England unbeaten on 62 after dismissing India for 148

England end day one of the fifth Test against India on 62 without loss after dismissing the tourists for 148 at The Oval.

England have ended the evening session unscathed on 62 after dismissing India for 148 following a dominating display on the field at The Oval on day one of the fifth Test.

The hosts were made to wait for their 10th wicket due to a battling innings from MS Dhoni, but after tea, Stuart Broad was able to strike and send the Indian skipper packing having hit 82 runs from 140 balls.

England sent openers Alastair Cook and Sam Robson into bat for the final session of the day, but Cook was in danger of facing an early exit.

The captain should have been heading back to the pavilion after Bhuvneshwar Kumar's delivery resulted in lbw, but the umpire declared not out with the idea that the outswinger pitched outside leg.

However, replays showed that Cook, who impressed in Southampton and Old Trafford, should have been out as it would have taken middle and off.

Cook (24 not out) and Robson (33 not out) will return to the crease tomorrow as England trail by 86 runs.
