Oval for the last day of the international summer and the last day in the international career of Englands all-time leading runscorer. England need seven more wickets to win and with the way Broad and Anderson bowled last night and the assistance from the pitch for spin you have to fancy them to take them before too long. Rahul was aggressive last night and batted well and any hopes India may have of somehow salvaging a draw in this match will rest mainly on him and Rahane who has been at the crease with him for over an hour. So its the end of an era here at the Oval today, I hope you enjoy it.

There are a lot more fielders in the slips than the covers so theres nobody there to stop that. Rahul has played some nice shots so far, with the ball not shaping quite as much in the air hes seizing any opportunity to score. England I think will still fancy their chances of getting him out though.

5.3 APPEAL! Verified by umpire after REFERRAL. James Anderson to Lokesh Rahul. Seaming in length ball, outside off stump on the front foot defending, hit pad to first slip for no runs, by Cook, appeal made for Caught. Big appeal! Cook catches the ball at first slip and they appeal some more, but not out says Joel Wilson. England review, I suppose partly because they have two chances of a wicket here, caught or LBW. Its missed the inside edge, confirmed by UltraEdge but they will check the LBW. Impact is in line but its going over the top, the two noises were front then back pad. Excellent decision by Joel Wilson, England lose the review.
5.2 FOUR! James Anderson to Lokesh Rahul. Back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot driving, thick edge in the air uncontrolled past third man for 4 runs. Rahul goes hard at this and the ball flies up and over gully to the boundary. England wont mind him playing his shots as it certainly keeps them interested.

4.2 OUT! Caught. Stuart Broad to Virat Kohli. Seaming away length ball, outside off stump on the front foot defending, outside edge in the air uncontrolled to wicketkeeper, by Bairstow. Out! First ball! Virat Kohli is gone too! Fantastic scenes for England here. What a day of cricket this crowd have seen here today. Just a feather through to Bairstow. Kohli didnt need to play that, it was well wide of off stump but after a long toil in the field and a long tour of England you can understand the error of judgement. India are two for three!
4.1 Stuart Broad to Lokesh Rahul. Length ball, off stump on the front foot working, to fine leg for 1 run, fielded by Curran.

3.6 OUT! L.B.W. James Anderson to Cheteshwar Pujara. Seaming in length ball, off stump on the front foot defending, hit pad to second slip. Gone! Gone! Gone! Full and straight again from Anderson and that is LBW! What a bowler this man is. Anderson targeting the stumps and looking for seam movement rather than swing and its done for Pujara. Just nips back slightly and smacks into the front pad. It looks out, its given out, that is out. Again there is a discussion, eventually Pujara makes the signal to review, but hes told its too late, the 15 seconds are up. In fact that actually saved India from losing a review, three reds on Hawk-Eye.
3.5 James Anderson to Cheteshwar Pujara. Length ball, middle stump on the front foot pushing, hit pad to silly point for no runs, fielded by Anderson. Half a shout for LBW but angling down the legside.
3.4 James Anderson to Cheteshwar Pujara. Length ball, middle stump on the front foot working, to square leg for no runs, fielded by Ali.
3.3 OUT! L.B.W. James Anderson to Shikhar Dhawan. Half volley, off stump on the front foot flick, hit pad to silly point. Dhawan has got it all wrong here, hes played all round a straight one, getting his front leg too far across and falling over. Anderson went really full and straight and that looked absolutely plumb. Dhawan walked down to discuss with his partner but to his credit Rahul convinced him not to review.
3.2 James Anderson to Shikhar Dhawan. Back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot pushing, to silly mid off for no runs, fielded by Anderson.

This time he cant get to the pitch and its straight up in the air, a very easy catch for Pant with the gloves on. And with that Joe Root signals the declaration. Off trot the Indian openers who will be facing a well rested English bowling attack on a pitch that is still doing plenty, especially for the spinners. England will be hoping to snare a few wickets this evening, they have 108 overs left in the game to bowl India out.
113.2 SIX! Hanuma Vihari to Sam Curran. Off break length ball, outside off stump down the track Slog, in the air under control over long off for 6 runs. Puts away the reverse sweep and opts to use his feet instead. It pays off too as Curran whacks it into the stands.

What a fantastic morning for England and Alastair Cook. His efforts not only today, but throughout his entire career are being applauded by a good crowd in at the Oval. India have bowled poorly this morning, they havent managed to take a wicket and England scored runs freely. For the first time they are starting to look like a beaten side at the end of a long tour. They werent helped by the fact that Ishant Sharma left the field this morning after just one over, complaining of pain in his ankle. Root will want to reach his own personal milestone then crack on with building this lead before having a go at the Indian top order later today.

This ball does drift and drops but doesnt spin as much as Vihari expected and he gets a little feather through to the keeper.

51.2 Ben Stokes to Ravindra Jadeja. In-swinging length ball, outside off stump on the back foot defending, to silly mid on for no runs, fielded by Curran.
51.1 Ben Stokes to Hanuma Vihari. In-swinging back of a length, outside off stump on the front foot working, to fine leg for 1 run, fielded by Rashid.

49.6 FOUR! Ben Stokes to Ravindra Jadeja. Out-swinging half volley, outside off stump no foot movement driving, thick edge past third man for 4 runs. Not very convincing but Jadeja is off the mark with a boundary.

49.4 Ben Stokes to Ravindra Jadeja. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot, Left to wicketkeeper for no runs, fielded by Bairstow.
49.3 OUT! Caught. Ben Stokes to Rishabh Pant. Out-swinging length ball, outside off stump on the front foot defending, outside edge to first slip, by Cook. Another catch in the slips, Pants innings is a short one as England continue to cause carnage under floodlights. The left-hander went at this with hard hands, overbalancing as he looked to get forward. That means it carries at a lovely catching height for Cook, to take him to 175 Test catches. Damage being done late in the day, just like yesterday.
49.2 FOUR! Ben Stokes to Rishabh Pant. In-swinging half volley, to leg on the front foot flick, well timed past fine leg for 4 runs. Thats a very friendly delivery, every batsman worth his salt is capable of putting that one to the fence. Pant gets his first boundary of the day.
49.1 Ben Stokes to Rishabh Pant. Out-swinging length ball, outside off stump on the front foot defending, missed to wicketkeeper for no runs, fielded by Bairstow.
Over 48. 2 runs. Bowler: Sam Curran. India: 5-156(rr 3.25)

47.2 OUT! Caught. Ben Stokes to Virat Kohli. Out-swinging length ball, outside off stump on the front foot driving, outside edge to second slip, by Root. Theres the big scalp England wanted, Ben Stokes is the man to do the business. India are five down now and looking in bother with the captain having to depart. Its been a hectic little period of play and Kohli wants to keep up the scoring, but this nibbles away enough to take the edge. Root accepts it comfortably to spark huge celebrations at The Oval.
47.1 Ben Stokes to Virat Kohli. Out-swinging length ball, outside off stump on the front foot, Left to wicketkeeper for no runs, fielded by Bairstow.
Over 46. 10 runs. Bowler: Sam Curran. India: 4-154(rr 3.35)
46.6 FOUR! Sam Curran to Hanuma Vihari. Out-swinging half volley, off stump on the front foot driving, well timed past long off for 4 runs. Thumped down the ground, thats the most authoritative shot weve seen from the young man. Beautiful way to bring up the half century stand.
46.5 Sam Curran to Hanuma Vihari. Out-swinging length ball, outside off stump on the front foot pushing, missed to wicketkeeper for no runs, fielded by Bairstow.
46.4 APPEAL! Sam Curran to Hanuma Vihari. Out-swinging half volley, outside off stump on the front foot driving, missed to wicketkeeper for no runs, by Bairstow, appeal made for Caught. England get excited for a moment but the noise was bat hitting ground.

46.2 Sam Curran to Hanuma Vihari. In-swinging length ball, to leg on the front foot working, to fine leg for 1 run, fielded by Broad.
46.1 FOUR! Sam Curran to Hanuma Vihari. In-swinging back of a length, to leg on the back foot glancing, well timed past fine leg for 4 runs. A more conventional boundary this time for the debutant as he tucks one neatly off his hip. India are eating away at the deficit.
Over 45. 11 runs. Bowler: Ben Stokes. India: 4-144(rr 3.20)
45.6 Ben Stokes to Hanuma Vihari. In-swinging length ball, off stump on the front foot working, to deep backward square leg for 1 run, fielded by Ali.
45.5 FOUR! Ben Stokes to Hanuma Vihari. Short, outside off stump on the back foot pulling, top edge in the air uncontrolled past fine leg for 4 runs, mis-fielded by Rashid. Another top edge, Vihari looks all at sea against the short ball here. Rashid sprints in from fine leg to try and get there on the full, but it drops tantalisingly short and scurries away for four. Stokes is not amused.
45.4 Ben Stokes to Hanuma Vihari. Back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot defending, to short leg for no runs, fielded by Jennings.
45.3 Ben Stokes to Hanuma Vihari. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot driving, back to bowler for no runs, fielded by Stokes.
45.2 Ben Stokes to Hanuma Vihari. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot defending, to backward point for no runs, fielded by Buttler.
45.1 SIX! Ben Stokes to Hanuma Vihari. Short, outside off stump on the back foot pulling, top edge in the air uncontrolled over fine leg for 6 runs. This might not be the way Vihari imagined getting his first boundary in Test cricket but hell have to take it. Stokes tests out the middle of the pitch and the young man takes him on unconvincingly. The ball soars off the top edge and towards an England fielder, but its Ollie Pope the substitute way over the rope.
Over 44. 14 runs. Bowler: Sam Curran. India: 4-133(rr 3.02)
44.6 Sam Curran to Virat Kohli. Out-swinging length ball, to leg on the front foot working, to deep mid wicket for 2 runs.

44.3 FOUR! Sam Curran to Virat Kohli. Full toss, outside off stump on the front foot driving, well timed past deep cover for 4 runs. Thats a juicy full toss, a poor start to the spell for Curran as Kohli dispatches him for a second successive four. India just need this partnership to blossom.
44.2 FOUR! Sam Curran to Virat Kohli. In-swinging half volley, middle stump on the front foot flick, well timed past deep mid wicket for 4 runs. Curran, young and impatient, goes for the magic ball but Kohli is balanced and whips it nonchalantly.
44.1 Sam Curran to Virat Kohli. Back of a length, off stump on the back foot Steer, to third man for 2 runs, fielded by Ali.
Over 43. 1 run. Bowler: Ben Stokes. India: 4-119(rr 2.77)

42.1 FOUR! Stuart Broad to Virat Kohli. Short, outside off stump on the back foot pulling, well timed past deep backward square leg for 4 runs. Pulled with utter contempt, Kohli seems like he has so much time on the back foot. There are two men out in the deep but the Indian captain finds the gap with surgical precision.
Over 41. 1 run. Bowler: Ben Stokes. India: 4-113(rr 2.76)

40.5 Stuart Broad to Hanuma Vihari. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot pushing, inside edge to extra cover for no runs, fielded by Rashid. A bit of drizzle in the air now in South London. India need to realise there might not be long left in the day, its important to tough it out and survive this period.

38.3 Stuart Broad to Hanuma Vihari. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot dropped, to short extra cover for 1 run, shy attempt by Ali. First runs in Test cricket for Vihari, that will settle him down a bit.
38.2 Stuart Broad to Hanuma Vihari. In-swinging length ball, outside off stump on the front foot defending, to short leg for no runs, fielded by Jennings.
38.1 APPEAL! OUT changed by umpire to NOT OUT after REFERRAL. Stuart Broad to Hanuma Vihari. In-swinging back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot working, hit pad to for no runs, appeal made for L.B.W. This time the finger goes up, but immediately Kohli tells the debutant to review. Even Broad isnt convinced in the England huddle, they think it might be too high. Ball tracking confirms, so Vihari survives once again. Excellent review.

36.3 APPEAL! Stuart Broad to Hanuma Vihari. In-swinging length ball, outside off stump on the front foot working, hit pad to for no runs, appeal made for L.B.W. Big appeal, Broad with another hooping in-ducker but the umpire shakes his head. There is a long discussion about a possible review but eventually Root decides against it. Hell regret it though, ball tracking shows it wouldve smashed leg stump out of the ground. Vihari gets a slice of luck in his first Test knock.
36.2 Stuart Broad to Hanuma Vihari. In-swinging length ball, outside off stump on the front foot, shoulders arms to wicketkeeper for no runs, fielded by Bairstow.
36.1 Stuart Broad to Virat Kohli. Seaming in back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot working, hit pad to fine leg for 1 run, fielded by Curran.

35.5 OUT! Caught. James Anderson to Ajinkya Rahane. In-swinging length ball, outside off stump on the front foot pushing, outside edge to first slip, by Cook. Another one, Anderson is on fire and India are tottering. Rahane tentatively pokes at this, always dangerous against a bowler as skilful as Anderson, and the edge flies at a comfortable height to Cook. Not a great shot it has to be said, playing loosely away from the body. Indias lower order is now exposed in really tough conditions - the floodlights are on which is helping the ball to talk. Kohli can only look on helplessly from the other end.
35.4 James Anderson to Ajinkya Rahane. Out-swinging length ball, outside off stump on the front foot defending, to extra cover for no runs, fielded by Jennings.
35.3 James Anderson to Ajinkya Rahane. Out-swinging length ball, outside off stump on the front foot Steer, to gully for no runs, fielded by Buttler.

34.1 Stuart Broad to Virat Kohli. Short, outside off stump on the back foot pushing, to backward point for no runs, fielded by Buttler.

33.5 OUT! Caught. James Anderson to Cheteshwar Pujara. Out-swinging length ball, outside off stump on the front foot pushing, outside edge to wicketkeeper, by Bairstow. Got him, Anderson is rewarded for a probing spell as Pujara feathers one behind. Jimmy has been darting the ball in and out, causing this tentative stroke from a normally disciplined batsman. Bairstow pouches it safely and The Oval erupts in celebration.
33.4 James Anderson to Cheteshwar Pujara. Out-swinging length ball, outside off stump on the back foot, shoulders arms to wicketkeeper for no runs, fielded by Bairstow.

32.6 Stuart Broad to Cheteshwar Pujara. In-swinging half volley, off stump on the front foot flick, well timed to deep mid wicket for 3 runs, fielded by Jennings. Pujara breaks the sequence of 19 consecutive dots with a wristy flourish, taking India into three figures.

29.4 FOUR! James Anderson to Virat Kohli. In-swinging length ball, to leg on the front foot flick, well timed past fine leg for 4 runs. Kohli rubs salt into the wounds, dismissing this to the ropes with the minimum of fuss. Its getting spicy out there.
29.3 APPEAL! Verified by umpire after REFERRAL. James Anderson to Virat Kohli. In-swinging length ball, off stump on the front foot driving, hit pad to for no runs, appeal made for L.B.W. Massive appeal, England are convinced that Anderson finally has the wicket hes been after but the umpire shakes his head. Root reviews almost immediately, this is a big moment in the match. Kohli didnt pick up the in-swinger and was beaten on the inside edge, but ball tracking has it as umpires call on impact. Kohli survives by the smallest of margins, Anderson isnt happy at all. Drama.
29.2 James Anderson to Virat Kohli. Out-swinging length ball, outside off stump on the front foot driving, to backward point for no runs, fielded by Buttler.
29.1 James Anderson to Virat Kohli. Out-swinging length ball, outside off stump on the front foot pushing, missed to wicketkeeper for no runs, fielded by Bairstow.

28.6 FOUR! Moeen Ali to Cheteshwar Pujara. Off break length ball, outside off stump down the track driving, well timed past long on for 4 runs.

What a peach, Curran produces some magic on his home ground to get the breakthrough for England.

Perfect bowling and just what the hosts wanted. Big cheers around the ground now as Kohli strides out to the middle.

KL Rahul has been very positive and Cheteshwar Pujara his typical unflappable self in an unbeaten partnership of 47, leaving the match nicely balanced. This evening should be another gripping session.

16.5 Moeen Ali to Cheteshwar Pujara. Off break length ball, outside off stump on the front foot defending, inside edge to short leg for no runs, dropped catch by Cook.

2.1 OUT! L.B.W. Stuart Broad to Shikhar Dhawan. Seaming in length ball, outside off stump on the front foot defending, hit pad to. Broad strikes first ball, what a start for England. He starts around the wicket, an angle that has brought great success for him over the years, and Dhawan misses his prod forward. The new ball jagged appreciably back at the left-hander, leaving the umpire in no doubt. There was a long chat between the openers about whether to review, and it seemed at one point like Dhawan would make the signal but in the end he walks off.

122.6 OUT! Caught. Ravindra Jadeja to Jos Buttler. Stock length ball, outside off stump on the back foot driving, outside edge to first slip, by Rahane. Sighs around the ground as Rahane gobbles up the edge at slip. Buttler was just looking to find a single to retain the strike but this one spins just enough to kiss the edge. Jadeja gets his fourth wicket of the innings to wrap it up. nn That was a fantastic innings by Jos Buttler, switching in an instant from mature accumulation to destructive carnage. Hes lifted England to a position they could barely have dreamed of overnight, 332 all out. The clouds are still hovering over London so you would expect conditions to remain tough for batting for India this afternoon, they will have to be disciplined to survive.

121.1 SIX! Jasprit Bumrah to Jos Buttler. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot Slog, well timed in the air under control over deep mid wicket for 6 runs.

118.3 OUT! Caught. Ravindra Jadeja to Stuart Broad. Stock length ball, outside off stump on the front foot driving, mis-timed in the air uncontrolled to mid on, by Rahul. What a grab, Rahul takes a screamer over his shoulder. Broad fancied a piece of the spinner and was aiming to cart him into the stands, but it turned just enough to skew off the inner half of the blade. Rahul spotted it early and never took his eyes off it, clinging on with a dive at the end. His fielding in this series has been amazing.

What a fantastic morning for England. After the struggles of yesterday when runs were hard to come by, they have scored freely today with Jos Buttler dragging them up past 300. Hes received handy support from Adil Rashid and Stuart Broad to frustrate India. The tourists have had plenty of assistance from the pitch and in the air, but they have just started to look a little tired as the number of overs bowled piles up after an intense series.

99.5 FOUR! Ishant Sharma to Stuart Broad. Out-swinging length ball, outside off stump on the front foot driving, well timed in the air under control past deep extra cover for 4 runs. Fantastic stroke, Broad sometimes has issues getting his front foot forward but not on this occasion. A decisive movement and a languid swing of the blade, glorious.
99.4 Ishant Sharma to Stuart Broad. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot driving, to extra cover for no runs, fielded by Shami.
99.3 Ishant Sharma to Jos Buttler. Back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot cutting, to deep cover for 1 run, fielded by Jadeja.

98.3 FOUR! Jasprit Bumrah to Jos Buttler. Seaming away back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot driving, outside edge past third man for 4 runs. Buttler might just expand his game now with only a couple of wickets left. This one soars quickly off the edge, past a diving Kohli and away to the fence.
98.2 Jasprit Bumrah to Stuart Broad. Out-swinging length ball, outside off stump on the front foot pushing, to deep backward point for 1 run, fielded by Sharma.
98.1 OUT! L.B.W. Verified by umpire after REFERRAL. Jasprit Bumrah to Adil Rashid. Seaming in length ball, outside off stump on the back foot defending, hit pad to. Pinned him in front, Bumrah is too fast for Rashid. The Yorkshireman is stuck on the crease with the ball nipping back into him, and the umpire doesnt hesitate in raising the finger. Rashid takes a punt on a review, but ball tracking has it just clipping enough of leg stump to stay with the original call. India get their first of the morning, just as that partnership was beginning to annoy them.

96.5 FOUR! Jasprit Bumrah to Adil Rashid. Half volley, off stump on the front foot flick, well timed past deep mid wicket for 4 runs. Wristy brilliance from Rashid, earned through patience.

Another loud appeal but this time the ball is doing too much, swinging way down leg. Ishant is getting it to really hoop around corners this morning.

93.3 APPEAL! Ishant Sharma to Adil Rashid. In-swinging length ball, outside off stump on the front foot defending, inside edge to gully for no runs, fielded by Rahane, appeal made for L.B.W. Prolonged appeal, Ishant is on the floor pleading with the umpire but there is no response. It looked like a decent shout but replays show the thinnest of inside edges, so an excellent decision by the umpire.

92.1 FOUR! Jasprit Bumrah to Adil Rashid. Half volley, outside off stump on the front foot driving, well timed past deep cover for 4 runs. Thats a bit of a floaty loosener from Bumrah and Rashid climbs in with a free flowing drive to bring up the 200. Rashid is more than capable of hanging around, he has quite a few first class centuries to his name.

90.6 Good morning, welcome to coverage of Day Two of the Fifth Test between England and India at The Oval. Yesterday, Alastair Cook showed the grit and determination that has defined his career but it couldnt prevent the tourists from gaining the advantage. Indias fast bowlers were magnificent but had to remain patient until the rewards came thick and fast late in the day. Jos Buttler will hold the key this morning, he is capable of extraordinary things when given the license.

In-swinging length ball, off stump on the front foot flick, inside edge to for no runs, appeal made for L.B.W. The dreaded digit goes up once more, England are falling in a heap here. Buttler decides he might as well use the review although he doesnt seem confident about it. Well, replays show an inside edge much to the delight of the crowd. Buttler clearly didnt know much about it otherwise he wouldve reviewed straight away.
87.1 Mohammed Shami to Jos Buttler. In-swinging length ball, off stump on the back foot defending, to extra cover for no runs, fielded by Vihari.

85.4 APPEAL! Ishant Sharma to Jos Buttler. In-swinging back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot defending, hit pad to second slip for no runs, by Rahul, appeal made for Caught. India are convinced this is out, the ball balloons into the slips off the pad but they think there was an inside edge first. The umpires decide to send it upstairs, but replays show clear daylight between bat and pad. It was a vicious delivery, ripping back into Buttler.

83.5 OUT! Caught. Ishant Sharma to Sam Curran. Out-swinging length ball, outside off stump on the front foot, bottom edge to wicketkeeper, by Pant. Another one, Curran cant be Englands lower order hero with the bat. He was looking to leave this but cant get his hands up in time so the ball just brushes the toe-end as it soars through. Ishant is still charging in giving it everything late in the day, really impressive stuff.
83.4 Ishant Sharma to Sam Curran. Short, outside off stump ducked, Left past fine leg for 4 runs.
83.3 OUT! Caught. Ishant Sharma to Moeen Ali. Out-swinging back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot defending, outside edge to wicketkeeper, by Pant. Finally he gets a little feather on one, the faintest of edges gobbled up by the keeper. Moeen has played and missed countless times today and it hasnt bothered him one bit. Ishant has probed away relentlessly and deserves that.
83.2 Ishant Sharma to Moeen Ali. Out-swinging length ball, outside off stump on the front foot, shoulders arms to wicketkeeper for no runs, fielded by Pant.

78.5 OUT! L.B.W. Ravindra Jadeja to Ben Stokes. Stock ball half volley, off stump on the front foot working, hit pad to. Thats plumb, Stokes walks straight off with no thoughts of a review. He looked like he was thinking about sweeping that ball but then realised it was too full, and by that time he was in an awful position. Jadeja fired it in full and straight, and India have their fifth at a perfect time just before the second new ball.

74.6 Ravindra Jadeja to Ben Stokes. Stock length ball, outside off stump on the front foot defending, to silly point for no runs, fielded by Pant. Time for the final drinks break of the day. India finally got some reward for sustained accurate bowling in that phase of play. First Bumrah removed Cook and Root in the same over, then Bairstow nicked Ishant behind all in the space of nine balls. Moeen Ali has shown remarkable patience in an innings where he has missed the ball almost as much as hes hit it. The important thing is that hes still out there for the hosts.

65.4 OUT! Caught. Ishant Sharma to Jonny Bairstow. Seaming away length ball, outside off stump on the back foot defending, outside edge to wicketkeeper, by Pant. And another, England are in disarray. Another cracking delivery, this time Ishant gets reward. It shapes back in through the air and then nips away off the pitch, leaving Bairstow only able to feather one behind. Thats three wickets in nine balls for the tourists, what a spell.

64.5 OUT! L.B.W. Verified by umpire after REFERRAL. Jasprit Bumrah to Joe Root. In-swinging length ball, outside off stump on the front foot flick, hit pad to. Vociferous appeal that seems to go on forever, and finally the finger is raised. Root asks for a review but that looked pretty adjacent. The England skipper has developed this habit of falling across straight deliveries, especially to Bumrah with his awkward angle. Ball tracking shows three reds, so Root is gone without scoring and England lose a review. All of a sudden India are back in this contest with their tails up.
64.4 Jasprit Bumrah to Joe Root. In-swinging length ball, outside off stump on the front foot defending, to extra cover for no runs, fielded by Vihari.

64.2 OUT! Bowled. Jasprit Bumrah to Alastair Cook. Seaming in length ball, outside off stump on the back foot defending, inside edge to. Breakthrough, thats the moment India have been desperate for and its the obdurate Cook who has to depart. He gets a rousing reception as he makes the long walk off, but there is a tinge of disappointment as the crowd were willing him on to get a fairytale century. Bumrah just got the ball to nip off the surface at pace, leaving Cook unable to adjust.
64.1 Jasprit Bumrah to Alastair Cook. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot driving, to cover for no runs, fielded by Vihari.

61.1 APPEAL! Verified by umpire after REFERRAL. Ishant Sharma to Alastair Cook. In-swinging back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot working, hit pad to short leg for no runs, appeal made for L.B.W. Loud appeal but it looked like that was way too high. India take their time and then Kohli makes the signal at the last possible moment. Its a waste though, and leaves the tourists with no reviews left, as ball tracking confirms what we all suspected.
Over 60. 5 runs. Bowler: Jasprit Bumrah. England: 1-128(rr 2.13)
60.6 FOUR! Jasprit Bumrah to Moeen Ali. Length ball, middle stump on the front foot flick, well timed past deep backward square leg for 4 runs. Bumrah goes searching for the magic ball but it just drifts onto Moeens pads, allowing him to clip elegantly behind square. Thatll boost his confidence.

59.6 Ishant Sharma to Alastair Cook. In-swinging length ball, outside off stump on the front foot pushing, leading edge to fine leg for 1 run, fielded by Bumrah. Time for tea after a really hard fought session. Alastair Cook and Moeen Ali were subject to some fantastic deliveries, with the ball beating the bat regularly. Somehow, though, they have survived unscathed and slowly ticked the scoreboard along. India will be wondering how they havent managed to pick up at least one wicket this afternoon, although a couple of dropped catches hasnt helped their cause.

56.5 FOUR! Ravindra Jadeja to Alastair Cook. Stock ball back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot cutting, well timed past deep cover for 4 runs. Theres an anguished cry from Jadeja before this even hits the bat, hes seen enough of Cook to know hes not missing out on that filth. Every boundary is precious for the hosts as they slowly build their total.

47.6 Mohammed Shami to Alastair Cook. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot pushing, to long on for 2 runs, fielded by Sharma. An eruption of noise around The Oval as Cook moves past fifty with a gentle push.

43.6 Mohammed Shami to Alastair Cook. Back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot driving, to cover for no runs, fielded by Pujara. Drinks time at The Oval after a really engrossing passage of play. The run rate has crawled along at barely two an over as the Indian quicks have found extravagant movement this afternoon.

37.5 FOUR! Ishant Sharma to Alastair Cook. Out-swinging length ball, outside off stump on the front foot driving, well timed past deep extra cover for 4 runs. Crunched gracefully into the gap. Cook has been patient this afternoon and now tucks into a wide one.

34.4 FOUR! Jasprit Bumrah to Moeen Ali. Out-swinging length ball, middle stump on the front foot working, leading edge past third man for 4 runs. Not at all where he was intending to hit that but its a boundary nonetheless. Ishant and Bumrah have been bang on the money since the break, Cook and Moeen are just looking to weather this storm.
34.3 Jasprit Bumrah to Moeen Ali. Out-swinging length ball, outside off stump on the front foot, shoulders arms to wicketkeeper for no runs, fielded by Pant.
34.2 APPEAL! Verified by umpire after REFERRAL. Jasprit Bumrah to Moeen Ali. In-swinging length ball, outside off stump on the front foot, hit pad to for no runs, appeal made for L.B.W. Huge appeal as this delivery comes searing back at the left-hander and Moeen pads up. The Indians are imporing the umpire to raise the finger but hes having none of it. Kohli signals for the review but ball tracking shows it was going over the top, so a review lost for the tourists. Very good decision by the umpire.
34.1 Jasprit Bumrah to Moeen Ali. Out-swinging length ball, outside off stump on the front foot driving, to long off for 2 runs, fielded by Dhawan. Big cheers as Moeen manages to punch one down the ground.

32.2 Jasprit Bumrah to Moeen Ali. Out-swinging length ball, outside off stump on the front foot driving, outside edge to third slip for no runs, dropped catch by Kohli. And another chance is grassed, this time it is the skipper who is guilty. Moeen tries to release the pressure with a booming drive and the edge soars quickly to Kohlis left, but he cant hold on with one hand. That one was much more difficult, but Kohli sets high standards for himself so wont be happy at all. Bumrah has the ball on a string at the moment and is making it talk.
32.1 Jasprit Bumrah to Moeen Ali. Out-swinging length ball, outside off stump on the front foot pushing, missed to wicketkeeper for no runs, fielded by Pant.

31.5 Ishant Sharma to Alastair Cook. Out-swinging length ball, to leg on the back foot defending, thick edge to gully for no runs, dropped catch by Rahane. Put him down, frustration for the bowler. Ishant gets this one in the perfect channel to square Cook up, but Rahane cant cling on to the low chance. It went quite quickly but it was a regulation opportunity, Rahane will be very disappointed because he is normally very good in there. Maybe today is just meant to be Cooks day.
31.4 Ishant Sharma to Alastair Cook. Out-swinging length ball, outside off stump on the front foot, shoulders arms to wicketkeeper for no runs, fielded by Pant.

28.6 Jasprit Bumrah to Moeen Ali. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot defending, back to bowler for no runs, fielded by Bumrah. That completes a solid morning of work for Englands top order, not something that has been said too often in recent times. Joe Root didnt hesitate in electing to bat first after winning the toss, as the conditions look friendly for those wielding the willow. The Indian fast bowlers found a little bit of help, but it was the spin of Ravindra Jadeja that made the breakthrough when Keaton Jennings turned one into the lap of leg slip. Alastair Cook has treated us to a few trademark strokes and The Oval crowd will be hoping there is more to come this afternoon.

24.1 OUT! Caught. Ravindra Jadeja to Keaton Jennings. Stock ball back of a length, off stump on the back foot glancing, to leg slip, by Rahul. Deflected around the corner and straight into the hands of the man, Jennings is furious with himself. Jadeja is bowling a very straight line with plenty of fielders on the legside, and Jennings has fallen straight into the trap. Instinctively he looks to tickle this but it is a poor decision with the fielder lurking. Its a sharp catch by Rahul to give India their first success of the morning and bring Moeen to the crease.

With the series result already in the bag, the hosts will be hoping to give Alastair Cook the perfect retirement gift as he calls time on his stellar international career. The legendary opener has been a rock at the top of the order for well over a decade, with his powers of concentration and mental toughness second to none. Every nudge off the hip will be savoured over the next five days as England seek to end the summer in style. As one career comes to an end, another one begins with Hanuma Vihari making his debut for the tourists. With Virat Kohli losing yet another toss, hell be looking to his fast bowlers to set the tone this morning.
