Hosts in charge after day three

England look to be in a commanding position as they finished day three of the fifth Test on 114-2, with a 154-run lead over India.

Only two wickets fell after tea with Alastair Cook, playing his final Test for his country, managing to finish the day on 46 not out but his opening partner Keaton Jennings continued to struggle out in the middle.

Jennings left a fine ball from Mohammed Shami which clipped the top of his bails and sent the batsman back to the pavilion with a contribution of just 10.

The will be serious doubts regarding Jennings' future in the England side after what has been a tough series against the Indian bowling attack.

Moeen Ali was the next batsman in and the next to fall after he was out on 20 after being bowled by Ravindra Jadeja.

Skipper Joe Root managed to steady the ship for England and the Yorkshireman finished the day on 29 not out to put England in a strong position ahead of the day four at The Oval.

England are 8/11 to win the fifth Test, while India are 12/5 to secure the win.
