England reached 114 for two in their second innings at stumps on the third day of the fifth Test against India at the Kia Oval in London. At the close of play, England lead by 154 runs with eight wickets remaining. Earlier in the match, England skipper Joe Root won the toss and elected to bat first in the Alastair Cook farewell test meanwhile Virat Kohli make another record of losing all the 5 tosses of a Test Series. In the first innings, England were reduced to 198/7 on Day 1 thanks to some superb bowling by India’s Ishant Sharma and Jasprit Bumarh. However, the next day i.e. Day 2, the birthday boy Jos Buttler put an aggressive 98-run partnership with Stuart Broad to bring England back into the game. While India's susceptibility to quality swing bowling once again came to the fore as they struggled to reach 174 for six after England's tail wagged considerably to give the hosts an upper hand on the second day of the fifth and final cricket Test.
