England bundled out India for 148 on the first day of the fifth and final Test at The Oval.

Only 82 from India captain MS Dhoni prevented his side from being bowled out for under 100.

Chris Jordan and Chris Woakes picked up career best figures of 3-32 and 3-30, respectively, with new ball pair Jimmy Anderson and Stuart Broad claiming two wickets apiece.

Alastair Cook (24 not out) and Sam Robson (33 not out) took England through to 62 without loss in reply at stumps.

England ripped apart the tourists' top order, as India were reduced to 43-5 at lunch on an overcast morning with a green tinge to the pitch.

Gautam Gambhir went for a first ball duck as he failed to leave an Anderson outswinger before Cheteshwar Pujara (four) was bowled by Broad via the inside edge.

Virat Kohli's miserable series continued as he was lbw to Jordan for six, leaving a straight ball, before the seamer took a sharp return catch to remove Ajinkya Rahane for another duck.

Opener Murali Vijay was the only man in the top five to reach double figures but joined the procession as he edged Woakes to Joe Root at third slip on 18.

It was more of the same after the adjournment as Stuart Binny (five) edged Anderson to Cook at first slip before Ravichandran Ashwin (13) was caught by Root at third slip off Woakes.

Bhuvneshwar Kumar (five) only succeeded in edging a Jordan long-hop to Jos Buttler, behind the wicket, before Varun Aaron offered Woakes a return catch after making just a single.

However Dhoni, as he did when India slumped to 8-4 in the last Test at Old Trafford, stood firm and enjoyed a 58-run last-wicket partnership with Ishant Sharma.

Dhoni was final man out, as he pulled Broad straight to Woakes at long-leg after hitting 15 boundaries and driving Jordan over extra cover for six.

England are 2-1 up in the series after winning back-to-back matches in Southampton and Manchester.
