Indian cricket team continued their poor run in overseas condition as they struggled against England once again on the day 4 of the fifth and final Test match at the Oval. Chasing a mammoth target of 464, the Virat Kohli-led India were given a hammer blow by the duo of James Anderson and Stuart Broad as they both dismissed Dhawan, Pujara, and Kohli for 1, 0, 0 respectively. Anderson scalped two wickets with Broad taking one.
Earlier on day 4, playing his farewell Test, England opener Alastair Cook smashed a brilliant 147 to bow out from International cricket in style, whereas skipper Joe Root broke his century jinx and scored 125 runs. England declared at 423 for 8.
With more 406 runs needed and around 90 overs to be played with three wickets down, to save or win this Test will be a Herculean task for the Indian team.
