After losing the series in Southampton, India will try to salvage some pride by winning the fifth and last Test match against England which starts at Kennington Oval in London on Friday.

India's top order batsmen especially openers have disappointed this series and they have one more chance to put up a far more inspired show and bowlers have been excellent throughout the series and will look to do the same in Oval too.

On the other hand, England would want to give a great farewell to their all-time leading run-scorer Alastair Cook who is retiring from international cricket after the Oval Test. England lead 3-1 in this five-Test match series.
