Highlights India vs England: Virat Kohli (49) scored the highest for India while James Anderson and Stuart Broad took two wickets each to put their team on top at stumps on Day 2.
England displayed an all-round performance on Day 2 to take an upper-hand in the fifth and final Test against India at The Oval. Resuming the innings overnight, Jos Buttler struck a patient 89 to help England cross the 300-run mark before the Indian bowlers wrapped up the English innings for 332 shortly after lunch. Indian opener Shikhar Dhawan yet again failed to perform with the bat as Stuart Broad dismissed him for just 3. Following which, KL Rahul took the attack to the opposition and struck some boundaries. KL Rahul (35) and Cheteshwar Pujara (15) steadied the Indian innings after Dhawan's departure. However, Sam Curran broke the partnership and gave England a breakthrough by dismissing KL Rahul for 37. Virat Kohli (49) and Cheteswar Pujara (37) held the Indian innings for a short while but James Anderson cut short Pujara's stay and also sent Ajinkya Rahane packing for a duck. All rounder Ben Stokes gave England the biggest breakthrough by dismissing Kohli on 49 just overs before the end of day's play. Rishabh Pant, too, could only score just 5 as Stokes got his second. For England, Ben Stokes and James Anderson picked up two wickets apiece while Broad ended the day with just one wicket in his kitty. India now trail England by 158 runs. (SCORECARD)

14:45 IST: Looking to wrap up things quickly.
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.
