    Another delivery which lands in the rough around off and turns back in sharply. Moeen gets on the front foot to drive it but misses the ball completely. It sneaks through the gap between bat and pad and shatters the stumps. The Indians are ecstatic. The 35-run stand has been broken

    The impact indeed is outside off. Jadeja tosses this one up and lands a full ball outside off. It spins back in after hitting the deck as Keaton opts for the sweep shot. He though fails to connect and is rapped on the pads. They put in an unsuccessful appeal. Kohli consults his bowler who tells that there was no bat and then his keeper also is confident. India take the DRS but the replays find that the point of impact outside off. A review wasted.

    Shout for an lbw. Keaton Jennings has missed his sweep shot and is thudded on the pads. The umpire turns down the appeal and Kohli takes the DRS after consulting his bowler and the keeper. Is impact outside off?

    And in walks Alastair Cook for the last time for England

  • 7:27 PM IST

    What an excellent hour of play this was for India. England came out after the Lunch break hoping of bundling the remaining wickets out quickly and for once it also looked like that when Shami and Ishant fell quickly. However, Jadeja and Bumrah frustrated the English side. The former played his shots and the latter hung in there with him and courtesy their partnership, the two have only given a small lead of 40 to the hosts.

  • 7:24 PM IST

    ALL OUT – Jaspirt Bumrah run out as India are all out for 292. Ravindra Jadeja stranded at 86*. England lead by 40 runs

  • 6:31 PM IST

    50 – for Ravindra Jadeja with a boundary off Moeen Ali. India 254/8, trail England by 78 runs and he is turning it on. Takes another four off Adil Rashid

    50 partnership up between Hanuma Vihari and Ravindra Jadeja. A fantastic effort this. Much needed for India. The last recognised pair continues to fight it out. India 210/6, trail England by 122 runs.

  • 4:20 PM IST

    200 up for India. Ravindra Jadeja edges one past slips and the ball races away to the boundary. He follows it up with another four, almost identical and Anderson has his hands on his hips.

  • 4:12 PM IST

    The debutant has looked so much better today.

  • 4:09 PM IST

    Only 12 runs scored. Anderson and Broad have their tail up and they are constantly beating the edges of Vihari and Jadeja’s bats. Credit however, must also be given to the two batsmen for fighting it out in the middle. Just one loose delivery on offer, which was flicked by Jadeja towards the square-leg boundary. Barring that, England’s seamers are on the mark.

  • 3:45 PM IST

    Four overs bowled and the going hasn’t been easy for India. Anderson and Broad have made atleast 12 of the 24 deliveries go past the outside edge of Vihari and Jadeja’s bat. Just 4 runs scored. There’s movement and the batsmen are tentative to come forward.

  • 3:29 PM IST

    And here we go! The players are out there. India 158 behind. Stuart Broad has the ball. And he’d have his tail up. Three slips and a short leg in place. Vihari to take strike.

Highlights India vs England, 5th Test, Day 3 Full Cricket Score and Result: Alastair Cook unbeaten as England take 154-run lead
India's quest to end the series on a high was severely dented.

Hello all. Welcome to CricketCountry‘s coverage of Day 3 of the fifth and final Test between India and England at the Oval. If you’re an Indian fan, you’d probably be wondering what can the Indian team conjure up being restricted to 174/6. On another forgettable day, Indian bowlers first let England get to 322 from 198/7. Then in reply, the batsmen surrendered even as Virat Kohli, Cheteshwar Pujara and KL Rahul got starts.

Once Rahul departed, India lost wickets in a cluster. Debutant Hanuma Vihari had a jittery beginning to his Test career. But the important thing is that he is still out there, along with Ravindra Jadeja. They are the last recognised pair for India and key to India’s chances. But the way India’s middle order has fared in the series, anything above 200-220 should be considered bonus.

England, on the other hand, couldn’t have asked for a better day. They were rescued by Jos Buttler who batted with the lower order and put on 98 ruins with Stuart Broad for the final wicket. Then, the pacers struck. James Anderson and Ben Stokes picked up two wickets each to give England the upper hand. What will happen when the two sides take field on Sunday? Will India muster the courage to put up something significant? How much first-innings lead will England be able to acquire? Stay tuned. We’re about to begin Day 3 of this final Test.
