Buoyed by their comprehensive win over India in the third Test at Leeds, England have the psychological edge over their counterparts heading into The Oval. Captain Joe Root has led by example, amassing 507 runs in the series so far by pulverizing three hundreds and one fifty, much to India's chagrin. His average reads an eye-popping 126.75 with the top score being 180. The hosts trained hard on the match eve and looked in fine fettle to consolidate their position on the scoreline.
