India are all set to play their fifth and final Test match of the ongoing series against England at The Oval. England have already gone up in the series by two matches to one in spite of losing the second Test at The Lord’s. Indians will look to bounce back and square the series.

The English players were looking really positive in the training session ahead of the final Test. On the other hand Indians will need to step up and perform when it is needed the most. Skipper MS Dhoni have already faced a lot of criticism after losing back to back Test matches, one at The Ageas Bowl and the other one at Manchester. He needs to stop trying hard and stick to the basics which makes him different from any other captain in the world.
Alastair Cook & co. were all over the place in the Lord’s Test but ever since then they have shown real characters. Ian Bell and Cook had a miserable run with the bat this summer and they both have turned it over. So, India will face a tough task at The Oval.
