Bhuvneshwar Kumar finally got a wicket in the fifth Test between India and England at The Oval. Chris Woakes was dismissed for no score when he tickled one down the leg-side. England are now 321 for seven with a lead of 170. Joe Root and Chris Jordan are in the centre. Meanwhile Joe Root also got his century.

Bhuvneshwar has toiled hard through the series and this is a reward after a long tour for India. Though, it doesn;t seem as if it may have much of an impact as England are in control and India’s batting doesn’t inspire much confidence.

Earlier in the afternoon session, India were on song by picking four wickets. But after that, Joe Root and Joss Buttler got the runs to get England back in control.
