LIVE India vs England 2018, 5th Test Day 1 Live Cricket Score Kennington Oval: Indian bowlers came out with what can be said as a brilliant and disciplined performance as England ended Day One of the fifth and final Test at 198-7 at the Kia Oval on Friday.

Ishant was pick of the bowlers, at least in terms of wickets as he took three important wickets—Moeen Ali, Jonny Bairstow and Sam Curran. He was well supported by Jasprit Bumrah and Ravindra Jadeja who both took two-two wickets. Not to forget Mohammed Shami, who kept bowling on probing lines and kept asking questions of the English batters.

Alastair Cook, playing his final Test was England, made the highest contribution as he scored what was a fighting yet important 71-run knock.

Earlier, England won the toss and chose to bat first in what is Cook’s final Test for India. After completing a clean sweep of toss victories for the series, England remained unchanged from its fourth test win, which gave the home team an unassailable 3-1 lead. India made two changes as batting all-rounder Hanuma Vihari made his debut at the expense of Hardik Pandya, while injured spinner Ravichandran Ashwin was replaced by Ravindra Jadeja.
