IND vs ENG: Rohit Sharma and KL Rahul are in good shape in the series.© AFP
India will once again rely on their openers Rohit Sharma and KL Rahul if they want to take the lead against England on Day 3 of the fourth Test at the Oval. After England had scored 290, with a 99-run lead in the first innings, Rohit and Rahul survived a good spell of bowling to lead the visitors to Stumps without any damage to the wickets column. India will start Day 3 trailing 56 runs, and the opening pair in form will be key to their ambitions in the match. England, which took the lead thanks to half a century of Ollie Pope and Chris Woakes, will once again be confident in their bowling attack after knocking out India for just 191 times in the first innings.
