London: England finished at 62/0 in the first innings, trailing India by 86 runs at stumps on Day 1 in 5th Investec Test at The Oval here Friday.

Alastair Cook and Sam Robson remain unbeaten on 24 and 33 respectively.

Earlier, India were bowled out for 148 by England shortly after tea. Skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni led the fightback with a gritty 82.

Indian batsmen cut a sorry figure again after they were put in by England captain Alastair Cook.

England pacers -- Chris Jordan (3/32) and Chris Woakes (3/30) were the chief destructors while James Anderson (2/51) and a fit-again Broad (2/27) put on a spirited performance to blow away the top Indian batting order.

Indian batsmen were done in by swing the England bowlers got under overcast conditions.

Besides Dhoni, only Murali Vijay (18) and Ravichandran Ashwin (13) could get to double figures.
