Highlights from day five of the fifth Test between England and India

KL Rahul hit his fifth Test century for India but wickets for Moeen Ali and Ben Stokes edged England closer to victory in the fifth Test at The Oval.

Click play on the video at the top of the page to watch the best of the action as Rahul (108no) raced through the 80s and 90s with a flurry of boundaries to get the three figures in style as India reached 167-5 at lunch.

Rahul became the first India opener to get past 50 in this series early in the day as he and Ajinkya Rahane frustrated England for the first hour.

Ali eventually made the breakthrough when Rahane (37) toe-ended a sweep shot straight to Keaton Jennings halfway back at midwicket and Stokes had Hanuma Vihari (0) caught behind in the next over to leave England five wickets from victory.
