Rishabh Pant brings up his maiden Test century with a six! He had opened his account in Test cricket with a six to Rashid and brings up his maiden Test ton with a maximum to the same bowler too!

Rishabh Pant brings up his maiden Test half-century, keeping India's hopes alive. It has been a good knock from Pant so far. But maybe a pointless one for the visitors at this stage.

LUNCH! India go into the Lunch break at 167/5 with KL Rahul on 108 and Rishabh Pant on 12. India need 297 runs more to win and England need five more wickets. Not going to be easy for India to save things from here but KL Rahul has shown plenty of resolve to make things difficult.

Numbers game: KL Rahul joins Sunil Gavaskar and Shikhar Dhawan as the only Indian openers to score a century in the fourth innings of an away Test.

India vs England 5th Test Day 5 Live: KL RAHUL CENTURY

CENTURY! KL Rahul with a boundary down the ground to Ben Stokes and brings up his fifth Test century. Virat Kohli and the Indian dressing room applauds the effort. Too little, too late?

17:16 (IST) 11 Sep 2018
India vs England 5th Test Day 5 Live: FOUR! FOUR! SIX! FOUR!

KL Rahul with three boundaries and a six in seven balls - 18 runs in 7 balls  that is - and out of nowehe, he is within three runs of getting a hundred. Ben Stokes getting wee predictable with the bouncers and Rahul ready for it

Rishabh Pant comes out to bat ahead of Ravindra Jadeja who had scored 86 in the first innings.

India vs England 5th Test Day 5 Live: WICKET!

GONE! Hanuma Vihari with a fifty run knock in the first inning and now walks for a duck.  Ben Stokes strikes and India go five down. Short delivery outside off, Vihari stays in his crease and pokes at it rather needlessly. Gets the outside edge and goes into the gloves of Bairstow. 

16:52 (IST) 11 Sep 2018
India vs England 5th Test Day 5 Live: WICKET!

GONE! Ajinkya Rahane departs for 37 runs from 106 balls and Moeen Ali strikes. How many times has Moeen taken a key wicket this Test to disrupt a well-set pair? Does so again. Absurd shot by Rahane. Totally unnecessary. One would expect more from a player of his experience and patience. Went for the sweep shot, got way early to it and gets the toe end of the bat. Pops comfortably in Jennings' hands. 

16:49 (IST) 11 Sep 2018
India vs England 5th Test Day 5 Live: FOUR! FOUR!

Back-to-back boundaries for Ajinkya Rahane off Sam Curran. First ball, he clips it with the swing through deep square leg and it goes for a noundary. Next ball, back of a length and it is punched for a boundary

India vs England 5th Test Day 5 Live: ENGLAND REVIEW

KL Rahul is hit in front on the pad. England appeal and the soft signal is of not out. Joe Root opts to review. The delivery stayed low as Rahul shuffled across but misses it completely. The impact was outside off and the decision stands. England lose their review

16:06 (IST) 11 Sep 2018
India vs England 5th Test Day 5 Live

India's opening slot problems can be highlighted by the fact that KL Rahul's fifty is the first fifty by an Indian opener away from home in 2018. And India have played a long series against South Africa and now England. 

15:35 (IST) 11 Sep 2018
India vs England 5th Test Day 5 Live: FIFTY!

End of the first over of the fifth day and KL Rahul reaches his fifty - his first of the series. Loose line by Anderson, on the pads and plays it in front of square for a boundary

Hello and Good Afternoon! Welcome to our continued live coverage of India's tour of the UK which began with games against Ireland and now it finishes at The Oval in London. Been a roller coaster of a performance at times by the Indian times and emotions that go with it. But as things stand, India would be pretty exhausted but would need to put out all stops to try and finish without a defeat. Early signs of the chase - a 464 runs at that - had India reeling under the intensity of the England seam attack. KL Rahul and Ajinkya Rahane persisted to settle nerves but they have a massive task ahead of them.

India vs England 5th Test Day 5 Live Cricket Score: After scoring 147 in his final Test innings, Alastair Cook is only waiting for a win over India - and the birth of his third child - to complete the perfect ending to his England career. Playing in his 161st and final Test match, Cook scored his 33rd Test century on Monday before India slumped to 58-3 on Day 4 of the fifth Test at the Oval, chasing 463 runs to win and leaving England seven wickets away from extending its 3-1 series lead. Cook and his successor as captain, Joe Root, both struck centuries in a 259-run third-wicket partnership, allowing England to declare on 423-8 and set India an imposing last innings target. (AP)
