India and England have been engaged in a pulsating contest in the fourth and penultimate Test at the picturesque Kennington Oval, London. After four days of cricket, all three results are possible on Day 5, which promises to be an enthralling affair between two top sides in world cricket.

Virat Kohli and Ravindra Jadeja started from where they had left after early stumps on Day 3. While Jadeja looked set, he departed for 17 whereas vice-captain Ajinkya Rahane (0) continued to disappoint.
Kohli also fell for a good-looking 44 with India's lead being only 213 runs at that time. However, Rishabh Pant (50), Shardul Thakur (60) and valuable contributions from Umesh Yadav and Jasprit Bumrah took India to 466 all-out, setting up a challenging 368-run target for the hosts. At stumps, Haseeb Hameed-Rory Burns took England to 77 for no loss as all three results look possible on Monday (September 6).
