India reached tea on 298-5 on day five of the fifth Test at The Oval and are just 166 runs away from securing a record victory over England.
KL Rahul has built on his century secured in the morning session by moving on to 142, while Rishabh Pant, who was on 12 at lunch, became the youngest player at the age of 20 years 342 days to hit a ton at The Oval and is unbeaten on 101 at the tea break.
England have toiled in the field as they desperately look for a breakthrough, while James Anderson continues to search for the one wicket which will move him ahead of Glenn McGrath as the most successful fast bowler in Test cricket.
The longer the pair remain at the crease, it will give India belief that they can successfully chase down a world record target of 464 for the victory.
England, who still require five wickets, are 1/200 to win and wrap up a 4-1 series win, while India are priced at 1000/1 for the win and the draw is 20/1.
