India are recovering after two early wickets in the fifth Test against England at The Oval. They are currently 19 for two in the 11th over and Murali Vijay and Virat Kohli are currently batting in the middle. Stuart Broad and James Anderson have bowled unchanged since the start.

Kohli had a few nervous moments as he played and missed outside the off-stump. He was also leaving a few that were very close to the stumps. He finally got off the mark by playing one through the off-side.

Earlier, England won the toss and chose to bowl first. They made no changes to their side. However, India brought in Ishant Sharma and Stuart Binny in place of Pankaj Singh and Ravindra Jadeja. India then lost Gautam Gambhir in the first over as he was caught behind first ball. And then, Cheteshwar Pujara was bowled by Stuart Broad.
