England's Off-spinner Moeen Ali derails India's Chase at Southampton result of this Virat Kohli's men lose the five-Test match series.

Virat Kohli's men all-out for 184. England's young all-rounder Sam Curran nails the final coffin. England wins the series 3-1 with one more Test to go. England win by 60 runs.

Batting beautifully in the second session, Virat and Rahane stitched together a brilliant partnership of 111 runs for the fourth wicket after suffering a top-order collapse. Both the batsmen frustrated the England bowlers denying them any wicket in the entire session. 

India should be looking to make some changes their playing XI for the last match. The ones to face the music could be Rahul and Ashwin. 

Indian skipper Virat Kohli cited that "There are no negatives for us in this games but England played better than us. We just need to take positives from the match. England's lower-order were braver than us and that proved to be the difference between winning and losing. We are not going to throw in the towel for next game, but come out with the same intensity".

Australia is up next in terms of touring and India will do well to try something different, with Prithvi Shaw and Hanuma Vihari available for some experimentation at the Oval. Apart from that, 3-1 loss in 4 Tests is pretty downhearted.

Indian Squad:

Shikhar Dhawan, Lokesh Rahul, Cheteshwar Pujara, Virat Kohli(c), Ajinkya Rahane, Hardik Pandya, Rishabh Pant(w), Ravichandran Ashwin, Ishant Sharma, Mohammed Shami, Jasprit Bumrah

England Squad:

Joe Root (c), Alastair Cook, Keaton Jennings, Jonny Bairstow, Jos Buttler, Oliver Pope, Moeen Ali, Adil Rashid, Sam Curran, James Anderson, Stuart Broad, Chris Woakes, Ben Stokes, James Vince.
