England have gone with unchanged XI for the fifth Test against India at Kia Oval starting Friday, in what is Alastair Cook s farewell match.

Moeen Ali, fresh from taking nine wickets at Southampton as England secured the series, has been pencilled in to bat at No 3 and Jonny Bairstow will resume the wicketkeeping duties having fully recovered from the fractured finger he suffered at Trent Bridge.

This means that England captain will drop down a spot to his preferred No 4 position.

Moeen, in his first Test match since March, took 5/63 and 4/71 with his offspin and scored 40 batting at No 7 in England s first innings and 9 at No 3 in the second.

James Anderson is on 559 career Test wickets, needing five to surpass Glenn McGrath s record of most wickets by a fast bowler.

England XI: 1 Alastair Cook, 2 Keaton Jennings, 3 Moeen Ali, 4 Joe Root (capt), 5 Jonny Bairstow (wk), 7 Ben Stokes, 8 Jos Buttler, 9 Sam Curran, 10 Adil Rashid, 10 Stuart Broad, 11 Jimmy Anderson.
