London: Aug 16, 2014

England are firmly in control against India on Day Two of the fifth Test at The Oval. After India’s abject surrender on Day One, wherein they were bundled out for just 148, England got to a secure score of 62 for no loss at Stumps. India have their task cut out for them, and unless they can take a lot of wickets very early, England could win the series a day or two early. Catch the live blog of the match here.

For England, Alastair Cook’s innings will be key. If the skipper can continue where he left off on Day One, England will be sure to get a good lead against India. On the other hand, Sam Robson has looked quite good in the middle, and the under-fire opener will be hoping to stake a claim to a more permanent spot in the series.
