The Test series between England and India is now into the final Test. With hosts already 3-1 in the series, they have nothing to worry about.

On the other side, Virat Kohli and co will first have to get their playing eleven right to end this series on a light note. England's spinner Adil Rashid has almost no contribution in this series except a game-changing partnership with Sam Curran, but England still dominated last 3 out of 4 games.

However, when it comes to India, there are more than one or two 'Adil Rashid' in the team and that is why a perfect playing XI would give them better chance.

Last game, R Ashwin's inability to pick wickets despite a pitch that suited spinners had cost India the game. It wasn't easy to bat in the fourth innings and if the target wasn't big enough series would have been alive till now. 

The fifth Test is going to be a dead rubber and as per the former English captain Michael Vaughan it is England again who would win the Test and make it 4-1.

In his prediction video on Instagram, the 43-year-old also named few players who would excel in the game. The English captain Joe Root would score big along with India's Ajinkya Rahane, as Vaughan suggested. He picked two lanky pacers Stuart Broad and Ishant Sharma to bag wickets in this Test match at The Oval.

Vaughan also added that the Test might go to the fifth day as well.
