England captain Joe Root won the toss and decided to bowl against India at The Oval as Virat Kohli brought in Umesh Yadav and Shardul Thakur in place of Mohammed Shami and Ishant Sharma. For England, Chris Woakes and Ollie Pope came in place of Sam Curran and Jos Buttler for this Test. After losing the third Test match by an innings and 76 runs in Leeds, India will be looking to make a strong comeback. Root led from the front as the hosts outclassed India at Headingley to level the five-match series 1-1. On the eve of the fourth Test match, India added fast bowler Prasidh Krishna to their squad. After their emphatic performance, Root urged his side to be “ruthless” against Kohli-led India. “A world-class side like India, led by Virat Kohli, I expect nothing less than a response. It would be naive to think otherwise. We’ve just got ourselves back to level and, if we find ourselves ahead of the game at any stage, we must get ruthless again,” Root had said. (LIVE SCORECARD)
