Live updates between India vs England, 5th Test, Day 2, directly from The Oval, London
14:30 IST: Hello and welcome to live match updates on Day 2 of the 5th and last Test between India and England.
Moeen Ali tried to resuscitate England's innings with a patient 50 of 170 balls, but Ishant re-took two fields in three balls in the 83rd while England fell to 181 by 7. Mohammed Shami (0-43) also worked throughout the day and it was immensely unfortunate for not having picked up any land. Post-tea, Bumrah and Ishant began again with bright spells, and this time they got well-deserved rewards. Cook's dismissal began the collapse. I was playing playing in Bumrah in the 64th final. He made 73 runs with Ali for the second wicket.
Three balls later, Bumrah caught Joe Root lbw for a duck and the DRS ruled in favor of India. It became three terrains in nine balls when Sharma broke off from Bairstow, trapped behind. It was a consolation for goalkeeper Rishabh Pant, who had a difficult day behind the grounds, as the ball was sewn long after tea.
Ben Stokes (11) and Ali put 37 races for the fifth wicket and stopped the fall. The latter scored his thirteenth half century out of a slow 167 balls in this interim. Jadeja started the slide again, since Stokes got caught on the 78th lap. Having played and lost throughout the day, Ali finally managed to defeat Sharma in 83rd place.
