5th Test Live: Stuart Broad Strikes As Shikhar Dhawan Departs Cheaply

A brilliant 90-run partnership between Jos Buttler and Stuart Broad for the ninth wicket steered England to 304 for the loss of eight wickets at lunch on Day 2 of the fifth and final Test at The Oval, London. Jos Buttler led the way for England as the hosts managed 106 runs in the morning session on Day 2. Resuming on the overnight score of 198 for seven, Buttler and Rashid first stitched a 33-run partnership for the eighth wicket. However, Adil Rashid’s (15) stay in the middle was cut short as Jasprit Bumrah trapped him in front of the wicket. But then Stuart Broad came in and frustrated the Indian bowlers further. Along with Buttler, Broad batted confidently throughout the entire second half of the morning session. Buttler celebrated his birthday by notching up his tenth fifty in Test cricket. The right-handed batsman remained unbeaten on 63 alongside Stuart Broad on 36 runs when umpires decided to go for lunch. For India, it was a tiring session as they managed only one wicket in the entire session. (LIVE SCORECARD)

14:30 IST: Hello and welcome to the live match updates of Day 2 of the 5th and final Test between India and England.

Moeen Ali tried to resurrect England’s innings with a patient 50 off 170 balls but Ishant returned to take two wickets in three balls in the 83rd over as England further slipped to 181 for 7. Mohammed Shami (0-43) also toiled throughout the day and was immensely unlucky to not have picked up any wickets. Post-tea, Bumrah and Ishant started off with brilliant spells again, and this time they got deserved rewards. Cook’s dismissal started the collapse. He was bowled playing on off Bumrah in the 64th over. He put on 73 runs with Ali for the second wicket. 

Three balls later, Bumrah trapped Joe Root lbw for a duck, with DRS ruling in favour of India. It became three wickets in nine balls as Sharma nicked off Bairstow, caught behind. It was some consolation for keeper Rishabh Pant who had a tough day behind the wickets as the ball seamed a lot after tea.

Ben Stokes (11) and Ali put on 37 runs for the fifth wicket and stemmed the downfall. The latter scored his 13th half-century off a slow 167 balls in this interim. Jadeja began the slide again, as Stokes was trapped lbw in the 78th over. Having played and missed through the day, Ali finally managed to nick Sharma behind in the 83rd over.
