ENG vs IND: India will be looking for some early breakthroughs.© AFP
England and India enter the final day of the exciting fourth test at the Kennington Oval with the match delicately balanced. England have yet to score 291 runs to complete their chase of 368, while India faces the big task of taking all 10 wickets. Haseeb Hameed and Rory Burns brought England to 77/0 at the end of the day on Sunday after India put 466 on the board in their second innings. Rohit Sharma scored his first overseas Test century, while Cheteshwar Pujara, Shardul Thakur and Rishabh Pant all scored half a century as the Indian batsmen made England toil hard. But the England openers got their team off to a good start and will be playing long on Monday, as will England’s biggest ever chase in Tests. (Live Scorecard)
