England were moving along well after tea with the youngsters Joe Root and Jos Buttler holding fort and extending their challenge on Day Two of the fifth Test against India at The Oval. What England have done is extend the lead and put pressure on India. They are past 300 and Joe Root is moving towards his fifty. However, they have just lost the wicket of Jos Buttler for 45.

India bowled very well in the afternoon session, but they could not do anything post tea. A lot of edges have actually flown through the slips and the fielders have been left gasping.

Ishant got a man to stand at mid-wicket and Buttler played it straight to him. England are now 309 for six. They are leading by 161 runs ahead but would want to extend that. Remember the Manchester Test? Though England had a lead around 200, they still won by an innings. That memory may haunt India if they bowl England out soon.
