India will take on the field at the Oval on day 5 of the fifth and final Test of the ongoing five-match Test series against England with a hope to save the match after a dismal performance with the ball. Chasing a huge target of 464, the Virat Kohli-led India lost three quick wickets in the initial overs of pace duo of James Anderson and Stuart Broad. Today is also the day when Alastair Cook takes the field for the final time in his illustrious career.
With vice-captain Ajinkya Rahane and flamboyant batsman KL Rahul on the crease, India will pray for some magic so that they can save the final Test match at the Oval.
