MS Dhoni has been dismissed on Day three of the fifth Test between India and England at The Oval. He was caught at forward short leg off the bowling of Chris Woakers. India are now 47 for five with Stuart Binny and Virat Kohli in the middle.

Earlier, India had lost both their openers before lunch as James Anderson dismissed Murali Vijay and then Gautam Gambhir was run out. India will now face a 3-1 defeat and if they are to do something, they would need something extraordinary. Cheteshwar Pujara and Ajinkya Rahane fell soon after.

Earlier in the day, Joe Root had smashed his 5th test ton and helped England score 486.
