Moeen Ali scored a well compiled fifty| John Walton-PA Images-GettyThe fifth and final Test match between England and India began at the Oval to some brilliant performance with the boll by the Indian team.

Joe Root won the toss and chose to bat first. India made two changes with Hanuma Vihari making his debut in place of Hardik Pandya and Ravindra Jadeja coming in place of R Ashwin.

Alastair Cook playing his 161st and last Test and Keaton Jennings put on a fifty run partnership with Indian bowling struggling a bit. However, soon Jadeja got Jennings caught at leg slip by Rahul for 23. Moeen Ali (50) and Cook (71) added 73 runs for the second innings before Bumrah clean bowled Cook.

Bumrah then got Root LBW for duck and Ishant had Bairstow caught behind by Pant for a duck. Stokes and Ali tried to stabilize the innings, but Jadeja trapped Stokes LBW for 11 and then Ishant sent back Ali and Curran (0) in the same over to push England on the back foot. Buttler and Rashid avoided further damage and England ended the day at 198/7.

Ishant Sharma picked three wickets, while Bumrah and Jadeja picked two each and the cricket fraternity on Twitter was amazed by the performance of Indian bowlers and appreciated their effort in form of tweets.
