ENG vs IND: India is aiming for some early breakthroughs.© AFP
England and India have entered the final day of their fascinating fourth test at Kennington Oval, and the match is subtly prepared. England needs to win another 291 runs to complete the 368 chase, but India faces the big challenge of taking all 10 wickets. Haseeb Hameed and Rory Burns made England 77/0 at the end of Sunday’s day’s play after India put 466 on the board in two innings. Rohit Sharma recorded his first overseas test century, but Cheteswar Puhara, Shardul Thakur, and Rishabh Pants all recorded half a century as Indian batters afflicted England. However, England’s opening round has made a good start for their team and will appear to play longer on Monday, and England will look to their biggest chase in the test. (Live scorecard)
