London, Sep 8 - England were restricted to 198 runs for the loss of seven wickets at stumps on Day 1 of the fifth and final Test match against India at the Oval cricket ground here on Friday. SCORECARD
Former England skipper Cook, who called time on his illustrious career before the final rubber, missed out on a century but still remained the top-scored for the hosts with a patient 71 off 190 balls before he was removed by Jasprit Bumrah.
Earlier, Joe Root had won the toss and elected to bat first.
All-rounder Moeen Ali, batting at No.3, got to a dogged 50 off 170 balls as well but India came roaring back in the third session after struggling to get wickets in the first two, to reduce England to 198 from 60/0 at one stage.
Pace spearhead Ishant returned best figures of 3/28, while Ravindra Jadeja -- playing his first match of the series -- and Bumrah grabbed two wickets each conceding 57 and 41 runs, respectively.
At stumps, Jos Buttler (11 batting) and Adil Rashid (4 batting) were at the crease.
