London: England bowled India out for 292 to establish a 40-run first-innings lead on the third day of the fifth and final cricket Test at the Oval on Sunday.
In reply to England’s first innings total of 332, Ravindra Jadeja struck a thrilling 86-run, while debutant Hanuma Vihari contributed 56 in his first test appearance.
India began the day with 174-6 and a 77-run seventh-wicket partnership between Jadeja and debutant Hanuma Vihari dig the visitors out of the precarious position.
Vihari (56) reached his maiden Test fifty off 104 balls. When it appeared that Vihari would take India to lunch without any loss, Moeen Ali dismissed him.
England have already taken 3-1 lead in the series, with wins in Birmingham, Lord’s and Southampton. India won the third Test at Nottingham.
