England Dominate Once Again
India 148 (Dhoni 82, Woakes 3-30, Jordan 3-32) v
England 62-0 (Robson 33no, Cook 24no)
Fifth Test, The Kia Oval, day one
England bowled India out for 148 on the opening day of the fifth and final Test at the Kia Oval before closing on 62 without loss, trailing by 88 runs.
After winning the toss and bowling first, they reduced India to 44 for six before MS Dhoni's 82 hauled the tourists past 100.
However, even he could not resist England's excellent display, which saw Chris Woakes and Chris Jordan take three wickets apiece with James Anderson and Stuart Broad claiming two each.
Murali Vijay (18) and Ravichandran Ashwin (13) were the only others to reach double figures for India, who trail England 2-1 in the series.
Openers Alastair Cook (24 not out) and Sam Robson (33 not out) then compiled an unbroken half-century stand to further press home England's dominance.
There were a few nervy moments for both, but this was comprehensively England's day.
