Twitter Reactions: Alastair Cook grinds India to put England ahead in the Oval Test

Posted On / /

Alastair Cook’s typically grinding effort of 46 not-out in his final Test innings before international retirement has left England in a strong position in the fifth Test against India at the Oval on Sunday.

England were 114 for 2 in their second innings at stumps on the third day, a lead of 154 runs, having already won the five-match Test series at 3-1 up.

Now Cook and captain Joe Root (unbeaten 29), will look to pile on the agony for India when they resume their unbroken third-wicket partnership of 52 on Monday.

Earlier, India’s all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja made an excellent comeback in Test cricket by starring with both bat and ball.

Jadeja, playing his first Test of the series after being recalled in place of the injured Ravichandran Ashwin, added to his haul of four first-innings wickets by top-scoring with 86 not-out in India’s first-innings total of 292.

Here is how the Twitter world reacted to the action all through the day:
