BOWLINGOMRWECON0s4s6sWDNB
Jasprit Bumrah3098332.761399200
63.2 to AN Cook, there will be no hundred for Cook unless he gets it in the third innings. There is a disappointed sigh at The Oval but then the crowd rises for Cook as he goes off after playing one on for 71. This is on a length, just outside off, possible with the switched seam position to send it back in. Cook is surprised by the movement back in, and gets the inside edge as he looks to defend. 133/2
63.5 to JE Root, A long long long appeal with no reviews left, and Joel Wilson finally gives it. Joe Root reviews it. This is full, and looks pretty adjacent. Not sure why it took Wilson that long to give it. Root falls over playing an inswinger, also plays across the line, not showing it the full face of the bat. The ball hits him in front of off, and would have hit leg. The replay confirms that, and England lose a review. Pretty ordinary review again. India right back in this. 133/3
97.1 to AU Rashid, this one skids through, and Rashid is given out lbw. He reviews it, though. This is on a length, outside off, seams back in as opposed to swinging. Goes past the inside edge, hits him low on pad. The review shows firstly that Bumrah has made the adjustment with the front foot and is nowhere near flirting with the no-ball. The projection shows it is clipping leg, and the decision stays, but England don't lose the review. 214/8
Ishant Sharma31126232.001517000
64.4 to JM Bairstow, one more duck for Bairstow, and Ishant has bowled really smartly. Batting not great from Bairstow. His stumps have been the target, Ishant tries that first up, but then bowls one outside off. The ball holds its line, Bairstow follows it with his hands without getting close to it. Easy catch for Pant. What an absolute turnaround here. 134/4
82.3 to MM Ali, edged, gone, Moeen snicks one at last! A carbon-copy of pretty much any one of the 30-40-odd plays-and-misses that he has totted up in his innings. Lifting off the deck, arrow-straight line on off stump, and demanding a stroke. The end of a diligent, self-denying knock. And India's hard-working day of toil gets better!. 177/6
82.5 to SM Curran, attempted leave from Curran, and he's gone for less than 20 for the first time in his career! A graze off an under-edge, you'd have been better off smashing it, son! England are now officially in freefall. Again. 181/7
Hanuma Vihari10101.0050000
Mohammed Shami3077202.401366000
Ravindra Jadeja3007942.631296000
23.1 to KK Jennings, Jennings goes! And out of nowhere, India strike! A familiar dismissal for Jadeja too, a tight wicket-to-wicket line, an attempted nudge to leg, but it comes straight off the face of the bat to leg slip! Cook, as mentioned, has been undone in that manner in recent times... Jennings will doubtless have just reminded him of the danger. And he is livid as he departs, thumping his bat with his glove as he walks off. 60/1
77.5 to BA Stokes, skids it through and Stokes is nailed on the pads! That is plumb, he lined up the wrong stroke to that delivery, it was too fast and flat to be working through midwicket, and England's evening stumble in the park is gathering pace!. 171/5
117.3 to SCJ Broad, KL Rahul is not dropping anything here. This is a sensational catch. A catch that is not quite appreciated enough when watching on TV. Broad tries to drive a length ball over mid-on, gets too much under it, and hangs it up in the air, but it looks like it will clear Rahul. Rahul, though, sprints back, keeping an eye on the ball, sees it fall over his shoulder, and then dives full length to catch it. Rahul has had a great catching series. 312/9
121.6 to JC Buttler, and Jadeja ends the innings. India refuse to give him the easy single to manipulate the strike, and it works for them. Buttler looks for the big shot to a length ball, it is not on, the ball turns, and takes a thick edge to slip where Rahne takes a good catch. Buttler ends on 89 and walks off to a big applause. 332/10

BOWLINGOMRWECON0s4s6sWDNB
James Anderson2175422.571036100
32.5 to CA Pujara, this is a very rare mistake from Pujara. He is mindful of that inswinger threat. He might just have premeditated because of that after Anderson has been bowling outswingers all over long. This is on a length, outside off, Pujara commits to a push, and the swing away takes the edge. Anderson gets rewards but this is not the man he really really wants. 101/3
34.5 to AM Rahane, and Anderson keeps taking men other than Kohli. Lovely bowling. Goes wide on the crease, makes Rahane play the angle back in, and then swings it late and away. Takes a healthy edge to first slip. 103/4
Stuart Broad2065012.50947000
1.1 to S Dhawan, seam movement with an accurate ball, and Dhawan is a sitting duck here. On a length, just outside off, no swing in the air, he plays the line, and then the ball seams back in to hit him plumb in front. Dhawan has a long chat with Rahul, has half a mind of reviewing, but walks off without doing so. 6/1
Ben Stokes1625623.50729100
46.2 to V Kohli, Stokes strikes, lands the big fish! Flashy drive and Kohli edges to second slip! Plenty of passion/spirit/niggle flying around out there, Stokes in the thick of it, and Kohli has made a misjudgement... Driving on the up with the ball just holding its line, Root gobbled up the chance. Kohli throws his head back in anguish, heads for the changing rooms, knowing there were less than 20 minutes left in the day. 154/5
48.3 to RR Pant, gottim, steered to slip on the walk! Stokes has another, cashing in on Kohli's rush of blood... Tight line and it nipped away, Pant's bat came down at an angle and Cook held a healthy outside edge. 160/6
Sam Curran1114914.45426000
22.1 to KL Rahul, this is like Wasim Akram to Dravid at a slower pace and slight less seam and slightly less dramatic. Unplayable ball. Shapes up to swing back in the air, it is swinging back, pitches on middle and off, Rahul has to play for the swing, but it pitches and seams the other way to beat the outside edge and hit the top of off. Sensational bowling. 70/2
Moeen Ali1735022.94725000
76.4 to GH Vihari, stretching forward, a snick off the edge as the ball turns back in from a tight fourth-stump line, and up goes the finger! But hang on, Vihari reviews. His bat and pad were very adjacent ... but so too was the ball. UltraEdge confirms a medley of noise at the moment of impact, and the third umpire has "no reason to overturn"... England have their wicket!. 237/7
82.5 to I Sharma, the drift gets Ishant. Just like Vihari. Flighted offbreak, moves away in the air, gets out of his eyeline. He plays the defensive shot for the offbreak, but it doesn't turn in as much as expected. But enough to take the outside edge. 249/8
Adil Rashid1021911.90461000
85.5 to Mohammed Shami, turns out he needed to shield Shami. Not from Rashid, but from himself. He has return-gifted Rashid a wicket. Has an almighty swing at a wrong'un with an in-and-out field in place. Broad takes the catch at long-on. Not good from Shami. 260/9

Mohammed Shami25311024.409316000
12.4 to KK Jennings, no need for reviews on this. Shami finally strikes. Poor shot from Jennings. Poor leave actually. The first rule of leaving is that you cover your stumps and at least make the umpire make the lbw decision. Here Jennings leaves the ball, but his off stump is exposed. This length ball seams back in, and takes the top of that exposed off stump. 27/1
100.6 to JM Bairstow, Bairstow is bowled one final time this series. Finally some luck for Shami. Bairstow pushes at an outswinger, but the ball doesn't move as much as he expects. Takes the inside edge onto the stumps. Bairstow falls but he batted with the right intent. England now lead by 395. 355/5
Ravindra Jadeja47317933.8018719200
27.4 to MM Ali, bowled through the gate! Well, the new nut has done the trick for India, but that was also an unnecessarily loose drive out of that dangerous rough from Moeen, a man who has done well to shelve his flights of fancy in this match, but couldn't resist this time. It was, also, to be fair, a fine ball, biting off the ideal line and length and crashing into the stumps, via an inside-edge. A timely strike!. 62/2
101.3 to JC Buttler, Jadeja gets a wicket after so many overs. Buttler plays a low-percentage shot looking for quick runs. Looks to hit across the line of a wide full ball, the ball turns, takes a thick edge, and lobs up for a catch. Hang on. They are checking the no-ball. It is very close. The umpire has to decide whether his heel is in the air behind the crease when the toe lands. It is not very clear either way but the benefit of the doubt goes to the bowler. 356/6
109.4 to BA Stokes, panned into the deep, Rahul at deep midwicket steadies himself, and pockets the catch - his 14th of a prolific series. The end of a decent cameo, but England aren't quite done yet. 397/7
Hanuma Vihari9.313733.89341110
94.1 to JE Root, Vihari has got a wicket in his first Test. And that too of the opposition captain. Root is looking for quick runs, and tries to slog-sweep this but it stops after pitching in the rough and takes a top edge to deep midwicket where substitute Pandya takes the catch. 321/3
94.2 to AN Cook, Vihari is on a hat-trick. Would you believe it? He has dismissed two centurions in two balls. Cook looks to cut, the ball skids through, and the edge settles in Pant's gloves. Every single Indian fielder shakes his hand. The last walk back for Cook. A big applause from the stands. Another generous reaction from the crowd. Cook takes one look back, raises his bat, waves it overhead, and walks off. Bairstow pats his back too. What a career. The old batsman has left the crease. And we know that he is done. 321/4
112.3 to SM Curran, a top-edged slog into the leg-side, a simple take for Pant, jogging round with the gloves, and Root says that's enough. 423/8

BOWLINGOMRWECON0s4s6sWDNB
James Anderson22.3114532.001157000
2.3 to S Dhawan, huge appeal as Dhawan is pinned in front of middle and off! Playing round the front pad, from round the wicket, and gets his bat in a tangle on the full length. Vague thought of using a review, but if there was no bat involved, that was plumb!. 1/1
2.6 to CA Pujara, plants the front foot, that's absolutely plumb, surely! Pujara wants to review, but he's taken too long, but that's probably a blessing for India, as he was utterly adjacent. 1/2
94.3 to Mohammed Shami, BOWLED 'IM! Anderson does it with the final wicket of the series! Middle stump is flattened! Nip-backer, through a lackadaisical defence, rattling the woodwork - just like Test wicket No1 - and Anderson becomes the most prolific fast bowler in history as England seal victory by 118 runs and take the series 4-1. How's that for a cherry on top of the summer?. 345/10
Stuart Broad1214313.58526000
3.2 to V Kohli, outside off, and Broad has bagged Kohli for a golden duck! Unbelievable scenes! Just dangled a little further outside off than usual, the sort of line that he could have battered through the covers, but he was half-cocked in defence, and India are in tatters now. 2/3
Moeen Ali1726814.00678100
35.3 to AM Rahane, oh dear, Jinks... ! He's toe-ended a sweep to midwicket! Just when Rahane seemed to be settling into a groove, Moeen tossed it up and he swiped hard across the line, the ball instead looping up in front of square to the waiting Jennings, who made no mistake. 120/4
Sam Curran922322.55465000
91.6 to I Sharma, Given caught at the wicket but Ishant has reviewed it immediately. Again that swinging ball that nips away after pitching. Too much for the tailender. On a length, just outside off, Ishant covers the swing, but the ball leaves him and takes a thin outside edge, UltraEdge confirms. The first replay was not conclusive, but technology leaves no doubt. Dharmasena has eked out another unsuccessful review. 336/8
93.4 to RA Jadeja, perfect line, drags him out, kisses the edge - Jadeja's a goner! Bairstow grabs this one tumbling to his left, Curran leaps and punches the air, India are nine down! And the opportunities for Anderson to go past McGrath are dwindling, too. 345/9
Ben Stokes1316014.615410100
36.4 to GH Vihari, short again, feathers the shoulder of the bat - gone! England's tactics pay immediate dividends, and Vihari adds a first Test duck to his maiden fifty (and three wickets) earlier in the match. This came back at a nasty height for the batsman and he just couldn't drop the bat down out of the way in time. 121/5
Adil Rashid1526324.20605300
81.1 to KL Rahul, Shane Warne, eat your heart out. Adil Rashid shuts everyone up. This is some humble pie for me and others. What a special ball. In the rough, almost at the edge of the cut strip. Rahul stays back to defend it as it turns sharply. It just turns too much and hits the top of off. Rashid proves his worth finally. It would have taken a great ball to get Rahul here, and Rashid has produced it. Big ovation for Rahul. 325/6
83.6 to RR Pant, this is not smart batting. He has not been picking the googlies, but he is still swinging hard. This googly runs off the outer half of the bat for a catch to long-off. Pant is distraught. He has played a sensational innings but the last 15 minutes or so have not been intelligent. Rashid has proven his worth, though. 328/7
